With rumours of Henry Cavill's imminent departure from the 'Superman' franchise being reported by The Hollywood Reporter and other media outlets yesterday, it seemed that we've seen the last of the English actor in the iconic superhero role.

After watching his latest Instagram video, however, now we're not so sure.

Cavill posted a very strange clip of himself, wearing a 'Krypton Lifting Team' t-shirt and slowly raising a Superman figurine to the camera, with the post captioned 'Today was exciting #Superman'. He doesn't say anything and maintains a pretty stoic expression.

Is he being sarcastic? Is he laughing off the rumours and recommitting to the role? Can we please get a solid answer from Warner Bros. on the whole mess?
