But he didn’t just do it DO IT. He did it in full costume!
The video, released by Zack Snyder’s film production company, Cruel and Usual Films Inc. features Henry Cavill and his co-star Amy Adams taking on the ice bucket challenge on the set of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”. In the video, Henry Cavill can be seen donning his full costume while Amy Adams appears to be wearing the outfit for her role as Lois Lane too.
After Amy nominated all of her siblings to do the challenge, the 2 get doused with the ice cold water by the crew members. Although both of them have been nominated to do the challenge, the crew members continued to dump the ice water on Henry 6 times over!
Wait, what? Yes, ladies and gentleman, that’s because he was nominated repeatedly to do the challenge by Mike Carlin, Mark Hughes, Alain Moussi, Luke Evans, and Batman! Benedict Cumberbatch too was seen taking on the challenge several times in the span of just one video. But we digress.
The result? Well, even Superman himself can’t stand the cold! Watch the video below:
On a serious note, the Ice Bucket Challenge is part of a campaign to raise money in fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a fatal neurodegenerative disease that attacks the brain and the spinal cord. As of 26th August (Tuesday), the ALS Association has received a whopping USD88.5 million in donations as compared to USD2.6 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 26). These donations have come from existing donors and 1.9 million new donors.
These people are testaments to that:
- The “Heavenly Kings” of the East Andy Lau and Jay Zhou.
- K-Pop idols Super Junior’s Siwon, Donghae, and Eunhyuk.
- The world’s top DJs/producers e.g. Tiesto, Calvin Harris, Nicky Romero, and more.
- Bosses of their league Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Microsoft’s Bill Gates.
- Members of the DC and Marvel Cinematics Universe.
- The “Young & Dangerous” members.
- Our favourite YouTubers.
- Korean celebrities.
- Anthony Carbajal, the 26-year-old real-life ALS patient.
Let’s not forget that whether or not you get called out to take on the challenge, you can also make a donation to the ALS Association here.
