Watch Ben Affleck Hilariously Prank Superman Fans Using His Batmobile

It’s now March, which means that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be premiering later this month. When it does, we will finally get an answer to the question, "Who will win when the two take each other on?" Of course, Ben Affleck, who plays Batman in the film, has his opinion, and it’s one that he holds very dearly. So much so that when he hears people saying that Superman will win, he feels he has to say something. Directly to them.

The video is part of the promotion that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is doing with charity organization Omaze. As many films have done in the past, Dawn of Justice is looking to raise some money for some worthy causes through the popularity of the movie. Ben Affleck starts by popping out of the Batmobile during Warner Brothers studio tours. It’s so surprising that a number of people on the tour don’t even believe that it’s really Affleck. We have to admit, whatever the actor has going on with his hair here is not the ‘do we’re used to seeing, so it may be understandable that people aren’t sure it’s really him. As far as the people who aren’t convinced he’s a real person? We can’t really do anything with that.

Ben Affleck looks to be having some fun here. He lets some kids sit in the Batmobile with him and even lets one guy go for a ride. Getting a chance to ride in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Batmobile is part of the prize that they are giving away as part of the Omaze contest. You also get to fly in a helicopter with Henry Cavill and attend the film’s premiere with the cast.

This video is a companion to one that Henry Cavill put out last week in which he discussed the Batman v Superman question with young kids, and attempted to convince them that Superman was the better hero. He met with limited success at best. We expect the two will continue to argue the question for the next few weeks until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is finally released.

We tend to figure that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice won’t actually answer the question of who will win in a fight between the two. Both heroes need to keep their credibility after all. Alternatively, we’re hoping Wonder Woman beats the hell out of both of them. What do you think?
