When "Immortals" star Henry Cavill stopped by Leno last night to promote the upcoming mythological action film, he had to expect that the late-night host would ask about his upcoming role as the new Superman in director Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" - specifically regarding Supes' inevitably "controversial" red underpants-less new look. Cavill's answer was nothing if not revealing, prompting Leno to retort: "I never got the underpants outside of the clothes anyway."

After watching the brief clip below, weigh in with your own thoughts on Superman's updated costume - love it? Hate it?

"Man of Steel" is slated for release on June 14, 2013. "Immortals" hits theaters this Friday.
