In an extended online interview with Entertainment Weekly, Henry Cavill explained that he doesn’t consider Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to be a Superman sequel. “As far as the individual character is concerned, this is not a Superman sequel,” says Cavill. “It’s more of an introduction to Batman, an opening to Justice League, and an expansion of the world that was created in Man of Steel.”
But most importantly, Cavill admitted what everyone already knows — most people prefer Batman over Superman.
“There’s plenty of time for individual Superman sequels,” the actor says. “He’s a tough character to tell. People like the darker vigilante. I think it speaks to the human psyche more easily rather than the god-like being that we can’t really understand. Once we have a more expansive universe we can delve more into the character of Superman and hopefully tell more stories.”
