In a recent interview with Cineplex.com, Superman Henry Cavill touched upon the mix reaction that Man of Steel received. While Cavill doesn't address the criticisms directly, some fans weren't too thrilled with Superman killing Zod, all the destruction in Metropolis, and even letting Pa Kent die. Cavill even also offers if they will clear things up in Batman Vs. Superman.
â€śThe reception of my firstÂ SupermanÂ movie, from what Iâ€™ve read, was fairly mixed. Everyone Iâ€™ve spoken to enjoyed the movie, but [not] unlike if youâ€™re going to meet a stranger in the street, theyâ€™re not going to badmouth you to your face. Thereâ€™s no intentional move, I donâ€™t think, inÂ Batman v. SupermanÂ to address any issues that people had withÂ Man of Steel. Itâ€™s just a continuation of that storyline and they continue to develop that world and introduce new characters.â€ť
