Just last year, it was President Barack Obama who visited students on Michigan State's campus. Who's this year's celebrity visitor?

How about Ben Affleck.

Affleck is currently filming scenes for "Batman vs. Superman" in East Lansing. The well-known actor decided to stop and talk to the Michigan State football team for a moment before the Spartans' practice on Thursday.

"I'm Batman," Affleck said to open his comments, according to MSU spokesman John Lewandowski. "Beat Indiana."

Michigan State plays at Indiana at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.

Check out some of the top tweets from practice.
