In a recent Late Show appearance, host Stephen Colbert pitched guest Henry Cavill on having Superman bring back the underwear worn outside of the iconic blue supersuit. Although there are no immediate plans for Cavill to reprise the role, he said he would be “open” to the wardrobe tweak.
“[The underwear] was a bit of a hangover from the strongman of the ’20s,” said Cavill, while laughing at an image Colbert was holding up of an old-school Superman costume. “I thought that, actually, it had the potential to work. I mean, maybe not exactly those ones.”
Added Cavill, “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.”
