Jaden Smith Music Video Takes His Batman Obsession to the Next Level

Dressing as the superhero at prom was just the beginning for the actor/musician.

Jaden Smith is heeding the bat signal.

Smith has released a new music video in which he plays Bruce Wayne/Batman (who suits up in white, rather than the classic black look). He gets a call from his butler Alfred on his cell, and ends up fighting other superheroes on Hollywood Blvd. (Though Marvel's Spider-Man has his faced blurred.)

The video is the latest in a string of public displays of enthusiasm from Smith for the DC superhero, including going to prom dressed in the cape and cowl in 2015 as well as to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding.

"I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and prom, which was fun, but also at the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so," he told GQ in 2015 of the decision.

Smith's father, Will Smith, squared off against Ben Affleck's Batman in Suicide Squad, where the elder Smith played the villain Deadshot.
