Batman V Superman Set Photo Teases Henry Cavill as Clark Kent

Clark Kent Batman V Superman Henry Cavill

As the shared DC Entertainment movie universe begins to take shape ahead of a high profile Justice League team-up, Batman V Superman is looking less like Man of Steel 2 and more like a World's Finest prologue. With at least four Justice League characters confirmed for the Man of Steel followup (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg), not to mention a massive supporting roster of characters (Lex Luthor and Alfred Pennyworth, among others) Zack Snyder will definitely need to walk a fine line between telling a compelling Batman/Superman story and establishing a multi-movie hero team arc.

After all, certain sequels that attempt to lay the foundation for an entire shared universe have been bloated and unfocused (Iron Man 2 and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as examples) - losing sight of a core character story that made the initial installment worthy of expansion in the first place. The filmmaker has promised that, even with so many new characters to setup, Dawn of Justice will serve as an evolution of Clark Kent's story - taking the characters in all new (uniting with the Justice League) as well as familiar (facing Lex Luthor) big screen directions.

Kent's life outside of Smallville was teased at the end of Man of Steel, as the hero began his new Daily Planet job in Metropolis, and now thanks to The Royal Marine Charitable Trust Fund, we have our first look at Cavill in Clark Kent wardrobe (sans glasses) on the set of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
