Zod couldn't kill Superman. Because, Superman.

Clark had a little more experience with his superpowers, if not a lot. Zod had just discovered his, and was still learning how to control them. The learning curve for him was probably a little less steep because of his breeding, but still.

I reject the notion that Clark could have saved more people. He was kinda busy, what with being outnumbered and all. I equate the necksnapping scene with Kirk kicking Kruge off the ledge into the fiery abyss. "I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU!!!"

Then the reality of what Clark has just done hits, and the scream of anguish.

He had never faced death, "Not like this."

None of us can say what we would do when faced with an impossible situation. This was Clark's Kobayashi Maru.

A little more experience with his superpowers yes, but Zod was a trained soldier, so quickly gained the upper hand. And Zod didn't want to rule Earth - he wanted to bring back Krypton. That was his entire purpose.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Looks like I was right. WB is allegedly developing a Batman solo film starring Ben Affleck (currently titled The Batman) for summer 2019.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I'm guessing the only reason they're holding off that long is because Affleck's schedule is already too full to start any earlier.

If rumors are to be believed, Affleck is currently shooting Batman vs. Superman and Justice League back-to-back. At some point, Affleck is suppose to do Live By Night which is slated for October 2016.

Affleck will probably direct Live By Night sometime next year or early 2016 after he finishes his Batman commitments.

According to the report, WB would develop a script for a solo Batman movie so Affleck could do it after Live By Night, so probably sometime in 2017 or 2018 for a summer 2019 release. I'm assuming in-between all of this Affleck will want a break.

So if you factor in all of those components 2019/2020 makes a lot of sense.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

^Which could potentially make for a really interesting film. Affleck was chosen partly because he's a little older, and he'll be older still by the time he gets his own solo film. We've seen movies about a young Batman before. I think it would be pretty cool to see a movie about an older Batman.

Also, Affleck will presumably be in a Justice League sequel.

First image of Henry Cavil as Clark Kent in DoJ.



Definitely looks like he's inspired by the John Byrne era Clark look. No blue suit from the Silver Age.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

No glasses, though! Is this a Smallville situation, meaning the actor is too vain to wear glasses? Or maybe Zack Snyder thinks glasses aren't "cool" enough for this new (bland) version of Clark Kent? Or maybe Cavill just took them off for the photo...

The last one most likely. Recall Clark wore glasses at the end of MOS. To the actor (Henry) the glasses are just a prop. He probably didn't wear them because they're just lenses in a frame.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Yeah the costume designer tweeted that this will be his look (minus the glasses), so clearly Cavill just took them off for the photo.

Whatever the case, after all the talk and pictures of other characters in this film, it's finally nice to see Cavill's Clark again.

Yeah he is.

I've always thought he looked like Tim Olyphant and Matt Bomer's love child.

He really does in that picture.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Do we have a close-up on those logos, wordmarks, etc. on the shirt he's holding up?

^ The shirt has nothing to do with the movie. It's for some kind of charity that Cavill supports.
