Someone over on the SuperheroHype forums just posted these new pictures of Henry Cavill on the set of Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel, and WHAT THE HELL, NO MANTIES!?!? WHOSE RESPONSIBLE THIS? It’s right there in the damn song: You don’t spit into the wind, you don’t tug off the old Lone Ranger, and YOU DON’T TAKE AWAY SUPERMAN’S MANTIES, YOU GODDAMNED TERRORISTS! Phew, deep breath, Mancini, we can do this. Okay, let’s think about this logically: He’s not wearing a cape in this picture either, but we know from the publicity photo they already released that he does wear a cape in the movie. So… maybe they took the manties off temporarily so that he wouldn’t get his biceps caught in them while he was doing punch stunts? Sure, why not? Seems plausible, right? I do it all the time. Guys like me and Henry, we have to take off our underpants before we do any serious punching, or else our thighs chafe.
SO WE MEET AGAIN, PROFESSOR MO-CAP!
Man of Blue Steel.
