During an appearance at a BAFTA Tea party earlier today, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice star Henry Cavill told Variety's New York Film Editor that the film will not be split into two films and released in consecutive years, as rumors flying around this weekend had contended.
Ramin Setoodeh posted a handful of tweets about chatting with the action star...not a one that won't set some fanboys' hearts aflutter.

Henry Cavill says he wasn't injured fighting Ben Affleck's Batman. "Are you kidding? I'm the Man of Steel." #BAFTATea— Ramin Setoodeh (@RaminSetoodeh) January 11, 2015
When asked if 'Batman V Superman' would be better than the 'Avengers,' Henry Cavill replied: "You'll see." #BAFTATea— Ramin Setoodeh (@RaminSetoodeh) January 11, 2015
Setoodeh's colleague Laura Prudom also shared that Cavill had told her she had awful taste for liking Batman better than Superman...so it seems that, in the fashion of somebody like Clark Gregg or Ming-Na Wen, Cavill is starting to really get into the fun of rooting for his character like a sports team when talking with reporters.
Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is in theaters in March 2016.
