The Rivalry Between Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill Is Getting All Too Real on the Set of ‘Batman v Superman’

Boys will be boys.

Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are using method acting tactics as a behind-the-scenes approach to perfect their their rivaled roles in Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeAffleck posted videos of the pranks that he plotted on Cavill to remind him that Batman will prevail over Superman to his Instagram and Facebook accounts. The actor redecorated Cavill’s trailer with Batman memorabilia and very maturely scribbled some glasses onto his face on a poster.


Later, Cavill went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to share the truth about his relationship with Affleck to the general public. When Kimmel asked him if their beef was a result of their roles, Cavill replied very frankly.

“No, I just didn’t like him,” Cavill joked. “Genuine dislike. You know, that happens. Then you become lovers, and make videos with each other.”
