Henry Cavill: ‘Batman v Superman’ Won’t Be Split Into Two Films

An Internet rumor that spread last week about Warner Bros. splitting “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” into two films turned out to be false. Henry Cavill, who plays Superman, confirmed over the weekend to Variety that the tentpole sequel directed by Zack Snyder will be released as one film.

Cavill added that Ben Affleck makes a “great” Batman. But he said he wasn’t injured in any of their fight scenes. “Are you kidding?” Cavill joked at the BAFTA tea at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. “I’m the Man of Steel.”

When asked if “Batman v Superman” would be more epic than Marvel’s “The Avengers,” he replied: “You’ll see.”

“Batman v Superman” is scheduled to open on March 25, 2016.
