On Saturday, Yahoo! hosted a live Q&A with director Zack Snyder and actors Henry Cavill and Amy Adams in advance of this Tuesday’s release of Man of Steel on Blu-ray and DVD. In the 75 minute event, hosted by director, host, and world-renowned comic book aficionado Kevin Smith, all sorts of questions were posed to the makers of the movie, but the thing on everybody’s minds and lips and keyboards was, of course, news about Batman vs Superman, or whatever that movie ends up being called.
It will, as we know, feature Cavill returning as the Last Son of Krypton and Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader, and is slated for a 2015 release, but what nobody knew was what the story would be, exactly, nor how the two characters would interact. It seems, according to Snyder, the two characters will not get on like gangbusters right away. “The fun of the idea is to be able to play with that relationship,” he said “Whether they fight and become friends, or whether they’re friends and they fight…. Of course, some physical conflicts [will be involved].”
He also tells us that Lex Luthor will be involved in the proceedings and that he’ll relish drawing the public’s attention to the “alien” nature of Superman. Also discussed was the highly controversial choice in Man of Steel for Superman to [SPOILERS] kill General Zod at the end. Snyder says that this decision will factor heavily in the follow up. So calm down everyone who are as up in arms as people can be.
