It’s a scene straight out of a superhero blockbuster: Batman and Spider-Man got into a fight in New York City’s Times Square on Saturday night.

Or, rather, two men dressed as the caped crusader and your friendly neighborhood crime-fighter got into a fight … with a man heckling them at the popular tourist attraction, the New York Post reports.

Police say Abdel Elkahezai, a 35-year-old dressed as Spider-Man, and Jose Escalona-Martinez, a 41-year-old dressed as Batman, were arrested after getting into a brawl with 23-year-old Thomas Rorke, who allegedly provoked the costumed men with “sexually suggestive gestures” along with a friend.

The costumed men have been charged with misdemeanor assault. Rorke claims he was punched in the face several times and has visible injuries, Gothamist reports.
