According to Yahoo Movies on Sunday, director Zack Snyder of "Man of Steel" and the future "Batman vs. Superman" film spoke about the three main characters heading off the film. He also revealed that though the trifecta of Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot has as of yet to be seen in the costumes, stand-ins had tried them on and Snyder truly spoke highly of their designs.

Snyder himself found it amazing seeing the trio of costumes together in a shot and was rather awestruck thinking that seeing these characters all at once in a film is rather epic. The director also explained how the pop culture of seeing such a trio for the first time just pops out. Snyder describes how he has even kept the first photo as an archive just in case it may be "worth something".

Considering the inherent violence in "Man of Steel" Snyder stated he will not be holding back when it comes to violence in the sequel. One may wonder with Superman breaking the neck of his enemy to save an innocent family from General Zod's eye beams fans may tend to speculate how violent will the next movie would be. Snyder explained that fans are still hung up on the Christopher Reeve version of the do-gooder and as of yet to realize that in the comic books he's done all kinds of necessary killing.

Snyder felt that fans took it personally when making the film too seemingly real and violent for what they were expecting. In fact, he had compared it to "Watchmen" where people actually do die, suffer tragedy, and hardships of consequences. Some may have thought of it as an innocent lost in this case, but there has been a trend of drama when it comes to getting the audience to "feel" something while immersing themselves into a story they can relate to.

"Batman vs. Superman" is scheduled to be released in conjunction with "Captain America 3" on May 6, 2016.
