The image was released via USA Today , who also chatted with Snyder about the superhero smash-up, which is currently shooting.

"We've both created this guy and we can push him around a little bit," he tells them of working with Cavill. "The more time I spend with Henry, the more he's Superman to me."

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice opens on 6 May 2016.
