zimmerman*Look who reportedly emerged from hiding to go into hero mode.

According to police in Florida, George Zimmerman, the recently-acquitted killer of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, was on hand to help rescue a person trapped beneath an overturned truck.

Sanford Police Department Capt. Jim McAuliffe says Zman “pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over” at a Florida highway intersection last week.

The incident marks the first time 29-year-old Zimmerman has been spotted in public since his acquittal.

Zimmerman has been and will likely continue to be in hiding since that acquittal.

“We have had an enormous amount of death threats,” his father told ABC. “George’s legal counsel has had death threats, the police chief of Sanford, many people have had death threats. ‘Everyone with Georgie’s DNA should be killed’ — just every kind of horrible thing you can imagine.”

In the meantime, speaking of heroes, an intrepid TMZ camera caught up with Superman, er, actor Henry Cavill at LAX and asked him his thoughts on Zimmerman.

The photog asked Cavill if it’s possible for a guy to be considered a “hero” even after millions of people branded him a villain for life?

It’s more than obvious Cavill didn’t want to be bothered with the dumbsh*t question. Check it out:
