A person familiar with Warner Bros.’ plans for its DC Comics films says there are no current prospects for another “Superman” film starring Henry Cavill.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Warner Bros. issued a statement Wednesday saying it hasn’t decided on Cavill’s return. Warner Bros. stressed it had a great relationship with Cavill and that remains unchanged. The statement was issued after a Hollywood Reporter article said Cavill’s tenure as the Man of Steel appeared to be ending.

Warner Bros. is in the midst of remaking its DC Comics strategy following the fan and critical backlash to “Justice League” and “Batman v. Superman.” Cavill first played Superman in 2013’s “Man of Steel.”

Representatives for Cavill didn’t return messages Wednesday.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
