DC Studios has received unrelenting criticism from fans over the past few weeks, and it appears that the flames are still burning.
After Henry Cavill announced his regrettable departure from the Superman franchise, fans first vented their wrath on the studio executives. Again. However, he will be permanently gone this time. Then came the shocking information about Dwayne Johnson’s character Black Adam’s gloomy destiny. People are unsure of what to trust, despite The Rock’s assurances to fans that the lack of a Black Adam 2 wouldn’t spell the end of his career in the DC Universe.
It’s important to note that all of the aforementioned developments began as, essentially, hearsay and conjecture. And now, a number of brand-new allegations have begun to circulate online, alleging that the Man of Steel actor sacked his manager long ago, before he left DC.

However, according to new reports, the Dawn of Justice star had taken a serious course of action way before he learned about his future, or lack thereof, at DC. The Puck‘s Matt Belloni claimed that Cavill, 39, dismissed his manager, Dany Garcia, months before the DC chiefs dropped him as Superman. The rumors further stated that Cavill also went ahead to sever his ties with William Morris Entertainment, the agency that represented him.

Following the rumors about Cavill firing Garcia long before his DCU exit, Johnson tweeted his take on the matter, claiming that it was “100% not true.”
