So it’s no surprise that so far in the who’s hotter showdown between Superman and Batman, Mr. Cavill takes the cake.
On Thursday morning, Warner Bros. unleashed the first official image of Cavill as his superhero character from the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“We’ve both created this guy and we can push him around a little bit,” according to Snyder. “The more time I spend with Henry, the more he’s Superman to me.”
As for Batman, Snyder says he didn’t feel the need to re-introduce and re-invent the superhero.
“It’s cooler to see a crusty old Batman beating the snot out of guys,” he says.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently in production in Detroit. The film, also starring Amy Adams, Gal Gadot (as Wonder Woman!), Laurence Fishburne, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Jeremy Irons and Holly Hunter opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.
