Henry Cavill discovered that having cool superpowers does not necessarily mean Superman wins everyone's hearts, especially with kids who are completely honest about who they think is cooler between him and Batman.
As part of a joint marketing and philanthropic effort, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" partnered up with Omaze to give fans who donate a chance to win "The Ultimate Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Experience" while benefitting three nonprofit organizations nominated by Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Jesse Eisenberg.
Cavill visited Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in the British Isles to invite everyone to join the contest. Of course, he did not miss out on trying to get kids on Superman's side. He is seen speaking to several kids and not-so-subtly trying to convince them that Superman is cooler than Batman. Some of the kids did choose Superman but those who did not offered a much more interesting conversation, even from the beginning of the video.
"What do you like about Superheroes again? You like that they can fly, that they're super strong, that they can move really fast, they can bend metal and they can shoot lasers from their eyes. Ok... so you like Superman?" Cavill asks two little girls only to be shot down.
"No. Batman," the girls were quick to answer.
Close to the 1 minute mark, Cavill talks to another group of kids and receives another interesting answer. While one kid likes both superheroes evenly, another says he likes the villains better.
Watch Cavill's interaction with the kids below.
"The Ultimate Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Experience" offers a fan and his or her friend the chance to win tickets to the premiere of the film as well as fly on a helicopter with Superman or ride in the Batmobile with Batman. Plane tickets and hotel accommodations are included in the prize.

Omaze is not a newcomer when it comes to giving fans awesome experiences. One of its most recent campaigns was for the HBO series "Game of Thrones" which benefited Red.Org. The winning fan and a friend were taken to Belfast to visit the "Game of Thrones" set and chat with the actors on Feb. 15.
