Henry Cavill shares the one thing that can defeat Superman

08.14.2015

Ever since BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE was announced, fans have been arguing just how the mortal Bruce Wayne could ever defeat the Kryptonian Kal-el in battle. We have seen the mechanized suit Ben Affleck sports as Batman in the trailers as well as Lex Luthor in possession of General Zod's body, so the assumption has been that Luthor and Wayne will team up to stop Superman. It could be Kryptonite or something else (like Doomsday), but we still don't know exactly what can stop Superman.

The actor who embodies Supes, Henry Cavill, shed his own insight on what could stop the god-like hero and it definitely doesn't involve green rocks from his home planet. Here is what he told The Guardian.

 “People think Kryptonite can beat him. No. The only thing that can really beat Superman is Superman. His own noggin messing with him. His own moral choices. When you have that to start with, the storytelling can really delve into something rich.” He stops for a moment, then heads off in a surprising direction. “It’s like shagging someone for the first time. Sometimes it turns out to be amazing. Mostly you’re trying to get each other’s rhythm going. It’s on the next go that you start to expand.” Playing Superman repeatedly will make possible such an expansion. “That’s why I do it. That and the money.”

So there you have it. BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is not just going to be full of explosions and action but also psychological warfare. We all saw Superman scream after killing General Zod in MAN OF STEEL, a moment many questioned as being appropriate for the character. Now, that moment can be exploited to mess with the developing hero as he tries to do right even when others see him as a threat.

Cavill's comment about doing it for the money is quite interesting as well. Born to a financially well-off family, Cavill understands acting for a paycheck helps maintain a nice lifestyle and he is not shy about saying he is happy to play the "grandaddy of all superheroes" for the rest of his career.

Interesting little analogy there that fanboys can never relate to. On that note I always believed Superman didn't really want to kill General Zod so of course it's gonna have some impact on him psychologically. I'm surprised no one ever picked up on that fact, plus he was just barely adjusting to being Superman.

False.

A poor script, shoddy directing and a self loathing superman can defeat Superman. Also, so can Kryptonite, Red suns and magic. Oh and Lead.

The headline pisses me off because everyone know "the one thing" that can beat Superman

With that said..... I really think Hank's words are a subtle clue. Him saying only Superman can beat Superman lends credence to me thinking Lex either clones Clark or takes his DNA or some scientific shit and uses it against him. But I also think Metallo is this movie's villain. So idk. Anyway... I gave it red because of the headline. That is all.

I can confirm the only villains in this movie are human... The idea of Superman, the way Batman was an idea in Dark Knight, is the big focus of this movie. It is the reason Batman comes out of retirement.

There is no big villain (no metallo). It is just Superman trying to come to terms with being praised as a God, becoming a government employee. We see in the trailer Batman in the dessert. This is after his second fight with Superman. Batman becomes obsessed with tracking Superman and

There is no big villain (no metallo). It is just Superman trying to come to terms with being praised as a God, becoming a government employee. We see in the trailer Batman in the dessert. This is after his second fight with Superman. Batman becomes obsessed with tracking Superman and follows him to Iran. Superman is there to take out a nuclear missile silo by the orders of the President of the USA (who is a puppet for Luthor).

Luthor is basically a dweeb in the script. He loses his hair after being set on fire near the end of the movie. He builds his super suit but its so anticlimactic that he is beaten in like 3 minutes. All of the good fight scenes are shown in the trailer. There are two with Batman and one with Wonder Woman (which lasts the shortest) She just retreats. She has more scenes being a civilian (a fucking MODEL as her dayjob) prior to the fight but after it she isn't heard from.

So like I said, there is no real big villain. There are just cool fight scenes (they read well on paper at least)

I hope one day we'll get Henry Cavill's Superman vs. Henry Cavill's Evil Superman, like the one in Superman 3.

We need to push boundaries and not always sticking with the status quo with known characters. Tired of seeing the same hum drum story and to push some characters and audiences for that matter, into some unknown territories will be refreshing and it's always good to keep us guessing rather than knowing the direction of a film and of the character.

Now that Superman has experience in fighting (with defeating Zod), it'll be interesting to see his moral code and boundaries pushed and challenged to it's full extent presumably by Bruce, and the naysayers of the DCCU. Glad to see Snyder showing us Clark's mental psychological capacity and not just physical.

What people don't realize is that when Batman evens out the score with that bat-exo-suit thing, Superman is gonna be in trouble, even without Kryptonite. One of them is fairly new to combat, (Superman) while the other has trained extensively in martial arts and various forms of hand to hand combat for probably more than half his life.

this isn't the first time Batman and Superman have fought, have fans really been arguing about how Batman could defeat Superman?
One theory someone floated by me about why the two are fighting was that this is the story where Lex makes a clone...But, I kinda like the idea that Superman starts it cause he thinks that Batman is evil and then they become best buds, cause...stuff.
