It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman, back on the market! And apparently he's been there for some time.

The Tudors and Immortals actor Henry Cavill and his ex-girlfriend, champion show jumper Ellen Whitaker, have ended their engagement.

"There was no fallout," a source told Us Weekly of the split. "They just both agreed it wasn't working. ... They broke up three months ago."

Next summer, the British actor will be seen as Clark Kent/Superman in Man of Steel, opposite Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Russell Crowe as Jor-El.

It’s never a happy occasion when a couple breaks up, but how many times have we read stories like this about rising stars? He's so busy with his film career — next on his list is The Great Wall, about The Great Wall of China — that they probably didn't spend that much time together.

Besides, now he can date you. That's what you're thinking, isn't it? (Admit it!)
