Fan-boys and girls across the globe felt a disturbance in the force today as word spread across the Internet about Henry Cavill‘s remarks in response to a question from SFX. Could a World’s Finest movie be in the works?
“I think it would be really interesting with the age-old Batman/Superman conflict, because they are two different sides of the same coin and their methods are entirely different. And I think it would actually make for an interesting story as to why, first of all, they were going head to head and how. I think that would make a great story.”
When asked if this movie idea is actually a possibility, Cavill replied:
“Who knows, I’m sure there’s all sorts of ideas being thrown around at Warner Bros right now.”
Now we can all run wild with speculation, riot in the street, proclaim new and exciting plot synopsis-es, cast the entire series of movies, argue about said casting, and do all the other things we love to do on the Internet.
One thing I do know is that Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel is going to crush the box office numbers and that will open many doors to possibilities we fans have only been able to dream, and argue about in comic book forums.Throw in Warner Brothers desperation to develop the DC movie franchises into something similar to the money-making juggernaut that Marvel Studios and Disney has created and you’ve got a boiling pot just waiting to explode with new movies.
Does this mean we’ll finally get the World’s Finest movie we’ve all wanted? Perhaps, only time and box office receipts will tell.
