Henry Cavill recently revealed that as Superman he may avoid a direct fight with anyone in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” During his appearance Sunday at the GQ Style and Dunhill party in London, he said that Superman would be reluctant to get involved in a physical confrontation.
“Superman wouldn’t get into a cage fight with just anyone. Imagine, you wouldn’t get into a fight with someone if they hit you and you didn’t feel it, barely registered it. Superman wouldn’t even notice; he’s not quick to engage,” Cavill told WWD.
According to Web speculation, Cavill is referring to a fight with Ben Affleck’s Batman, and the Man of Steel will reportedly do his best to avoid going head-to-head with the Caped Crusader.
“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will see Batman traveling to Gotham City to take on Superman. They will be shown confronting each other but a new threat will arrive that will put mankind in a great danger.
Cavill also spoke about the film in an interview with Empire Magazine. He described the forthcoming film as a standalone adventure that is not linked to previous Superman films.
“This is Batman versus Superman, so it's a separate entity altogether," he said. "It is expanding upon the universe that was kicked off by 'Man Of Steel.' But, as it stands, it's definitely an introduction of the Batman character and, ultimately, the introduction of the Justice League films,” he said.
Zack Snyder has directed the film from a script by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are the producers. Other cast members include Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Jason Momoa and Gal Gadot. “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” opens March 25, 2016.
