Henry Cavill Talks Lex Luthor And Cyborg In A Future DC Film


Promoting the Man of Steel home release, Henry Cavill has been talking to CBM about the nods and winks to other DC characters in Zack Snyder’s film.

The actor said, “On the extras on the Blu-ray, we’re going to get the opportunity to see Zack’s references to other aspects of the DC Universe. There’s one obvious one which is now particularly obvious because of our next installment, which is involving Batman as well. We see Bruce Wayne Enterprises on the satellite in space. We also see some references to LexCorp. I actually have no further knowledge of this next story, but there’s a good chance Lex is going to be introduced soon or at some stage.”


Cavill went on, “What really intrigued me was Dr. Emil Hamilton’s connection to S.T.A.R. Labs. Cyborg, I think, would make a wonderful character and an incredible bridge between both superhumans and humanity in a different way to Batman. So I don’t know where he’s going to come in or if he’s going to come in, but that’s the one I’m particularly excited about. Other references I’m not too sure on, but we’ll see where those lead. Those with keen eyes will see them.”

Next up for Superman, there’s Batman vs Superman, which is currently looking at a 17th July, 2015 release.

In terms of Man of Steel, released yesterday in the UK, find the Blu-ray review here.

  1. I enjoyed Superman (with some reservations), and wonder if you agree with my sentiment that it is perhaps a bit too soon to be bringing Batman into the fray (although I do look forward to SM2). As you mention, there are a number of villians that Henry Cavill must still face, and then there’s the possibility that the new Superman franchise may only run to three (four at most) films, as did Batman.

    I am still simmering with some disappointment at the abrupt end to the utterly brilliant Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale collaboration, and fail to see how Ben Affleck is suitably cast. Perhaps his role is a bit-part to Cavill’s, so okay then.


    • I completely agree on most of what you said. After Man of Steel, Zack Snyder himself said that the plan was to do a second Superman film before then looking towards a Justice League film or adding further DC characters. With Man of Steel not quite achieving what the WB were hoping for, it seems as if they panicked and added Batman. They can save face by still having it as another Man of Steel film, but Batman is there to draw in fans. It would’ve been great to see Superman struggling with the destruction of Metropolis and the death of Zod being on his hands; have him struggle on his own, in the Fortress of Solitude, questioning whether he is meant to be doing what his powers allow him.

      That said, I disagree on the Batfleck thing. To save me going into too much detail here, I’d just simply direct you to this post –
