It’s no secret now that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not very popular among critics. The film is currently sitting at a frighteningly bad 32% on Rotten Tomatoes. While it’s unlikely the reviews will have a significant impact on the film’s opening weekend, and it’s far from clear that the movie won’t still make a billion dollars, you have to wonder how the cast and crew, who put a lot of time and work into the film, feel about these results.

As the press tour for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice isn’t quite over yet, Yahoo had the opportunity to actually ask the stars of the film, along with director Zack Snyder, what they think of the early response. It's about as uncomfortable as you might imagine:

Superman has been through this before. Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel was also not universally loved by the critics, but the movie did significantly better among audiences. He thinks that the negative critical reviews are simply a case of bias.
The interesting thing is that we get the critics who have their personal opinions. And the thing about personal opinions is that they always come from a place. And there’s a preconceived idea which you have to get past a critic before you start writing your article or your review, and that affects everything.

It’s not entirely clear what "preconceived idea" he thinks they’re battling against, but certainly critics, like all other humans, have preconceived notions. It’s part of why there are so many film critics in the world, because many people feel differently about the same things. What did Cavill's co-stars think of the reviews? Read on.
