Henry Cavill Reprises His Role As Superman In 'Dawn Of Justice'

July 5th, 2014 5:00pm EDT
Batman v. Superman
Zac Snyder teased us this past Spring with a sober, depressing photo of Batman as portrayed by Ben Affleck. Now, we have confirmation that Superman in the 2016 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' will indeed be played by Henry Cavill. Warner Bros released this picture yesterday from the set of Dawn of Justice.

While the tone of this picture isn't quite as somber as Ben Affleck's Bat-pic, it still has a decidedly dark feel to it. Cavill's Superman costume hasn't really undergone any radical changes, and the overall look and feel of the character remains much the same as it was in the l...

Batman and Superman
Man of Steel director Zack Snyder confirmed on Saturday that Superman and Batman will share the screen together in 2015.

The two certainly appeared to be fans of one another - Cavill had previously confessed he was a fan of...

Potential is usually a good start.  When he first came on the scene, Zach Snyder seemed to have all the makings of a director who would achieve greatness.  Problem is that almost every outing he’s helmed has shown that the eye candy director has a knack for creating killer sequences, but falls short on the full-length feature film scale.  In "Dawn of the Dead" the first ten minutes all but eclipse the rest of the film, "300" features battle sequences that squander the dull scenes of happenings at home, "Watchmen" begins with powerful picture-esk potential the film can’t live up to and even ...
