Henry Cavill Tries to Convince Kids Superman Is Cooler Than Batman

The Man of Steel actor asks kids which superhero they like better and finds even super-human strength can't change their minds.

It's the age old debate: Who's cooler—Batman or Superman?

Actually, there's really not much to debate, since we all know the answer is Batman. Sure, Superman can fly, but the Caped Crusader has a stylish utlity belt, the coolest car we've ever seen, and a pretty killer lair tricked out with all the most cutting-edge gadgetry.

Plus, there's that whole Kryptonite thing.

But that didn't stop Henry Cavill (who plays the Man of Steel himself in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice) from trying to convince a bunch of kids otherwise in this adorable video from Omaze.

Sample question: "If Batman and Superman had a fight, who do you think would win?"

Answer: "Superman has to get some upgrades."

Ouch!

The video is part of an effort to raise awareness for an Omaze charity contest to benefit three causes personally selected by Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Jesse Eisenberg (who all star in the movie, natch). The winner and a guest will score the ultimate Batman v. Superman experience: ride in the Batmobile, fly in a helicopter with Cavill, meet Affleck and photo bomb with Eisenberg on the red carpet at the premiere in New York City, just ahead of the film's release on March 25.

So cool!

Even poor Cavill, who couldn't even manage to convince a couple of little girls that it would be cooler to hang out with Superman than with Batman, is excited about the experience. "I will have the chance to fly in a helicopter with the winner," he said. "I've done some flying before (wink wink) but helicopters always feel just that little bit of a notch up!"
