“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is getting adorable with its latest marketing tactic, including some of superhero’s biggest tiny fans — the kids!
Henry Cavill might not have been the most unbiased interviewer for this particular question, but that didn’t stop him from gathering an assortment of small children together to poll them on who they liked better: Superman or Batman?
Cavill starts with the standard, “Which superhero is better” question, and then segues into which superpower are coolest. Hint: Batman has none, so it’s a trick question. He even looks directly into camera at one point after saying, “I know it’s a tricky one … Batman doesn’t have any superpowers. Does he, Ben?”
Cavill shamelessly tries to stump the kids and sway them to Superman’s side, even going so far as to make fun of Batman’s inability to fly. “He kind of has wings. Batman can’t go up, he only goes down. Superman can do both, can’t he?”
While some of the kids caught on to what Cavill wanted to hear, having recognized him from “Man of Steel,” others decided to tell it how it was. Two little girls in particular seem unable to be swayed by Cavill’s antics, steadfastly sticking to Batman’s side no matter how many times the actor tries to stump them. You go, little nerd girls!
