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.
