‘Batman V Superman’: Dawn of Justice – First Look at Henry Cavill as Man of Steel

SM_DebutTwo months after Ben Affleck’s Batman was unveiled on Twitter, Warner Bros. Pictures has today released the first photo of Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel.

Donning the infamous but muted blue suit and red cape, Cavill looks angry and not only at the rain pounding the pavement.

Not set for release until Spring 2016, initial photography sets a dark tone for Zack Snyder’s follow up to 2013’s Man of Steel. The “V” in the title hints at an epic face off between two of DC Comics’ best-known characters.

However, in an interview with USA Today, Snyder skilfully dodged questions about how the pair’s relationship unfolds. “Suffice it to say there is a ‘v’ in between their names,” Snyder said.

He cryptically added that having the “v” instead of “vs.” is a way “to keep it from being a straight ‘versus’ movie, in the most subtle way.”

Filming of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has kicked off in Detroit, but it is not yet in full swing. Cavill and Affleck have only shot a few scenes together and Gal Gadot is still waiting to get in on the action as the big screen’s first Wonder Woman.


Jesse Eisenberg will also star as everyone’s favourite bald super villain Lex Luthor, and Jeremy Irons will play Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler Alfred.

Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Scoot McNairy and Tao Okamoto are also on the cast list, alongside returning Man of Steel stars Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release on the 29th April 2016 in the UK and 6th May 2016 in the US.

About Tanita Cross

Tanita has an unhealthy obsession with the two "F"s - film and food. An aspiring journalist, she has left a rather lucrative career in PR to become a penniless writer à la Ewan McGregor in Moulin Rouge. Her taste in film is a hodge-podge of genres that baffles most of her fellow cinephiles. From musicals, to mysteries and everything in between, Tanita will watch just about anything - provided it doesn't star Paris Hilton (lie: she loved the 2005 House of Wax remake). Her favourite films include Goodfellas, Amélie and Finding Nemo. Her favourite meal is (any kind of) curry.
