Henry Cavill said that “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will have direct references to “Man of Steel.” When asked by Uproxx whether the film refers to the events of Man of Steel,” Cavill said: “You’ll see a lot of that.”
He also explained a scene shown in the film’s trailer, which directly relates to “Man of Steel.” “That’s when Zod loses his mind and can’t control his heat vision and blasts everything out,” he said about the scene where building is shown ripping apart.
“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” has been set after the Zod creates destruction in Metropolis in “Man of Steel.” It is the destruction, which will reportedly trigger Batman to travel to Metropolis to keep Superman in check. One of his buildings will be destroyed in the event.
Ben Affleck, who plays Batman, has said in his previous interview to Entertainment Weekly that “One of the things I liked was Zack’s (Snyder) idea of showing accountability and the consequences of violence and seeing that there are real people in those buildings. And in fact, one of those buildings was Bruce Wayne’s building so he knew people who died in that Black Zero event.”
Snyder has directed the film from the screenplay by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer. It also stars Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot, who will play Wonder Woman in the film.
Jason Momoa will also be seen in a cameo as Aquaman and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. Hans Zimmer has supplied the music and Larry Fong has done the cinematography.
The film will release on March 25, 2016 in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
