Over the past few years, the organization Omaze has teamed up with a number of major Hollywood productions for special events that helped benefit worthy causes, and gave a few lucky fans the opportunity to meet their favorite stars. Last year, Star Trek Beyond teamed with Omaze to give away trips to the set of this sci-fi sequel, and Harrison Ford also teamed up with Omaze for another campaign where fans could win a trip to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere. This year, Omaze has teamed up with Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for a new contest. In support of the event Henry Cavill appeares in a humorous video where he faces the toughest critics of all, a group of children. The video shows the actor asking these youngsters which hero they prefer, Batman or Superman?
The video kicks off a new Omaze campaign, where one lucky winner will attend the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere. They will also get to meet Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg. The winner and a friend will get to ride in the Batmobile with Ben Affleck at the New York City premiere, and then fly in a helicopter with Henry Cavill. They will also get to photobomb the rest of the cast on the red carpet with Jesse Eisenberg.
This campaign will benefit three charities, Eastern Congo Initiative (ECI), The SEED Project and Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, which were nominated by the actors. The Eastern Congo Initiative, which was founded by Ben Affleck, is a grant-making and advocacy organization whose singular mission is to help bring stability and self-sufficiency to Congo. ECI enables change through community-based approaches that are essential to creating a sustainable and successful society in eastern Congo. The SEED Project was nominated by Jesse Eisenberg, which uses basketball and education to develop the next generation of African leaders. Henry Cavill nominated the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, which pursues its mission of saving species from extinction through its 3 core areas: worldwide conservation projects, training programs & the Wildlife Park in Jersey.
Fans who donate at least $10 to the Omaze campaign will also receive a number of different perks as well. For a $50 donation, fans will receive a Limited Edition Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Adult Coloring Book, but for the high rollers, you can actually get to have dinner with Jesse Eisenberg for a $20,000 donation, and go on a weekend trip to meet Henry Cavill at the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in Channel Islands, U.K. if you donate $40,000. The biggest prize, literally and figuratively, is a seven-foot tall Dawn of Justice Batman Statue + Plaque Signed by Ben Affleck, which you can get for donating $50,000. Visit the Omaze site for more details on how you can donate and take a look at the rest of the campaign perks.
It remains to be seen if Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg will be featured in more Omaze videos, but for now, check out Henry Cavill's hilarious video, where he tries to convince a group of kids that Superman is the best hero.
