Are we going to see fifty shades of Henry Cavill?!

The hunky actor began being at the center of speculation that he was going to join the cast for the highly anticipated sequel for Fifty Shades of Grey recently, and since nothing has been confirmed or denied, E! News wanted to set the record straight.

So while chatting with Cavill and his co-star Armie Hammer for their upcoming film Man From U.N.C.L.E in London, we decided to ask the blue-eyed star if there's any truth to the reports swirling on the Internet, and his answer only fueled the fire some more.

"Basically what I can say is I can't say anything about it right now," Cavill responded. So yes, he played coy, but he didn't say no!

And before you freak out, the Man of Steel star isn't going to replace Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. Instead, Cavill has been rumored to play Anastasia Steele's (Dakota Johnson) boss in the second installment of the erotic adaptation, Jack Hyde.

Hyde, who works at the publishing house Anastasia works at, is "described as a man with with sensual blues eyes that can pierce your heart." Yep, we'd say Henry fits the bill there.

We might have to wait a bit longer to find out if we'll see Cavill join the cast on the big screen, but until then, we can see him strut his stuff for the Guy Ritchie flick, where he plays CIA agent Napoleon Solo. The film focuses on a mysterious criminal organization who plans to use nuclear weapons and technology to upset the fragile balance of power between the United States and Soviet Union.

"I think that's the nature of the movie, it doesn't take itself too seriously," the actor tells us. "Despite there's a serious undertone and it is during the Cold War and they're fighting world terrorism, but there's always something going on to make it lighter and more enjoyable to watch."
