Colbert Sells Henry Cavill on Idea of Adding Outside Underwear to Superman Costume (Video)

Plus: Cavill reminds Colbert that he was not a fan of his Man of Steel casting

“It was a bit of a hangover from Strongman of the ’20s, or something. And I thought that, actually, it had potential to work. I mean, maybe not exactly those ones,” Cavill said laughing.

“The Witcher” star added: “I really loved my suit, I thought it was pretty cool. However, if it were to happen again, I would definitely be open to the idea of adding the trunks in some way, shape or form.”

Cavill also took this sitdown opportunity — his first-ever interview with Colbert — to remind Colbert that the CBS late-night host was not initially a fan of Cavill’s casting.

“I got to tell you, it still freaks me out when I hear your accent,” Colbert said. “Because you’re so believably an American to me… You’re the most American of all! You’re Superman!”

“Thank you very much, I appreciate that. That wasn’t always your sentiment though, was it?” Cavill said, with a knowing smirk.

To his credit, Colbert admits to mocking it on “The Colbert Report,” recalling, “I believe I made fun of the fact you had been cast as Superman. And I said, ‘We want a Superman not a Smashing Gent.’”
