Spoiler: He fails adorably!

Asking the most "brutally honest" fans in the world, Henry Cavill attempts to settle the age-old debate: Who's better: Superman vs. Batman?

A bunch of kids shared what they think a great superhero can do: "Real" Superheroes can move fast, bend metal, shoot lasers, some of the kids said.

Though a majority of them chose the Caped Crusader over Kal-El because of his nifty utility belt, cool car, and fantastic lair filled with cutting-edge gadgets, Henry Cavill wasn't giving up on trying to win them over to the son of Krypton's side!

Henry: Why is batman better?

Kid: Because he can fly...

Henry: But Superman can fly. Batman can only fly if he falls off something...

Kid: No...

"If Batman and Superman had a fight, who do you think would win?"

"Superman has to get some upgrades."

More than spreading cuteness and giggles, this video is on a mission to raise awareness for a charity contest devoted to helping causes chosen by the stars of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which includes Cavill as well as Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg.

The winner of the contest will get to take a friend on a ride in the batmobile, fly in a helicopter with Cavill, meet and greet Ben Affleck (Bruce Wayne) and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) on the red carpet at the premiere in New York City!

Though he failed to win the kids over to wanting to hang out with Superman, Cavill remains excited to meet the winner of the contest for a good cause. He says, "I will have the chance to fly in a helicopter with the winner. I've done some flying before (wink wink) but helicopters always feel just that little bit of a notch up!"
