Henry Cavill Pranks Will Smith with Very Convincing Comic-Con Disguise
Even the Man of Steel himself wanted to greet the cast of Suicide Squad
Superman definitely enjoys messing with the bad guys.
Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill wanted to meet the cast of Suicide Squad at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, but considering the struggles between their onscreen character, he had to be very stealth about it.
In a video shared on his Instagram on Saturday, Cavill donned a Guy Fawkes V for Vendetta mask to safely explore the Comic-Con floor without getting mobbed. He posed for photos and gazed around the displays before making his way over to the meet-and-greet table for Suicide Squad.
The 33-year-old actor asks Will Smith for a photo, lifting his mask to smile next to the unknowing Smith. When they talk after the picture, Smith realized the true identity of the fan and started to crack up.

Despite being a movie star himself, Cavill proceeded to make his way down the line and have the cast of Suicide Squad sign his t-shirt.
He captioned the video, “Best Comic Con yet. I got to be here for Justice League but couldn’t miss Suicide Squad.”
“This is the type of thing that, no matter how cool you think you are, your kids think you suck,” Smith, 47, shared at a Saturday panel. “This is like the first time where like I’m cool for real. The Suicide Squad, I don’t know what it is, but something about this idea and something about this cast has really captured something.”
Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5.
