Ben Affleck Hides in the Batmobile to Surprise Fans for ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Charity Campaign
Like last year’s Omaze charity campaign for Star Trek Beyond, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s partnership with the organization has yielded some similarly charming results. The latest video promoting the charity drive features Ben Affleck surprising fans during the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, with the actor hiding out in the new Batmobile and interacting with the crowd — and throwing some shade at Superman, obviously.
The video is part of Batman v Superman’s campaign for Omaze, which unites several charitable organizations and invites fans to donate for the chance to win a trip to the premiere of Zack Snyder’s film. While touring WB’s Picture Car vault (which features many classic Batman vehicles), fans are surprised to find Affleck behind the wheel of the new Batmobile. He’s incredibly charismatic, as usual, and tries to win fans over to Batman’s side by criticizing Henry Cavill’s Superman and his choice of vehicle (a Mazda Protege — ouch).
Here’s the official description of the campaign from Warner Bros. and Omaze:
Warner Bros Studio Tour Hollywood joined with Ben Affleck to help launch his Omaze charitable campaign. Affleck surprises guests by opening the door and emerging from the new Batmobile which he drives in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in the studio tour’s Picture Car Vault, home to some of Batman’s most famous vehicles, including the Tumbler from The Dark Knight trilogy and the Bathammer from Batman and Robin. Affleck then takes the Batmobile for a roaring ride around the backlot offering rides to surprised visitors on the tour cart. Watch and enter to join Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s three leading men at the film’s premiere.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25. To learn more about Omaze and donate for a chance to win a trip to the premiere, visit the official website.
