Everyone has picked a side on the “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” debate, even the cast of “Gilmore Girls.” Though the family dramedy isn’t the first thing people associate with superheroes, the cross promotion isn’t too surprising; Both projects are owned by Warner Bros. Jared Padalecki and Milo Ventimiglia chose their sides while hanging out on set of Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival. In typical Dean and Jess fashion, the men are on opposite sides.
Ventimiglia, who was standing in front of the iconic Stars Hollow gazebo set, revealed that he thinks Batman will be victorious. “Batman will win,” the actor claimed. “Crazy vigilante versus alien that feeds off of sunlight? Krypton or not, Batman’s gonna win.”
His allegiance to Bruce Wayne isn’t too surprising. Many years after first playing Jess Mariano on “Gilmore Girls,” the actor played the Ogre last year on Fox’s Batman prequel, “Gotham.”
Meanwhile, Padalecki, who was standing in front of the Doose’s Market set, chose Superman for his powers. “I wish Batman would win,” Padalecki admitted. “But Superman is the Man of Steel. He can catch bullets in midair, spit them back at people, so I think he might catch Batman off guard."
The “Supernatural” star might have a soft spot for the Kryptonian hero. He was rumored to be up for the part of Superman in a movie that was never made, called “Superman: Flyby,” while he was playing Dean Forester on the original WB series in the early 2000s.
Watch the men cast their votes on the “Gilmore Girls” set below:
Superheroes might not be the only thing Padalecki and Ventimiglia are fighting about on screen. They’re playing two of Rory Gilmore’s (Alexis Bledel) three ex-boyfriends who will show up in the Netflix series. While Rory will be single when the series kicks off, TVLine reports, it isn’t clear if she’ll rekindle the flame with any of her exes.
“Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” hits theaters Friday. “Gilmore Girls” still doesn’t have a premiere date.
