Back in October of 2014, Warner Bros. released a video in which Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder and two of its stars, Ben Affleck and Amy Adams, raised awareness for bats and how many of them are dying off from a fungus called white-nose syndrome.

Now Batman v Superman and Man of Steel star Henry Cavill is using his celebrity status to help these winged-mammals too. He even adopted a baby bat and fittingly named him... Ben.

"Watch Henry Cavill meeting Livingstone's fruit bats at Durrell Wildlife Park in Jersey," Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust posted. "Henry came face to face with our latest arrival, a baby bat that's the latest hope for a species at serious risk of extinction in the wild. Henry wanted to help, and is doing so by naming him 'Ben', and becoming the first to adopt him.

"You can join Henry and Durrell in showing your support, and get a fantastic adoption pack with a range of exclusive items, including a hand-signed photo of Henry with his adopted bat Ben, by adopting him too!"

In Batman v.

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.
