Aug. 19--Monogrammed shirts are apparently back in.

Henry Cavill was spotted Monday outside Detroit's old Wayne County Building wearing a dark cape that revealed a glimpse of the big old "S" from his costume for "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice."

The Twitterverse was agog with the photos of Cavill trying to hide most of his Superman outfit that were posted at and picked up by Team Cavill members everywhere.

Team Affleck, meanwhile, remained focused on the video of him taking the Ice Bucket challenge in his "Detroit City" t-shirt from Pure Detroit.

The old Wayne County Building is a popular spot for movie productions that's been used for everything from HBO's "You Don't Know Jack" to Hilary Swank's "Conviction."

And, now, for "Batman v. Superman," which is filming in and around Detroit and set to be released March 25, 2016.
