The hype surrounding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is ridiculous, and Henry Cavill, who plays Superman, is just laying it on thicker. Everything about it warrants speculation – from Zack Snyder directing, to Ben Affleck as Batman, to the inclusion of DC characters like Aquaman, to the creating of the DC Universe, the beginning of the Justice League film, and just Batman and Superman being on screen together.  And let’s face, it doesn’t matter what the critics think, this movie is going to make massive amounts of money.

During a recent interview with The Daily Mail, Cavill discussed the upcoming film:

“It’s Zack Snyder, so it’s going to be a visual spectacle and it’s cinematic history. We’re doing Batman and we’re doing Superman, and it’s all happening at the same time. So, fingers crossed it turns out to be as exciting as I think it is.”

If there’s one thing Snyder does amazingly, it’s visual spectacle. When asked if he had any advice for Ben Affleck, he said:

“Right. We’re talking about Ben Affleck here. I don’t need to give him any advice. The guy’s a legend. He does his own thing! He’s great. He’s fantastic.”

And, in a separate interview with The Anglophile Channel, Cavill was asked how many more years he wishes to play the character of Superman:

“I love the character. I love working with Warner Bros. and what they’re doing with it, and so fingers crossed I’ll be able to tell the story for many, many years to come.”

Good to know. Regardless of the problems some had with Man of Steel, most people agree that Cavill is a great Superman.

Batman v Superman is the beginning of Warner Bros. shared DC Cinematic Universe, with at least 12 films to be released until the year 2020, including a 2-part Justice League film, and a solo movie for each member of the team.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is set for a March 25th, 2016 release.
