With Zack Snyder's upcoming DC Comics film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" hitting theaters in March, it has been revealed that both Superman and Batman have changed in the forthcoming superhero film.
The Man of Steel had changed for the better, according to Cinema Blend. As per the publication, Superman's role as the Earth's protector is followed in Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," after the events in Snyder's 2013 film "Man of Steel." The publication noted that the "Man of Steel" storyline featured an inexperienced Superman while battling Zod and protecting Earth's inhabitants.
Henry Cavill, who is playing Superman's role in Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," has shared his thoughts on his role as the Man of Steel. In his interview with Empire (via WhatCulture), Cavill said that Superman was more used to do the "gig," doing his best to save as many lives as he could, and he was no longer frantic.
For Cavill, Superman was no longer a "wet behind the ears" kind of superhero. It is assumed from the events in "Man of Steel" that the superhero would always have the moral code he got from his parents on Earth, and this leads to a responsibility to utilize his superpowers to help mankind.
On the other hand, producer Charles Roven, who plays Batman in the film, also said that the Dark Knight has undergone some changes in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." In his interview with Empire, Roven said that Batman was not giving people a chance, adding that the superhero was more than a vigilante.
Roven also mentioned that Batman was older, and he had seen the worst of what man could do, adding that he had been darkened by it. He also said that the Dark Knight was tougher and angrier and he had still lost those that were near and dear to him.
For Roven, Batman had become not only the cop, but he had also become the "jury and executioner."
According to Screen Rant, Snyder's take on Batman would be a more ruthless one than any other version of the character from the previous "Batman" and "Superman" films. While Bruce Wayne had been known to be struggling when it comes to killing somebody, Roven's term "executioner" highly suggests the possibility that the Caped Crusader is going to kill in the film.
"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" serves as the foundation that will lead to the rise of the superhero team Justice League. Aside from Cavill and Affleck, the film also stars Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Jesse Eisenberg, and Amy Lane, among others.
Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is set to premiere in theaters in the United States on Mar. 25.
