Just another superhero wannabe hangin' out in Gotham.
That's what everyone who rushed past a Superman T-shirt-clad Henry Cavill apparently thought as Henry hung out in front of a massive ad for "Batman v Superman" billboard in Times Square this week.
The actor shared a chuckle-inducing video of his anonymous hang on Instagram on March 19, captioning the clip, "Dear Doubter, The glasses are good enough. Regards, Superman."
The crack was a reference to the notion that Clark Kent's glasses might not be enough of a disguise to distinguish him from Superman.
But as Henry proves in the video, even a ripped superhero celeb need not disguise himself in New York's bustling midtown.
Between mugs in front of his own movie poster, Henry stops inside a Starbucks, his jacket hanging open to reveal the Superman insignia on his shirt, and continues to be totally ignored.
And maybe that's how he likes it.
The 32-year-old "Tudors" alum recently told the Sunday Times he gets frustrated when female fans show their affection for him in public by whistling, cat calling or offering booty calls.
"I mean, if a girl shouts something like, 'Oy, love, fancy a shag?' to me as I walk past, I do sometimes wonder how she'd feel if a builder said that to her," he said, before acknowledging that he "wouldn't feel physically threatened, as she might."
The larger problem, it seems, is when those "shag" offers turn up while Henry's out and about with his 19-year-old girlfriend, Tara King.
Henry says he has heard some particularly unsavory things from passers by regarding their interest in his good looks.
"I don't mind it," he said, "unless I'm with my girlfriend and someone is being complimentary to me in order to disrespect her."
While Henry tests the waters of superhero recognition among New Yorkers, his "Batman v Superman" costar, Ben Affleck, is more focused on maintaining his Batman persona around his 4-year-old son, Samuel.
On the March 16 edition of "Ellen," the father of three opened up about how cool Samuel thinks it is that his dad is Batman and has carte blanche access to the Batcave.
It did take a little coaxing to convince Ben's son that Henry was Superman, though.
"He came to the set. He was a little bit suspicious, too. He was like, 'Is that the real Superman?','" Ben recounted.
"Yes, That's more or less about as real as it gets," Ben told Samuel. "That's the real Superman."
