Henry Cavill Discusses His Role In ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’

While Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel was heavily criticized for its climatic fight scene, which led to the destruction of Metropolis, some people tend to forget that Clark wasn’t experienced when he went up against Zod, which means that he couldn’t really control his powers in order to prevent some of the damage. Obviously, that has changed now, since a lot of time has passed between the events of that movie and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will be hitting theaters this March. 

The latest issue of Empire, which is packed with new details about the movie, reveals that Clark is now living with Lois Lane in Metropolis, where he works as a journalist at the Daily Planet and according to Henry Cavill himself, he has now embraced his powers to the fullest. Here’s what he had to say: 

He’s more used to this gig, doing his best to save as many lives as he can. He is no longer frantic. He’s no longer a wet behind the ears kind of superhero.

Obviously, Clark isn’t really a big supporter of Batman’s methods and, as some of the recent trailers have suggested, he will be using his newly learned skills as journalist in order to track him down and expose him. That will probably be how the two heroes are going to meet and eventually duke it out, but Cavill seems pretty confident that he’s going to win:  

He doesn’t agree with his form of justice. For this farm boy, who tries to do things the right way, justice at any cost is not something he can come to terms with. It’s not about one on one. Of course Superman is going to win. But it’s deeper than that. It’s more that these two great powers exist and are actually trying to achieve the same thing, but in such different way…

It also seems that we’re going to see a lot more of Clark Kent this time, so the actor went on to talk about the different characters traits between him and Superman, which according to Cavill, aren’t all that many:

He is the human side of the character, but there is often this idea that Clark and Superman must be so different. He can only get away with wearing the glasses so much. If he’s drawing attention to himself by being clumsy, that’s not going to work.
