Superman might be "able to leap tall buildings in a single bound," but if Henry Cavill was hoping to clear up reports that he's removing the "S" from his chest, it might take more than one mysterious social media post.
In a video shared to Instagram Wednesday evening, the 35-year-old English actor, donned a T-shirt emblazoned with the text "Krypton Lifting Team," giving a shout-out to Superman's home planet. While intensely looking at the camera, Cavill slowly raised and lowered a Superman action figure. "Today was exciting," he cracked in the video's caption, adding "#Superman."
Some of those who commented on the video were left befuddled.
"What are you doing?!" one user asked, while another wondered: "What does this mean?" Another pleaded: "Please don't leave superman, you are the best of all times!!!!"

Earlier Wednesday, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Cavill, who has worn the cape for three movies, was "parting ways with Warner Bros." The studio told USA TODAY in a statement that "no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films" and that the studio has "always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.”
