Los Angeles - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will not be released as two separate films.

Henry Cavill, who is playing the role of Superman in the much-anticipated movie that will also feature Ben Affleck, has moved to dismiss claims the film will be released in two parts.

The 31-year-old star told Variety that the Zack Snyder-directed film will be released as a single picture, contrary to internet speculation last week.

Cavill also came out in support of his co-star Affleck, saying he makes a "great" Batman, having taken over the iconic role from Christian Bale, who starred in three films in the franchise: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

Speaking at the BAFTA tea at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, Cavill offered an update on how Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is progressing.
