Batman v Superman: Ben Affleck, Jimmy Fallon play with puppies

More like ‘D’awwwwww of Justice’

Posted on


Ben Affleck stars as Batman in this weekend’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but when it comes to cuteness he’s got nothing on a golden retriever puppy dressed as Batman. On Thursday’s episode of The Tonight Show, Affleck faced host Jimmy Fallon in a game of “Pup Quiz.” The two took turns answering animal-related questions. If they answered correctly, they got to hold a puppy dressed as a superhero; if they didn’t, the puppy went to their opponent.

The game started off evenly, in that Affleck and Fallon both scuttled their questions and sent a puppy to each other. However, Fallon started racking up wins and puppies, especially when they got into higher-stakes “Double Puppardy” questions. Fallon soon had puppies crawling all over him while Affleck had only one Superman-clad retriever. It all came down, predictably, to the “Final Puppardy” question: how many dogs live in New York City?

Watch the clip below for the answer.
