And we have the pictures to prove it.
'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' finally made its New York premiere yesterday (March 20th 2016) as fans gear up for the excitement of its theatrical debut on Friday. The cast and crew of the hugely anticipated DC crossover movie were all over the red carpet, along with a few special guests and the cast of pre-Batman TV series 'Gotham'.

Henry Cavill was left heartbroken when he met a bunch of very young superhero fans, many of whom were brutally honest in their declaration that they favoured Batman over Superman. Kids just don't mess around; they know what they want and they're not prepared to sugar-coat the situation.
Sorry, Henry, kids know best!
When Cavill visited the Durrell Wildlife Conservation as part of a movement with the charity Omaze, he decided to get some answers about who was really the better Superhero. He probably wasn't expecting such bluntness though.

'Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice' makes an adversary of everyone.
Next year is taking comic books to a new level. No longer are the lines between heroes and villains solid. Now we're seeing a new side to our favourite caped crusaders; Marvel's Captain America may be bringing about a civil war, but that's nothing compared to the battle between DC's Batman and Superman in 'Dawn Of Justice'.
Henry Cavill reprises his role as Clark Kent
The new trailer sees an evermore intensifying hostility between the two vigilantes: on the one side you've got a billionaire human being named Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) who's disillusioned with what Gotham City has become and determined to fight crime in his own way, and on the other you've got an alien journalist named Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) with supernatural powers who's rather more modest when it comes to his own crime-fighting practices.
The actor insists it's about making big characters human in a potentially pre-apocolyptic world.
Taking a break from his role as Superman, Henry Cavill took a trip to the swinging 60s to star in Guy Ritchie's spy action-comedy The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It's a much more light-hearted role than 2013's Man of Steel, and offers a glimpse into how Cavill might have played James Bond (he was a finalist to play 007 before Daniel Craig landed the role).

In fact, some critics have said that U.N.C.L.E. is nothing but summer fluff. "As an actor, I don't go out looking for a message," he says. "But I believe anyone can take what they want from it. It's set in a time of potential nuclear apocalypse and asking how that would feel. The 1960s were, apparently, awesome. So if you're sitting around now being a misery-guts because you're having a bad day, well, what if it were the 1960s and the world could actually end?"

Adopting a deliciously groovy vibe, Guy Ritchie turns the iconic 1960s TV spy series into a flashy action-comedy. There's absolutely nothing to this frothy romp, but it's packed with hilarious characters and lively action scenes that continually surprise the audience with inventive twists on the genre. And it just might turn the suave, fast-talking Henry Cavill and the brooding, engaging Armie Hammer into A-list stars in the process.
It opens in 1963 East Berlin, where ex-con CIA operative Napoleon Solo (Cavill) is trying to help sexy mechanic Gaby (Alicia Vikander) escape to the West, chased by his nemesis, KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Hammer). Gaby's father is a nuclear scientist on the verge of selling his secrets to a rogue Italian billionaire couple (Elizabeth Debicki and Luca Calvani) so, even though the Cold War is raging, the CIA and KGB decide to cooperate on the mission. This means that rivals Solo and Illya must work together as they travel to Rome with Gaby, making contact with British agent Waverly (Hugh Grant) and Gaby's creepy uncle (Sylvester Goth). And of course, there are unexpected wrinkles along the way.
As always, Ritchie cleverly subverts each set-piece, letting chase scenes unfold in carefully staged but enjoyably inventive ways, often putting the real action in the background while the characters act as if they're above all this nastiness. As popcorn entertainment, this is first-rate, with a cast that's more than up to the challenge. Cavill is particularly smooth, a Bond-style spy who seems unable to resist seducing every pretty woman he meets. Hammer's role is pricklier, since Illya never quite relaxes, although his petulance makes him just as likeable. Their interplay is snappy and often very funny but, unlike Ritchie's similarly toned Sherlock Holmes movies, this strains to avoid being a bromance. Solo and Illya continue to spy on each other right to the end, maintaining their Cold War distance even as they team up to save the world.
