Ben Affleck & Henry Cavill Talk 'Batman v Superman' with 'EW'

Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck take separate covers of EW‘s Batman v Superman issue, in character as the two title roles.

Here’s what the actors had to share with the mag:

Ben, on Batman questioning himself: “He’s projecting his own sense of failure, his own sense of disillusionment, his own cynicism onto Superman,”

Henry, on Superman’s weakness: “[Superman's] weakness is that he doesn’t want to hurt anyone. He doesn’t want to scare anyone, and in that you can take advantage of him. This is someone who is a complete amateur, and he’s facing up against someone who is very well versed in the arts of war.”
