Clark Kent has seen better days in these new Man of Steel set photos

10.06.2011

Alright, well I suppose in some dimension of extreme secrecy, these pictures could be considered spoilers, so approach with caution if you don't want to know ANY possible plot points from MAN OF STEEL.

These new snaps from the set (via SocialiteLife) show Henry Cavill in Clark Kent mode, but it appears more like he's channeling sad Keanu. He's looking pretty haggard with a beard and a wardrobe that implies he might be homeless.

Why exactly would Superman be homeless? I have no idea, but it might have something to do with his existential question of "Why am I here?" mentioned in the official synopsis.

So, how could Superman ever BE homeless? He could fly to a beach in Tahiti in an instant and construct himself a hut complete with a functional bar in under a minute. Why would he be roaming the streets? A loss of powers? Your guess is as good as mine.

On the subject of haircuts

On the "New Adventures of Lois and Clark", he had to go to that secret government lab to get a haircut.

"How does superman shave his beard?"

John Byrne covered this back in the 80's reboot. A mirror and his own heat vision does the job.

I actually remember that, and I remember thinking that it must be an awfully painful way to shave, even for Superman. Talk about razor burn!

I like the fact that I see these pics and don't immediately think Superman. If you randomly showed these and didn't say a word, who would know. I think thats a good thing.

He's probably pretending to be homeless to connect to "people" and find his motivation to be a hero.

The pictures looks great and are giving me a Batman Begins vibe which is what I think Man of Steel will be which would be amazing if it going to be.

Can't wait to see Superman in action again.

I'm just glad they're doing something different. Did we really need to see the same origin story for the billionth time?
I think this might run along side the New 52 storyline where Clark's a construction worker or something before he throws on the tights.

Why isn't his facial hair black? Superman doesn't have brown hair.

No power loss...

SPOILER ALERT:
This is the beginning of the film and then we flashback to his origin story, keeping you wondering how Supes got himself so unsuper until the 2nd Act.

Are they doing the new Superman origins? Ya know, the one from the DC reboot since the lawsuit? I don't know why but these pictures confuse me as to what they are doing with Supes. I just hope it's good.

Looks cool! It does have a Batman Begins vibe. And as answered earlier Supes uses his laser vision to maintain his body hair growth and grooming. He bounces the laser vision off a mirror to cut his hair and trim the beard. Its in one of the earlier John Byrne comics of the 80's.

Hmm...

...so... if this is Clark ... why isn't he wearing glasses? Is this the new disguise that'll hide his true identity? Clark has a beard and Superman is clean shaven?

Extra Tidbit

Superman looks himself in the mirror, and shoots laser beams through his eyes and uses the reflected beams to shave...
