First Look At Henry Cavill In Batman V Superman
Clark Kent's on duty for Dawn Of Justice

30 June 2014  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund

Usually on a film as big and as anticipated as Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, the first look at one of the characters is either a sneaky pap set pic or an official image put out by the studio (as with Ben Affleck’s Batman). But for Henry Cavill in character as Clark Kent, the floor has been ceded to the Royal Marines Charitable Trust, of which Cavill is a supporter, to show the initial image of the actor in his Clark Kent garb.

The Trust is an organization that supports serving and retired Marines and their families, and with Cavill’s connection, the studio allowed them to make the reveal.

Sure, it’s not the first look at Supes and Bats (and Wonder Woman, and whoever else will show up in the superhero-stuffed sequel) together, but it’s something.

Batman V Superman, of course, picks up the story amid the fallout from Man Of Steel as the likes of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) figure out how to exploit paranoia about Earth’s newly discovered alien adopted son, while Bruce Wayne (Affleck) is also interested in his motives.

The film will feature returning Steel cast members Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, with Gal Gadot aboard as Wonder Woman alongside Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, Jeremy Irons, Tao Okamoto, Ray Fisher, Scott McNairy and Callan Mulvey. Zack Snyder is busy cranking the cameras now, and the film will be out in the UK on April 29, 2016.

Charm school needed for Mr Cavill
I enjoyed the action in Man of Steel and Henry Cavill certainly looks the part;but the guy has zero charisma. He is so tedious whenever he opens his mouth. I remember as a child how amazing I thought Superman 2 was; I just wished the action was more well....super. We have that now and it is phenomenal, but I will return to Superman 2 many times in my life. Man of Steel I will not! Therein lies the problem with Man of Steel, Henry Cavill has not an ounce of the charisma Christopher Reeve had. More

RE: Wake Up, Supes!
L: BenTramer Henry Cavill had an astonishing bod for Man of Steel but there was none of the nuance or humour or charm of the Christopher Reeve Superman movies. It was a humourless bore. Cavill had better deliver something more or this is going to be a disaster. Ben Afffeck didn't exactly do a great job with Daredevil and he's not Mr Charisma. t also had none of the camp or silly time travel powers of the Christopher Reeve Superman movies. More

Doing something for real-life supermen
Hated Man of Steel, but all credit to Mr Cavill for his support for the such a good cause! More
