The title of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice alone suggests that Batman (Ben Affleck) will engage in battle with Superman (Henry Cavill). Of course, we haven't seen any footage of these heroic forces colliding, but the first trailer surely implied that there is no love lost between the two, in that epic rooftop stare-down. During a new interview, however, Henry Cavill himself revealed that Superman just doesn't get into a fight with anyone, teasing that there may not be the epic fight fans have come to expect.
"Superman wouldn't get into a cage fight with just anyone. Imagine, you wouldn't get into a fight with someone if they hit you and you didn't feel it, barely registered it. Superman wouldn't even notice; he's not quick to engage."
While it's true that Batman is just a mere mortal, with no super powers at his disposal, his skills certainly shouldn't be taken lightly. Many have wondered how Batman would even stand a chance against the Man of Steel, since his gadgets would likely have no impact on Kal-El, but there was an unconfirmed report last month that revealed one of Batman's weapons is a spear laced with Kryptonite. It is assumed that Superman isn't fully aware of what Kryptonite is at this point, so we'll have to wait and see how he reacts to the Kryptonite, assuming that it does surface in the story.
It seems likely that Henry Cavill is only referencing Superman's tendency to avoid a fight if at all possible, and not teasing the lack of a showdown between both heroes. Fans who attended the IMAX trailer screening in April were treated to an additional scene that has not yet been released, showcasing both heroes fighting in a warehouse, footage that will hopefully be included in the second trailer. What do you think about Henry Cavill's comments?
