There has been a lot of excitement surrounding the DC Cinematic Universe, with Warner Bros. and DC really upping their game of late, as they aim to compete with the impressive movies that Marvel have been bringing us. The next DC movie to hit the big screen will be the eagerly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which has had a lot of rumours surrounding it.
A lot of fans have been referring to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as a Man of Steel sequel, since it follows on from the 2013 movie, but it seems that this is actually not the case. Actor Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in the DC Cinematic Universe, has stated that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is far from being a Man of Steel sequel.
Cavill was in Las Vegas for the Warner Bros. CinemaCon, when he explained, "I've only seen a little bit of ADR stuff, but that's it, and that wasn't even in color. I'm hoping to see it [the whole movie] some time this year, for a friends and family screening or something. But I really know nothing about what the finished product looks like."
He added, "I wouldn't call this a Superman sequel. This is Batman versus Superman, so it's a separate entity altogether. It's introducing the Batman character, and expanding upon this universe, which was kicked off by 'Man of Steel'. It's an introduction to the [Batman] character, and ultimately an introduction to 'Justice League.'"
Either way, we cannot wait to see how this movie all comes together and how the new characters will be introduced in the movie. We still have a long wait ahead of us though, as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice does not open until March 25, 2016 in both the US and the UK.
