Henry Cavill Filming ‘Justice League,’ And Why He Can Walk The Streets Of New York Without Being Recognized

Henry Cavill has recently wrapped filming for Justice League in London, according to Morning News USA. The 33-year-old actor has been spotted out and about on the streets of London.

Jason Momoa recently took to Instagram to announce that Justice League finished filming in London, which triggered confusion in social media because it made Superman fans think that Warner Bros. ended its production of the movie.

But the production of Justice League starring Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Momoa then moved to Iceland to continue filming scenes for the upcoming blockbuster, which is expected to hit theaters over a year from now, on November 17, 2017.

Henry Cavill is the only major cast member of the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed blockbuster who isn’t attached to any other Hollywood project currently under production. Affleck (Batman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Momoa (Aquaman), and Ezra Miller (The Flash) are all busy filming for other projects.

Henry Cavill’s rival in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Affleck, is currently promoting his new film The Accountant, which hit theaters on October 14, while Gadot has ben involved in Keep Up, which was released on October 21.

That’s why Henry Cavill got to spend the remaining few days in London before going to Ireland. For the outing, Cavill opted for a Royal Marines Commando pullover and complemented his casual look with a hat.

Earlier this month, Henry Cavill took to Facebook to announce a giveaway of a Justice League T-shirt. In the clip, the actor is seen promoting the giveaway. Warner Bros. recently confirmed that Cavill will reprise his role of Superman in the Man of Steel sequel. While this is an active project by the studio, there have been no further details as to when they are planning to start filming the new Superman film.

Earlier this year, Henry Cavill proved that Superman’s disguise as Clark Kent (meaning no superhero suit and wearing glasses) is actually effective even in central New York City, according to Movie Pilot.

When Henry Cavill came on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night talk show earlier this year and shared that he had been on the streets of New York City and nobody recognized him, people were confused. They couldn’t believe that no New Yorker would recognize the disguised actor.

As if it wasn’t shocking already, Henry Cavill was also wearing a Superman T-shirt. And people started wondering why the actor, who rose to prominence thanks to his role of Superman, is not recognized on the streets.

There are two legitimate reasons. First, Henry Cavill’s first film appearance was in the early 2000s. But after that, he had been cast in unpopular TV projects that didn’t really made him stand out. Then the actor stunned everyone with his performance in 2013’s Man of Steel. So it’s fair to stay that nobody knew how Henry Cavill looks like until his role in the 2013 film about Superman. From 2007 through 2010, the actor was seen in his more or less prominent role of Charles Brandon Duke of Suffolk in The Tudors.

However, the historical drama certainly didn’t make Henry Cavill a nationally recognized celebrity. The second reason why people may not recognize Cavill on the streets is his ever-changing appearance. Every time Henry Cavill has appeared in a film or TV show, he looked different. He has been it all: bearded, clean shaven, brunette, blonde, with long hair, and short hair. But now that Cavill plays Superman, he sticks with pretty much only one look.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice grossed $873 million worldwide earlier this year.
