A new video has just been posted with new Superman Henry Cavill talking his take on the DC shared movie universe. Cavill is asked how he would do the characters in the Justice League movie. He mentions he would do movies for each character leading up to Justice League movie with a threat bringing them all together. He goes on to mention Brainiac and Doomsday as potential villains.
See below for the full quote.
Head on over here to watch the video.


Zack Snyder also recently said something similar.

Henry Cavill on his Justice League take:


If Warner Bros. were to come to me and say "we are planning this and how do you want to do it," - you have to introduce various characters, so it's just not like 'bam' the world is full of god-like superheroes. You would have to find them and introduce them through various movies, and then bring them all together with a major threat that happens. Whether that threat be Doomsday or Braniac or whatever, we don't know, but it would have to be a lot more storyline to have the audience be okay with an introduction to say Brainiac or Doomsday.


Man of Steel hits June 14th!

Even Cavill knows that the best way is the Marvel way. Good man. Seems like a really good, genuine guy.

I really would of liked for all these movies to be out already and we would see the JL, I probably wont get to see JL till I am nearly 30 if they go for individual movies first lol

WB/DC shouldn't copy off of Marvel.... Just throw out that JL movie and once you see who ppl like in it, make solos for those characters.

Doubt if WB will do individual films for every member of the league.
I say instead of an after credits scene,there should be a film short lasting 5 minutes.

The short should showcase a character & hint at thier involvement in the greater DC Film Universe.
It's a more original & less expensive way to bring these heroes together.

In reality, what do have, like black on white, about JL film? It's said that MOS would start DCCU, and what else? With JL movie, I'm at the point: believes when sees. Wayne satellite cameo in MOS ain't warming my heart.

THANK YOU! Even Superman knows what hes doing! Give us a solo Aquaman, Flash and wonder woman film. Introduce Batman either through the justice league film (or solo just no origin story) same goes for green lantern, and if they go with cyborg or martian manhunter, introduce them in the justice league.

doomsday should be the last bad guy in the man of steel trilogy for superman to fight!

Levi: Niether of those franchises were intended to crossover though, so their movies separately didn't build up to shared universe. Marvel's shared universe was set up intentionally prior to The Avengers being made, but I personally wouldn't call it "the marvel way". I'd call it the smart way. If DC doesn't do it that way, then I think they would be going the wrong way, but I'd tweak it personally. To me it seems smarter to follow up Man of Steel with a World's Finest, or simply Superman/Batman, and have a semi seasoned Batman reaching out to Superman to show him a larger problem. Then they would team up and solve the problem, and uncover a larger conspiracy leading to Bats showing Supes potential allies at the end. Then in kind of a split post-credit scene show Bats and Supes seperatly reaching out to maybe Themyscira and Atlantis. Then do Justice League, and after that break off alittle into seperate hero movies like Man of Steel 2, Wonderman, Martian Manhunter, and Flash.

@Levi

It is the Marvel way since they were the first to do it.

Cavill is a great guy.
DruDox19 - 6/4/2013, 8:33 AM
Cavill is right but make Superman fight Brainiac first one of my biggest problems with the JLA is i dont want the team fighting only Superman Villains. Let Brainaic fight Superman leave it at that use [frick]ing Desparo or something im cool with Brainaic but him and thats [frick]ing it. Why cause if we just see Superman vilains making up JLAs villains then theres a problem.

I think Brainaic should just stay with Superman and that's it to be Honest, Doomsday has well. Hey i wouldnt mine seeing He'el to be honet with you but i see him appearing more in a lets say Superman video game then a movie same for Toyman.

it really isnt his call.

i love this guy- but i think he's speculating.
naterator - 6/4/2013, 11:56 AM
Its really not that far fetched...realistically we could see a JLA movie in the next three to four years if they started making movies for individual characters NOW. WW is a must...i think her movies will follow Man of Steel...its far over due. Also a sequel to GL would be wise. BATMAN HAS ALREADY BEEN ESTABLISHED...otherwise if they wanna use a different BATMAN then let his movies come after the JLA teamup.

Im going to bet that the easter egg will be CB BATMAN and it will be the wayne enterprises logo from that franchise that appears on the satellite. All the haters will then be hating.

Everybody has a plan. That's good. And all of the fanboy sites are reporting that Henry Cavill and Zach Snyder think an approach to Justice League should go a certain way, therefore that is what will happen. The thing is Zach Snyder is not the boss calling the shots. Zach Snyder works for Warner Brothers and Warner Brothers is calling the shots and there has not been one single official word from Warner Brothers to substantiate any of these bits of gossip being put forward by nobody.

Would it be nice to see some sort of intro for a few of the JLA members who haven't been to the big screen? Yeah! Do people know who the members of the JLA are? Basically, yeah. People still remember that the Flash had a weekly tv show, and they are aware of the Justice League animated series and the Direct to DVD animated movies that include the Justice League. Justice League is visible in stores and online, Wonder Woman has been big news with an old tv show and the pilot for the cancelled series recently. Smallville introduced people to a number of JL members. And there is more, so to say the characters are unknown and NEED an intro is not correct. All it takes is a little more imagination than Warner Brothers is willing to play with. A Justice League movie that works and is successful in 2015 without other movies first can be done, and act5ually, if they got off their asses and just went with it, they could get a movie out before 2015 that could get exposure for 2 members, maybe go Green Lantern 2 with a better director and a less than stupid story and bring Flash in there. GL and the Flash have teamed up before, do it on screen. And at the end of that movie go 5 minute teaser and get in a brief look at Aquaman maybe. In the meantime, push DC exposure in every medium possible, on tv, in the stores and out here on the Internet. And for Warner Brothers, get over the no guts-no glory syndronme and make a move, a real one, not the constant well maybe this, no, no, maybe not that, maybe something else. That is the one thing Marvel gets credit for, they just do it.
