Appearing on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” last night to promote the upcoming second season of “The Witcher”, Henry Cavill was asked about the Superman costume he wore for his films, and how he feels about the red trunks.
While Colbert does mockingly refer to them as “grandma panties”, he says he thought Cavill’s costume made Superman look “a little naked”.
Cavill correctly identifies the fact that the concept originated with the circus strongman look from the 1920s. Cavill reveals that he really liked his costume, but says that he would be open to the idea of the red trunks being added if he was ever to return to the role.
Season 2 of “The Witcher” premieres on Netflix on Friday, December 17.
