It’s a debate that’s raged since 1939. Who’s better: Batman or Superman?

Of course, that’s a choice that no one needs to make. The Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel each have their high points. (Respectively, in this writer’s opinion: batarangs and pet dog with a cape.) But with “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” hitting theaters in March, certain flames of rivalry were bound to be stoked.

That’s why actor Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in the sequel to 2013’s “Man of Steel,”decided to defend his best interests the only way the Internet knows how to settle a debate: with cute children. Watch the Kryptonian-by-way-of-England grill some small superhero fans below.


Cavill makes a good point: Batman can only fly if he falls off of something.
