‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ has reportedly sold a whopping $20-$25 million in pre-sale tickets, that's more than early sales earned by ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Deadpool,’ so the money is certainly doing the talking when we say Marvel fans can’t wait to see Batman and Superman come to blows. In a new interview, Henry Cavill, who reprises his role as the Man of Steel, opened up about the influence on his portrayal of Clark Kent.
“It’s more the Clark Kent from the comic books as opposed to the Richard Donner, Christopher Reeve version of Clark Kent,” Cavill told inSing. “While that character is very much beloved, I feel that this Clark is more in line with that whose a journalist. He’s a reporter. There’s less of that light touch, less of that comedic touch to his performance or his presentation to the world. For Clark, there are very serious issues. Certainly, in this movie, he’s trying to get Perry to say, ‘Look, this Batman guy is a bad guy! Let me tell the story about him!’ He’s trying to use his position as a reporter to make things better without having to resort to the cape. It’s interesting to see. There’s a more serious tone. There’s more presence of a place of importance as a journalist.”
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metrpolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with each other, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger that it has ever known before. ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ arriving March 25, also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ben Affleck as Batman.
