Henry Cavill, the man who is the Man of Steel, thinks a film that teams Superman and Batman is a good idea.
Fans of comics and movies alike have, for years, pined for a World's Finest-type film teaming the Man of Tomorrow and the Dark Knight. Rights issues and the lack of filmmakers with willpower enough to see the project done have kept Superman and Batman apart on the big screen.
Thursday Crave's SuperHeroHype website posted part of an interview with Cavill in which he speaks of his desire to be part of that team-up.
“I think it would be really interesting with the age-old Batman/Superman conflict, because they are two different sides of the same coin and their methods are entirely different. And I think it would actually make for an interesting story as to why, first of all, they were going head to head and how. I think that would make a great story.”
With the star of what is promising to be one of the best movies of the year now speaking publicly about putting Batman and Superman together on the silver screen, the idea may get a lot more lift. we'll have to wait and see if some intrepid director takes up the challenge. (Looking at you Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan.)
