At the start of the weekend, rumors began swirling that ‘Batman v Superman’* would be split into two parts, thanks to the circulation of a supposedly leaked screenshot teasing two different installments.

And now Superman himself, Henry Cavill, is officially debunking the rumors, confirming that the film will definitely not be split into two parts—so you can all stop being cranky about it.

We kind of know what ‘The LEGO Movie 2' is about, but what will LEGO Batman's new spin-off be about?
When Ben Affleck assumes the role of Batman in next year’s ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ he will join a long list of actors—some famous, some forgotten—who’ve donned the Caped Crusader’s famous tights (or rubber body armor). In a history that spans more than 70 years, Batman has appeared in over a dozen movies, and he’s evolved from a sad-looking dude in sagging Bat-ears to “Sad Batman.”
