During a new interview with ScreenSlam, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice star Henry Cavill said that he hopes the movie does well -- not just for the sake of this movie, but for the larger picture of Superman's history and personality.

The actor suggested that box office success is the surest way for him to have more opportunities to explore what makes Superman tick in the future, and acknowledged that there's "always concern" for the money for that reason.

"There is always concern for box office because this is such a big picture -- and I don't mean this movie is a big picture, I mean there's a big picture to apply to," Cavill admitted. "I really want to tell the full story of Superman. There's a complexity to the character, and we've only just scratched the surface and there's a lot to be done. So if the box office on this is fantastic, there is a whole world opened up of potential and possibility for me to be able to continue telling the Superman story and really dive into the psychology and personality of the character."
