Cavill up for Worlds Finest

Could it happen?

SFX has dropped an exclsuive that Henry Cavill is interested in a World’s Finest movie. A movie of this nature, for Warner Brothers and DC, makes more sense than trying to ram 7 superhero heroes into one movie. Here is what Cavill had to say to SFX: 

“I think it would be really interesting with the age-old Batman/Superman conflict,” he tells SFX, “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.”

Will this happen any time soon? 

“Who knows,” says Cavill. “I’m sure there’s all sorts of ideas being thrown around at Warner Bros right now.”

There was talk of Wolfgang Petersen (Perfect Storm) talking on a World’s Finest movie years ago. It was also teased in Warner Brother’s I am Legend. All this was before Superman Returns floundered at the box office. Only time and an incredible opening box office weekend can tell.

Don't get your hopes up.  Bale is done. He won't be back in the cowl anytime soon.  So you would have to get, yet another actor for Batman. Hell the only character in history that has had more actors play them is Dr. Who!!

Either way, DC will drop the ball and won't do whats right and green light this project.

I keep saying this but the World's Finest 3-parter on Superman the Animated Series was the best Superman - Batman story ever. It would be fun if they adapted that.

Lex Luthor, Joker, Lois Lane. Can't ask for anything better than that.

And also a great catfight between Harley Quinn and Mercy Graves.

This would be the perfect and the most logical step for DC/Warners.

You don't need Bale!!!! The World's Finest movie would reboot a new Batman who is Bruce Wayne. This version would not be a stand alone one like the Nolan/Bale DK films. Sherlock, Dracula, Tarzan, and Frankenstein have had new actors all the time so it would be no problem with a very good young actor up for a new franchise.

The animated series World's Finest is also my favorite.

No more Bale.   Reboot Batman 100%.  bring on the new DC movies 100%  Then onto the JL.  Nuff said.

I am glad to hear that Cavill is pressing for more DC movies and tie in's.  It is a very good sign that more DC movies are going to be made.

I agree that Mr. Bale is not needed for this to happen.  He is worn down (his character), so it wouldn't make any sense to bring in an older / battle worn hero.  I feel it would need a Batman in his prime, not starting out.

I cannot wait for Man of Steel.  The last trailer was AWESOME.

Man they should let Snyder "Saga" this whole thing like Peter Jackson and LOTR!!

He should reboot Batman, then let him follow it up with The "World's Greatest", and then let him follow it up with Justice League.  Hell, if JJ Abrams can have Star Trek AND Star Wars, then Snyder should be able to handle this too. And I know he would want to since this is like any comic-fan-gone-big-time-director's wet dream.

I think that people are getting ahead of themselves, let's see if MoS is any good first. Sucker Punch had an awesome trailer too.

Teased in "I am Legend"?  I dont' remember that......and Superman Returns DIDN'T flounder at the box office!  It made plenty of money, if the critical reviews were better then it would be Brian Singer's sequel we'd be waiting for instead!  The film was a hit when it first dropped and I remember plenty of people liking it just fine, but history likes to embelish as time goes on.......kinda like how Spiderman 3 was a huge moneymaker but just an "ok" film when it came out.......2-3 years later and you'd think it was the worst fucking film ever made if you visited sites like this one!!

Wold's finest would be an awesome segway into a Justice League movie, and we all know it.  I loved the Dark Knight trilogy (even like TDKR a bit better as time goes by) but I 100% absolutely want a new actor for (a non-JGL/Blake) Batman.  Bruce is Bats, and it is time for some new blood.

All that said, I will be absolutely SHOCKED if we get a World's Finest movie with either Cavill or Bale.

A World's Finest movie makes too much sense, and that is why WB will never do it.  /sarcasm

This is going to be like that really hot girl you wanted to take to prom.

You ended up spending the money for the limo, the Ruth Chris dinner, and the alcohol.

And in the end of the night the only thing you got, were blue ballz. That's it. No pussy, no blow job, not even a grope. Just some flirty looks and insinuations but just a tease, the reality was much less rewarding that the fantasy. This is MOS. Sorry. Reality is Zod would WIN bitches. And you can't bring yourself to admit it.
Supes would bend over and kneel before Zod so he could swallow Zod. Otherwise Zod would kill millions if not all the in people on the planet. Yeah. Tell me I am wrong. I want to see evil win because good is dumb. And predictable.
