Henry Cavill Would Love To See A Superman/Batman Meeting On The Big Screen

Holy Rusted Metal Batman!


Fans have longed to see Superman and Batman team up in live-action on the big screen for a long time but if our new Man of Steel Henry Cavill had his way, we’d see them fight first. 

The actor did an interview with SFX in which he discussed the classic DC Comics characters and how they don’t necessarily always get along.

“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,” he told SFX. “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.”

But will it ever come to pass?

“Who knows,” he said. “I’m sure there’s all sorts of ideas being thrown around at Warner Bros right now.”

The only projects we’ve heard of lately are Guillermo del Toro’s magical Justice League project and the often-rumored Justice League film. Do you think we’ll see Superman and Batman together anytime soon?
