Are a simple pair of glasses enough of a disguise to hide Superman’s identity? DC Comics‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Henry Cavill took to the infamous Times Square in New York to prove a point.
Even with posters and billboards advertising the movie all around him, Cavill went unnoticed on the busy street. He even wore a Superman T-shirt in this experiment–sans glasses. He posted a short video of his experiment to his Instagram page, with the caption “The glasses are good enough.”
In this photo Cavill can clearly be seen displaying his shirt in Times Square. No one glances up, no one points.
Could it be that New Yorkers are just jaded? Perhaps, but perhaps the citizens of Metropolis are, too.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016 in theatres everywhere.
