‘Batman V Superman’: Don’t Call It A Sequel, But Will ‘Man Of Steel’ Have One? Henry Cavill Explains

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been DC Comics’, and Warner Bros.’, most talked about upcoming comicbook film. At one point, there was an inquiry as to whether it was a Man Of Steel sequel, but that has already been debunked.

According to Comicbook, Henry Cavill, aka Superman himself, has confirmed yet again that Batman v Superman is not a Man of Steel sequel, and he also clued DC Comics and Superman fans as to what the new Batman and Superman film is about.

“As far as the individual character is concerned, this is not a Superman sequel. It’s more of an introduction to Batman, an opening to Justice League, and an expansion of the world that was created in Man of Steel.”

So, it is very vague, but Cavill did reaffirm what fans already know. Ben Affleck’s Batman is being introduced, and “Dawn of Justice” means they are giving an introduction for the future Justice League film. Though Batman v Superman is not a Superman sequel, it will expand on the Man of Steel film. According to Entertainment Weekly, Henry Cavill explained that a true Superman sequel will not come until after the DC Comics cinematic universe is expanded, but there could be multiple sequels.

“He’s a tough character to tell. People like the darker vigilante. I think it speaks to the human psyche more easily rather than the god-like being that we can’t really understand. Once we have a more expansive universe we can delve more into the character of Superman and hopefully tell more stories.”

Unlike the Superman films of yesteryear, more specifically Superman Returns, Henry Cavill appears to be playing the red and blue costumed hero for the forseeable future of the DC cinematic universe.

Batman and Superman are not the only Justice Leaguers to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to the Inquisitr, reports surfaced that a movie version of the Flash will have a small role, and it is already widely known that Aquaman and Wonder Woman will make some kind of appearance in the film. After all, as Henry Cavill pointed out, it is an opening for the Justice league. Also, it is called “Dawn of Justice.”

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will obviously also have the newest Batman starring in it, and Ben Affleck has been considered a questionable choice up to this point. Though, many other have also come under scrutiny.

It remains to be seen whether Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will become the hit Warner Bros. is banking on, and for Superman fans and Henry Cavill’s career, they also might be banking on it for more Superman sequels.
