Henry Cavill’s journey as the “Man of Steel” continues with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Though the centerpiece of the film deals with the conflict between Superman (Cavill) and the Caped Crusader (Ben Affleck), the pair must also deal with the obviously bigger threat of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg).
“For me, this very much felt like the development of Superman, of the character we know and love from the comic books,” said Cavill. “We’re still not there yet. (Looking at) the guy growing up – he’s become this “super man” after discovering he was Kal-El in the first movie and now he’s facing off against this second guy and it’s a tough outing for him because it’s against a psychological enemy, as opposed to a physical enemy like Zod (Michael Shannon).”
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, co-starring Gal Gadot and Diane Lane, is now playing nationwide.
