Nicolas Cage, who stars as Big Daddy in Kick-Ass, made an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno this week to promote his new superhero action film, which opens in theaters today.
In Kick-Ass, which is based on the comic book series by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr., Cage’s Big Daddy is a Batman-type superhero out for justice while plotting revenge on a mob boss. His costume and gadgets all scream ‘Batman’ as does his motivations, but Big Daddy is a lot more violent and unforgiving than the Caped Crusader, as evidenced by the clip from the film that was shown on The Tonight Show.
For Cage’s appearance on the late night talk show, host Jay Leno decided to test the actor’s knowledge on Batman by going beyond just asking him trivia questions. Instead, he had Adam West, who played Batman on the 1960’s television series Batman, come out to play against him! Now, Cage is known for his love of comics and superheros, but can he really beat Batman in a Batman trivia contest?
Find out in this video below from the trivia segment, which also includes the aforementioned clip from the film.
