While Zack Snyder is due to unleash his clash between Henry Cavill's Supes and Ben Affleck's Bats in 2016, Total Film grills the stars on who's better: Batman or Superman?
"Superman for me, because that film came out when I was nine," said Hugh Jackman. "When I was a kid I wanted to be Superman — I didn't want the belt, I wanted the undies outside my tights."
"Superman is unkillable and has super-strength — unless you have kryptonite. Which I don't think Batman's gonna have on him," answered a rising Aussie star Liam Hemsworth. "Batman's just a dude with a lot of money and some cool gadgets and a vigilante heart."
Michael Fassbender, Henry Cavill's co-star in Blood Creek also prefers Superman: "I wanted to be Superman when I was younger and I did have the Superman outfit. I actually played this game with my cousin where he'd stand on the street dressed as Clark Kent, and when a car came he ran behind the bush and I came out!"
Superman was an ultimate superhero for Tom Hiddleston as well: "Supes. I can literally pinpoint the moment, seven years old, that I see Christopher Reeve as Superman for the first time, with that theme tune," he said. "I just love that film unequivocally. I remember when I was auditioning for the very first Thor film I went back and I rented Superman, watched it, and thought 'that is how you do it'."
We are grateful to all the stars who have made the choice in favor of Superman.
