It seems Henry Cavill is out promoting ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ in his own creative way while also proving a point about disguises and being recognized even in the digital age.
According to his recent Instagram post, Cavill apparently went to Times Square, New York, which is currently plastered with posters for ‘Batman V Superman’ with many shots of his face, just to see if anyone would actually recognize him. The post is a little video showing Cavill standing around various spots, even sporting a Superman T-Shirt, and no one seems to know/care who he is (of course, he always could have just edited out anyone that spotted him and recognized him). The tag on the post is ‘Dear Doubter, The glasses are good enough. Regards, Superman,” with Cavill clearly making a point that no one recognized him in a Superman shirt and without glasses, meaning that when Superman goes all Clark Kent with glasses, new clothes, and a new attitude, people clearly would never be able to peg him as the Man of Steel (still debatable clearly. No one in Times Square knew Cavill personally, it is still hard to believe those in Clark Kent’s life would not recognize his features when they are saved by Superman).
