Henry Cavill, the star of upcoming Batman v Superman who has become slightly less attractive since debuting his opinions on catcalling, traveled to Times Square in New York to make a point about the most pathetic disguise in superhero history: Clark Kent's glasses. That says a lot, because almost all superheroes have awful disguises. That green hood should fool no one, Oliver Queen.

Dressed in a Superman shirt and sporting his biceps, Cavill chilled out in the famously busy area—where no one recognized him.

Dear Doubter, The glasses are good enough. Regards, Superman #WhoWillWin #Superman

Dear Doubter,
The glasses are good enough.

It appears that Cavill managed to visit Times Square while it was miraculously empty. Plus, the Instagram video is heavily edited, making it little wonder that he wasn't mobbed.

OR, there's always the chance that no one wants to see Batman v Superman and the world would like a breather from superhero blockbusters. In all likelihood, it's simply that despite his moderate Hollywood success and coifed hair, Henry Cavill isn't really famous enough for people to come running at him in the street.

But the fact that he put himself in that situation—that makes him a real hero.
