Despite the rumors regarding his role as Superman, actor Henry Cavill appears to be getting back into a similar shape for his role for ‘The Witcher’.
In a recent post on his Instagram account, the Superman actor shared a picture of himself in the gym. In it he went on a lengthy discussion about the physical journey he has gone through to get in shape and remain in shape. He also talked about other bodybuilders and the lengths they put themselves through. He also thanked the people who had helped him on this long journey.
Henry Cavill’s full post and picture can be seen below:

The journey continues. Thank you to Mr Dave Rienzi for being such a wonderful guide. My physical journey over the years has been an interesting one, with plenty of pit falls and plenty of moments of reward. I've been reflecting on them a lot recently and I've been very fortunate to work with some fantastic minds. I'm thankful to them all. Recently I've been exploring some of the big players in bodybuilding, both from the past and the present. It's absolutely fascinating to see what they put themselves through, the drive and mental strength required to get to such a place physically. Phil Heath in particular has caught my eye not only for his achievements but also for his genuinely humble and informative approach to his messaging. All this while being a 7x Mr Olympia. If you haven't checked out his page it's worth a peek. @DaveRienzi @PhilHeath #GymStuff
This sadly does not confirm anything for his role as Superman and the rumors continue to persist about Henry Cavill being out of the role as part of Warner Bros. attempts to revamp the franchise. Previously actor Amy Adams commented that she seemed to think that she was done as Lois Lane but then partly recanted revealing that she hadn’t actually talked to anyone about leaving the role. Aquaman actor Jason Momoa, however, seemed to think that Henry Cavill was still in and has continued to shoot down rumors that the actor is out. But in this business, it can be hard to say what is sold fact and what is simply speculation and rumor.
This picture itself is more than likely the actor getting in shape for his role of Geralt of Rivia in the upcoming Netflix series, The Witcher. It is worth noting, however, that the protagonist has a leaner build then Henry Cavill does in this image. So perhaps a return to Superman is not out of the question.
What do you all make of this image? Would you like to see Henry Cavill return to the role of Superman? Are you looking forward to seeing him portray Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
The Witcher is currently in development and stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Johdi May, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, and Millie Brady. Stay tuned for more details on a release date for the upcoming Netflix series.
