Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in Zack Snyder’s superhero films, pranked Will Smith at San Diego Comic-Con International 2016 over the weekend.
While the latter star, who was promoting David Ayer’s new villain ensemble film Suicide Squad, was signing autographs, Cavill approached him for a photo, wearing a Guy Fawkes mask (seen in V for Vendetta). Scores of people attending the annual pop culture convention wear costumes.
As they posed, Cavill then removed the mask from his face, which Smith recognized after a delay of several seconds and after the photo was already snapped, spurring the star to bust out his trademark hearty laugh.
Cavill posted a video of the prank on his Instagram page Saturday.
