Batman Ben Affleck cuddles with Superman...the puppy

Though the reviews of "Batman v Superman" are mixed, at least we know that when Superman is a puppy he can melt even Batfleck's heart.

Reviews have not been kind to "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," which opened in theaters this week.

Apparently, not everyone appreciates actor Ben Affleck's take on the Caped Crusader, not to mention Batman's beef with Superman, played by actor Henry Cavill.

There's even a viral video remix that portrays a very sad-looking Affleck talking about the movie's mixed reviews from critics.

But don't feel too sorry for Affleck. Talk show host Jimmy Fallon cheered up the actor on Thursday during his "Tonight Show" appearance, with a silly "Pup Quiz" trivia game about comic superheroes, animals and birds, with the prizes being adorable puppies dressed up as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Flash and other popular DC Comics characters.

Initially, Affleck starts off being awarded a puppy dressed as Superman, which makes for a cuddly combo. Fallon has a winning streak piling on puppy after puppy -- including a very affectionate Wonder Woman.

But in the end, Affleck wins them all, making us glad that he can "paws" and reflect on the positive side of promoting "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" on the late night talk show circuit.
