Bruce Campbell Thinks Batman Fighting Superman Is A Mistake

The LA Times spoke with Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) and Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess), the stars of Ash Vs. Evil Dead. During the discussion, Campbell goes on a tangent, talking about how The Dark Knight wouldn't stand a chance against the Man of Steel in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

One of the main reasons Campbell is reprising his iconic Ash role for Starz's Evil Dead television series is because the character is far from perfect. He explains that when he segways into Batman v Superman.

"I don't like characters that are too perfect. What are you going to do with them? That's my only problem with some superheroes is that they're too perfect," Campbell told the LA Times. "Batman fighting Superman? To me that's, sorry Warner Bros., it's just a mistake. Because most fans are going to go, "Baloney, Superman, in his sleep."

It is then pointed out that Batman will wear special armor in his battle against the Big, Blue Boy Scout, which leads to a funny exchange between him and Lawless.

Campbell: Batman does? Well he's gonna need it -- he's fighting Superman! His face is exposed. Punch Ben Affleck in the face, you're done. Walk away. What's for lunch?

Lawless: He's like, "No no not the face, not the face!"

Campbell: Hey, nice try. I'm not buying what they're selling. Because OK, Kryptonite, well, who's carrying around Kryptonite? Only Lex Luthor.

Lawless: Ah, Batman's suit, hello.

Campbell: Batman's suit is made out of Kryptonite?

Lawless: Probably.

Campbell: What a crock. Where's he gonna get it, on the Internet?

Lawless: You can get anything on the Internet. Kryptonite underpants.

In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, 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.
