Our latest Superman Henry Cavill posted a short, funny video to Instagram that shows him roaming around Times Square without getting noticed, even when he’s standing under a huge poster of himself.
But don’t cry for him Argentina. It appears the Man of Steel has reached the perfect amount of fame—just enough to get paid, but not enough to be noticed.
The knee-jerk reaction to this might be about how very NYC it is for us to not notice an actual celebrity in our midst, but the larger commentary here is much more positive. How cool that Cavill can just be a regular dude! He seems to be having fun with this instead of stomping around like a baby man demanding to be noticed.
I’ll keep this nugget in mind while I watch him whoop ass on Ben Affleck in Batman vs. Superman next week.
