The two duke it out in Yonge-Dundas Square, Pizza Pizza and the TTC about which summer flick will be better

The Batman vs. Spider-Man fighting on Toronto transit we told you about last week only happened to be part of a much more epic battle where the two duke it out all over the city for superhero supremacy.

The two started with a shoving match in Yonge-Dundas Square and continued with a chin-up contest on the subway.

They then walked around downtown trash talking each other and wrestling in Pizza Pizza and a subway platform.

The scenes don't look like they were directed by Christopher Nolan, but at many points that didn't stop a crowd from gathering to cheer on their favourite superhero and laugh.

"The idea to put these guys together just came from the fact that it was opening week for the new Spider-Man movie, both of these guys were talking smack about whose movie would do better, so I let them settle it in the streets and documented it for my Youtube channel," said Sean Ward to Yahoo! Canada News. Ward is the man behind this video along with Batman's Night Out, Batman VS Beaf Jerk and Chad Vader meets Toronto Batman. He has uploaded them all to his YouTube channel. "I wanted to do it because I love these interpretations of the characters and I knew it would be an amazing video.  I just let them go at it and made sure I got good camera angles."

The two appear to be arguing over who's movie is better. So far the new "Spider-Man" is off to a quick start as it topped the weekend box office, bringing in $65 million in the U.S. and Canada. The new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20 in Canada.

"There's a commotion a few cars north of where I'm sitting," recounted SYed in an email to CBC. SYed was the YouTube user who shot and uploaded the previous video of Batman and Spider-Man fighting on the TTC. "The commotion was Spidey and the Toronto Batman, the two fixtures who pose for photographs via donations around Yonge-Dundas Square."

SYed definitely feels like he got his full token's worth for the subway ride.

This isn't the first time Toronto Batman has been out making a commotion in Toronto.

In February, filmmakers initially set out to film a "S!*& _____ Says" video using a person dressed up as Batman, but ended up filming a much funnier video called "Batman's Night Out." Batman wandered around Toronto yelling famous lines from The Dark Knight at random people and riding the subway.
