Plot details are very few about the upcoming film, but io9 spoke with star Henry Cavill about one specific thing: Lois Lane knowing Clark’s secret.
“I think it’s essential,” he said. “Because if we’re trying to base it in reality, there’s no way that Lois has these direct interactions with Superman, and then doesn’t recognize Clark sitting next to her in the office. If she falls in love with Superman, and she’s ignoring a guy who looks just like Superman, behaves just like him, and has the same kind of mannerisms and behavior, then what does that say about Lois? I like this relationship. She saves him just as much as he saves her.”
The new Batman is yet to be cast for the film, but Goyer is currently co-writing the story with director Zack Snyder. Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane will return.
