It does not look good for Henry Cavill as Superman in future DC Universe films and many fans on the internet have been lamenting the loss already. This includes popular internet artist BossLogic, who is drawing comparisons to everybody’s favorite wall-crawler, Spider-Man.
The artist recently shared one of his works via Twitter, something he referred to as a “Superman no more” tribute. The image calls on the famous image of from Amazing Spider-Man number 50 where Spider-Man can be seen walking away from his discarded Spidey suit, which lay disposed of in a back alley trash can. Of course, the twist here is that, instead of Spider-Man, it is Henry Cavill, aka Superman, aka Clark Kent, who is walking away from his responsibilities.
In addition to his art, the artist also included a heartfelt statement about the situation:
“I started making a (Superman no more) tribute when I first heard the news thought I’d finish it. Seen the video, read the statement and still unsure what is going on with the future of #superman seems like they may be benching him for awhile. I wish Henry all the best regardless“
