It only takes a pair of glasses to separate Clark Kent from Superman, and while it might be unbelievable to some, it has become a fact of mainstream pop culture. Given that the flying superhero has been around since 1938, most were willing to let it go, but it seems that there are still some dissenters unwilling to let this detail go.
But Henry Cavill, who reprises his role as Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, was out to prove that glasses really are enough to separate the journalist from his powerful alter ego. In a video posted on Instagram, Cavill walked around New York City's Times Square wearing his Superman T-shirt. He stood under a billboard for the upcoming movie, walked into a Starbucks and flashed his famous logo outside of a burger joint.
No one noticed him.
"Dear Doubter, The glasses are good enough. Regards, Superman," he captioned the video. He included the hashtags #WhoWillWin and #Superman.
See, even Superman himself thinks they work perfectly fine.
