Henry Cavill candidly launches that he believes Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is a Batman movie. The DCEU’s inaugural star, the actor started Warner Bros.’ superhero firm in 2013 through Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.
Three years post, he worked with the filmmaker once again for the team-up film that also established the launch of Ben Affleck as the universe’s Caped Crusader.
All three of them united again in Justice League and thought of the events that preceded that movie; the chances are that it is the last time enthusiasts will discern them all together – at the most for a DC project.
Batman V Superman was one of them, if not the most polarising movies in recent memory. While some enthusiasts praised Snyder’s famous take on two of the most famous superheroes ever, others were not exactly thrilled with most of his creative choices.
Most of these things were regarding Superman, who was uniquely pessimistic and brooding in the film. As for Cavill, he believes that the project was designed to highlight Batman more than anything else.
Seeing back at his journey as Superman on the considerable screen thus distant, Cavill candidly gives his thoughts on his prior three DCEU films in a recent interview with Men’s Health.
While he declared he would not “change anything” with Man of Steel (another divisive movie), he has some lovely comments on his verge two outings as the Last Son of Krypton.
He declares that Batman V Superman is “very much a Batman film” including that the “realm of darkness is huge for a Batman film.”
Justice League, on the contrary, simply “did not work.” Snyder and Affleck are definitely out of the DCEU, while Cavill’s fate as Superman holds in the balance. The actor is presently busy with Netflix’s The Witcher, where he acts as the title character, Geralt of Rivia.
