With production set to begin on Man of Steel 2, a.k.a. Batman vs. Superman, Henry Cavill may have gotten himself into trouble with a certain community.
Cavill, who will reprise his role as Superman in Man of Steel 2, allegedly had an awkward encounter with some members of the deaf community in Detroit recently. The actor was at a bar with his trainer when he became involved in a huge misunderstanding with a group of deaf friends.
Eyewitness Adrean Mangiardi was at the bar during the incident and told Celebuzz all about what went down.
"He was minding his business with his trainer. My friend asked for a napkin near Henry, that's what caused a whole misunderstanding," Mangiardi explained.
"He got the napkin for my friend and said something, but he's deaf so he got upset. . . Henry was saying 'say your words' to my deaf friend, but he never heard it so that made Henry upset," the eyewitness said. "Henry thought he had a mouth full of food."
Word about the incident reportedly spread throughout the bar and ultimately got back to Cavill, who then apologized to those involved.
"At the end of the night while the bar was closing, Henry came up to us, the Deaf Wolfpack, and shook hands with us, including the one who asked for napkin," Mangiardi said. "He apologized and made some basic gestures. I'm sure he learned his lesson by jumping [to] his conclusion with us. I hope the next time he bumped into us, he will respect the deaf culture and appreciate us."
Cavill may be more careful and understanding around locals after the incident. News of Cavill's awkward encounter comes before Man of Steel 2 shooting begins in Michigan. The actor has reportedly been training through the holidays and bulking up for his heroic role.
Man of Steel 2 is scheduled for release in theaters on May 6, 2016.
