Henry Cavill, who plays Superman (Clark Kent) in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” recently spoke about the future plans of Warner Bros.  The actor said that the production house has plans to expand the DC universe.

“There’s a big plan in place at WB for the whole DC franchise. So, all of this stuff ties in. They’re not thinking from movie to movie, they’re thinking from a big tent pole type thing and each story has its own story, which is attached to the major issue. Yeah, there’s a big plan,” Cavill said.

He also hinted that there are lot of scenes in the film which have direct reference to “Man of Steel.” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” will be followed by a Justice League film to expand the DC universe. The film will be the big screen adaptation of DC comics superhero team.

"It will be a further expansion of this universe. Superman vs Batman will lead into Justice League,” Greg Silverman, Warner Bros' president of worldwide production, said.

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which is scheduled to be released on March 25, will see Batman and Superman indulge in a fight. Batman will travel to Metropolis and will confront Superman as he thinks the latter should be kept in the check.

The film also stars Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot. Zack Snyder has directed the film from the screenplay by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer.
