Batman v Superman: Henry Cavill talks Ben Affleck on Jimmy Kimmel

‘Genuine dislike. You know, that happens’

Posted on


The big-screen fight between Batman and Superman will be an acrimonious one. In the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice clip that star Henry Cavill brought to Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday, for example, Superman tells Batman never to answer the Bat-signal again, while the Dark Knight promises that the Man of Steel will bleed.

Kimmel asked Cavill if any of that animosity creeped over into the real-life on-set interactions between him and costar Ben Affleck.

“No, I just didn’t like him,” Cavill joked. “Genuine dislike. You know, that happens. Then you become lovers, and make videos with each other.”

“It’s like Sam and Diane, in a way,” Kimmel said.
