Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is now in theaters, and the reviews are already pouring in from Batman fans who have seen advanced or early showings. So far, the reviews are between good and mixed. Batman v Superman fans should be weary when heading to IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, and other review sites, because a certain god-like superhero might be viewing those potentially unfavorable reviews. According to Comicbook, Henry Cavill likes to creep and lurk amongst fans on message boards.
“I [sneak onto fan message boards] all the time. I never comment because commenting is adding fire to the arguments….I enjoy watching it.”
Cavill’s activities are not worthy of a Lifetime movie, but it would behoove Batman v Superman fans to be aware that Superman could be in the room at any time. Ben Affleck seems to only discuss Batman business in interviews, like his opinion on the title of Zack Snyder’s film.
“Batman’s the most interesting superhero because he’s the most human, he’s the most like us. [The title is] counter-intuitive because they’re both good guys, A, and B, how could Batman really fight Superman, because Superman’s an alien and way stronger and invulnerable?”
Sadly, for any on Batman’s side of this DC Comics street fight, Affleck would appear to have chosen sides. However, despite playing Batman in Batman v Superman, he doesn’t really seem to be on the Dark Knight’s side.
“If you were to have a straight Batman versus Superman punch-up, we all know who’d win.”
Batman v Superman’s Ben Affleck is not the only person who has taken a side in the DC Comics movie matchup. Henry Cavill’s former girlfriend and current Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco has weighed in on the popular replacement for Team Edward versus Team Jacob.
When asked, Kaley Cuoco was direct with her answer, saying, “I think Batman would win.”
Perhaps it’s sour grapes separating her from Team Superman, or maybe she just loves the Batcave, the Batmobile, and all that makes the Dark Knight cool. According to DCComicsMovie, actress Viola Davis explained why she chose Team Batman.
“…It’s the mask. It’s the muscles. It’s the car. Come on, it’s the Batmobile. The Batcave! Batman, man…”
Batman v Superman, a film has certainly caused rivalries amongst fans, and many already know how this match-up will turn out. However, people watch the film for the spectacle. Also, fans watch it for the Dawn of Justice aspect, as it is jump-starting Warner Bros.’ Justice League. Speaking of the Justice League, there is one member who has not been spoken of very much, besides the Green Arrow. The Flash, Aquaman, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are all slated to have some kind of appearance in Batman v Superman, but not the Green Lantern.
Batman v Superman’s Christina Wren is interested in a role in the upcoming DC Comics film Green Lantern Corps. DC Comics and Warner Bros. are working on a reboot of the Ryan Reynolds-led flop, which will lead up to the green-clad, special ring-wearing Justice Leaguer joining the rest of the team.
“Yes! Yes! Like, absolutely! I mean, super-huge fan. Would die to be a superhero. My whole childhood growing up, I wanted to be a superhero and we didn’t really have the female superheroes who were in the limelight at the time… To get to grow up and do that would be really a dream come true, but I’m waiting as much as anyone else.”
Wren plays Carrie Ferris in Batman v Superman, which sounds suspiciously similar to the name of Green Lantern Hal Jordan’s love interest Carol Ferris. Batman v Superman is out today, so fans will have a chance to see how Wren does in the film long before Green Lantern Corps comes out in 2020.
