Batmobile Fans Get A Shocking Superhero Surprise

One intriguing aspect of any visit to Los Angeles is the opportunity to have chance encounters with movie stars. Several fans experienced a heightened version of this recently, while on the Warner Bros Studio Tour. When it came time to visit the tour’s Picture Car Vault—home to several Batman vehicles, including the Tumbler from The Dark Knight trilogy—the latest incarnation of the Batmobile came with a surprise guest: Ben Affleck. Promoting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the film’s new Omaze campaign, the actor took several excited fans for a spin in the world’s most anticipated movie vehicle.

Here’s a look at how it went down:

For those who don’t know how Omaze works, this is a company that works with celebrities and other brands to raffle unique, luxurious experiences for affordable prices, in order to raise money for charity. The Ultimate Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Experience allows you to contribute at several price levels—much like Kickstarter, the rewards increase with the size of your contribution—and everyone qualifies for the grand prize. This consists of four parts: take a spin in the Batmobile, fly with Henry Cavill in a helicopter, take a photo with Ben Affleck at the NYC premiere, and photobomb the cast with Jesse Eisenberg on the red carpet.


After several years of hype, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice finally arrives in theatres March 25. Find out more about The Ultimate Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Experience here and revisit one of the movie’s many trailers below.
