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).  Check out the Instagram post and video for yourself below:

While I appreciate the effort by Cavill to promote the film and weigh in on the glasses controversy, one cannot help but wonder how “spontaneous” this post truly was. It seems likely that it might just be another marketing ploy by the studio for more guerrilla style promotion for the upcoming film, which is mired in speculation and negative rumors at the moment, even if the world is anxiously anticipating it, praying that it somehow finds a way to live up to the hype. What are your thoughts on Cavill’s statement about the glasses disguise? Are you going to see ‘Batman V Superman’ next week? Share your comments below!
