‘Man of Steel’ Henry Cavill Dejects ‘Batman v. Superman’ Split Movie Rumors

The premiere of “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is coming to a close with just a year more of anticipation, but some sources and rumors revealed that such narrative will be split into two. One of the main stars of the film, Henry Cavill, “The Man of Steel,” says his piece and negates the rumors. Read on for more details to this scoop.

Last week, the worldwide entertainment central got the slight information that the “Batman v. Superman” movie will be split into two. As the rumors spread, they’ve suggested the progress of the franchise that suggested on Oct. 23, 2015, “Part 1: Enter the Knight” will premiere and will be followed by “Part 2: Dawn of Justice” on March 25, 2016. The main source for this entire racket was due to a supposed image leak that got spread vastly as soon as it hit the web. Is there any possibility to such an extension? Main star of the franchise — Henry Cavill exclaims that there is none.


Cinema Blend featured that Henry Cavill, the actor who plays as the Man of Steel in the movie, was the main person to shot down the split-movie issue of the “Batman v. Superman” film. There are no actual statement from the actor himself, but he did express it nonhesitantly when he was asked during the BAFTA Tea at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, California. In addition to his negation of the widespread issue, he adds the film is pushing through with its release on 2016.

In the speculation posted by Screen Rant, it’s only right that the film stays intact and not divided into two as the second would prove to lack enough cinematic elements to be pursued into one effective narrative. They highlighted Bad Ass Digest’s David Faraci, who got a glimpse of one of the film’s actual drafts. Of which he clearly states that it would be difficult to supplement the second half with as much important points as the first one.

“There’s so much action in the second half as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman battle Doomsday in Metropolis and Gotham that you’d end up with two very, very lopsided movies. It works as an escalation in the full script, but without major additions it seems limp,” Faraci explained.

The dejection of the story may’ve come from the Man of Steel himself, but no official statements were heard just yet from the prime studio company — Warner Bros. With that, people who are hoping for the film to be split in half can remain hopeful. For now, “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is set to hit the theaters on March 25, 2016.

That concludes our scoop regarding Henry Cavill dejecting the “Batman v. Superman” two-part movie. Continue visiting Movie News Guide (MNG) for more movie updates.
