The two main superheroes in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will not be seen in crossovers in “Suicide Squad” and the “Arrow” TV series, according to Henry Cavill and Stephen Amell. Meanwhile, Jesse Eisenberg talked about the popularity of the movie, and praised the writer Chris Terrio and director Zack Snyder.
According to a report by ComicBookMovie, Cavill was jokingly asked whether he was playing Wonder Woman in the forthcoming DC movie. The actor said that he was offered to play the role, but he in turn suggested that Gal Gadot should be given role because she has done a “great job.”
The actor is currently promoting his new movie “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” in which he plays the role of the protagonist Solo. Cavill’s fellow cast member Armie Hammer (Illya) was with him at the interview, who said that that Cavill would have “filled out that skirt well,” if he had been cast as Wonder Woman in “Batman v. Superman.”
“It’s a dream of mine,” Cavill responded.
Speaking to Metro, Cavill debunked rumors that Superman will be a part of “Suicide Squad” by apparently giving a “firm no” as a response. The actor, however, said that he may appear in the sequel.
Amell also talked about crossovers in an interview with ComicbookMovie and said that crossovers should not be forced. The actor said that it may be “tough” to bring Ben Affleck’s Batman character into his “Arrow” TV series, but added that it may be possible for the show to come up with their own version of the character, provided the studio approves.
“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2016 and Affleck is expected to reprise his role as Bruce in multiple movies. Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) told Collider that he had never been involved with a project like this where every trailer and image from the movie is analyzed to a large extent by the fans.
The actor said that the script of the movie is “phenomenal” and that the writer Terrio is “just brilliant.” The actor also praised director Snyder for being “visually, masterful.”
