Henry Cavill reprises his most famous role as Superman in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' and reveals he'd rather the Man of Steel had his back in a fight than The Caped Crusader
Henry Cavill would chose Superman over Batman to have his back in a fight.
The 32-year-old actor reprises his role as the Man of Steel for the upcoming blockbuster movie 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' - which stars Ben Affleck as The Caped Crusader - and says he'd rather the man from Krypton helped him if he was ever caught in a sticky situation.
Henry told E! Online: "He (Superman) has all the powers and can't help but love everyone and wants to do the right thing [and] ... you know you have the right guy advising you."
Henry - who, following his first stint as the iconic superhero in 'Man of Steel' in 2013, was named Glamour magazine's Sexiest Man of the Year - thinks fans of the DC Comics won't be disappointed they see the mega-heroes facing off on screen
He added: "It's going to be epic, thrilling and visually spectacular."
However, the star revealed his most famous character's Achilles heel could be in the fact he "loves human beings" too much, which Batman uses against him.
Speaking of Superman's weakness to MTV, he teased: "[Superman] loves humanity, he loves human beings, and he doesn't want to hurt them. And so, Batman has an immediate advantage with that, and you'll see if he uses it."
Henry and Ben will don their respective capes again in the 2017 sequel 'Justice League: Part One' and the British actor is delighted to be a part of the growth of the characters.
He said about the films: "The DC cinematic universe is finally getting its chance to grow."
