'Batman v Superman' Omaze Campaign Launches by Asking Which Hero Is Better
Who is better — Batman or Superman? A new video starring Batman v Superman's Henry Cavill attempts to answer that question once and for all, with the assistance of some of the iconic DC superheroes' youngest fans.
The video, which launches the Omaze campaign attached to next month's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, sees Cavill ask a bunch of kids who their favorite superhero is, choosing between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel.
Cavill might, admittedly, be a biased questioner — "I think you've got Batman confused with Superman, haven't you?" he says in response to a girl who says Batman can fly, explaining, "Batman can't go up, he can only go down, Superman can do both" — but he proves to be an impressively good sport in the face of Batman getting a lot of votes. (Somewhere, Ben Affleck is feeling smug.)
The BvS Omaze campaign benefits three non-profits: the Eastern Congo Initiative, which works to bring stability and self-sufficiency to regions in central Africa; the SEED Project, an education project helping young African kids; and the British-based wildlife organization, the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. Those donating to the campaign will not only be entered into a draw to attend the Batman v Superman red carpet premiere in New York on March 20, but also receive other bonuses based on their level of donation.
More details can be found here.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens on March 25, hopefully settling the question of which is the better hero once and for all. (It's Superman, of course.)
