Watch Henry Cavill Prank Will Smith At Comic-Con

In the comics, it’s normally the villains who play tricks on the heroes, but Henry Cavill decided to flip the script at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, by playing a joke on Will Smith.

The 33-year-old Brit, who plays Superman in the DC Comics movie universe, took to the show floor wearing a ‘V For Vendetta’ mask to prank Will Smith, who plays the villainous Deadshot in ‘Suicide Squad’, and the moment was captured on camera.

Cavill queues for autographs with the cast of ‘Suicide Squad’ disguising his incredibly recognisable face behind a mask. Upon reaching Smith, who happily signs an autograph for Cavill, they both pose for a photo and Cavill whips off his mask.

It takes a few moments before the Fresh Prince realises he’s been pranked, but when he finally recognises Cavill he erupts with laughter.

Elsewhere in the video you can see Cavill posing for photos with Batman and Superman fans who are totally oblivious to the fact they’re stood with the Man of Steel himself.

This isn’t the first time Cavill has proved to be a master of disguise. 

Earlier this year he hit New York’s Time Square to pose beneath gigantic ‘Batman v Superman’ billboards while wearing a Superman t-shirt, where he failed to get recognised by a single person.
