Zack Snyder made some pretty controversial decisions with Superman that didn't sit well with the DC fandom at first but eventually grew accustomed to. One aspect about the character that Snyder drastically altered was his costume, from giving him a new emblem to removing the classic red trunks which has been a part of the character's iconic look since his inception in 1938.

Longtime fans were obviously pressed about it at the beginning but some folks thought it was a breath of fresh air and over the course of his DCEU run, the mighty Kryptonian, not even once has sported the red trunks. However, it turns out that Henry Cavill is actually down to giving the Man of Steel some classic update.

Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the British actor said: "It was a bit of a hangover from the strongman of the '20s, or something. And I thought that, actually, it had potential to work. I mean, maybe not exactly those ones," The Witcher star joked. "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."

The red trunks, while a classic part of Superman's costume tends to look goofy in live-action form and I totally get why Snyder decided to ditch it, especially given the fact that initially, the DCEU had a much more serious tone to it. Now, whether Cavill ever incorporates the red trunks to Supes' DCEU suit remains to be seen. Heck, we're not even sure if he'll ever return as Clark Kent so...

Meanwhile, Henry Cavill is set to return as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher Season 2.
