Renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is back once again choosing Superman over Batman.

Tyson previously said "Batman is just a guy with a nice belt," and now says more of the same in that Batman wouldn't stand a chance in a cage fight versus Superman.

Tyson also goes on to make a point that we all know Batman is human while Superman is Superman.

"Superman would wipe his butt with Batman," Tyson offers. "That's basically what would happen there."

Tyson then goes on to say a better fight would be Batman Vs. Iron Man as they are both human.

The astrophysicist does say that Batman does stand a chance against Superman, just not in a physical confrontation. Batman would need to go a different avenue, such as in the court of public opinion (or even one that of the government).

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.


Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
