Henry Cavill does his best Clark Kent on the Man of Steel set

Sep. 16, 2011by: Niki Stephens

Anyone wanna go ahead and complain about his lack of black-rimmed glasses now? You know you want to. I'm not. The classic glasses will make an appearance at some point.

We've seen Henry Cavill suited up as Superman and now we get to see him as Clark Kent. I'm really curious as to how well this role is going to fit him. When anyone takes on the role of a beloved superhero, everyone is a little skeptical when an actor is finally cast. We'll just have to wait and see.

Check out the photos below. The last one is particularly amusing.

The more pics I see of this man on set the more excited I get for the movie. I loved Brandon Routh, but in all honesty this guy looks more like my ideal Superman. But thats just like, my opinion.

I'd imagine this is pre-Daily Planet job Clark having just returned from Africa. In the BIRTHRIGHT storyline this movie appears to draw from he doesn't don the glasses until after moving to Metropolis after globe trotting.

I guess in this film Cavill will play both younger Smallville Clark and Metropolis Clark, unlike Superman the movie where you had 2 different actors. If thats the case the lack of glasses makes sense.

He looks like Clark Kent

If I had no idea who was cast for this movie and saw these pics somewhere else, I would've thought of Clark Kent right away.

Wait, is this the Mullet Superman from the 90s? Awesome. I kinda like Cavill's Clark Kent look. But yeah, where is his glasses? Did he get a LASIK surgery or something?

I actually do get that "Clark Kent" vibe from these pics. Still waiting for a teaser trailer to really see how well Cavill fits as Superman. Still wish they would have brought Routh back, but there's nothing that can be done about that now. Hoping for the best from this film.

Physiscally he is the best superman thus far as far as looks on build and stature, but now we just simply have to wait and see about the performance part

Would he even need to pedal?

I never thought about Superman riding a bike before, but he obviously is able to propel hiimself through the air somehow, so he could surely just propel the bike without having to pedal it.

As long as it doesn't lead to an E.T moment, I'm down with that theory.

2nd pic looks like Tom Welling

Why didn't they just use Welling? I am skeptical about this film, but hoping for the best.

I think this movie will probably be great, but it seems that it's almost like the last 3 seasons of Smallville made into a film. When I see this image the first thing I thought of was Smallville.

just explain to me how...

no one will notice him as being both Clark and Superman. Nothing bothered me more in the originals when he would take his glasses off and then Lois Lane would recognize him. So now he wont even wear glasses. So my friedns wouldnt recognize me if I put on some silly suit? What does the suit do, put them in a trance? All the crap they give Bale over his voice (which has to be different than his normal one) and here dude isnt even trying to hide himself, makes no sense.

I will not be seeing this film. I'm just a Superman fan. He's just a cheesy character. His friends can't tell its the same person, glasses or no glasses? Very lame.

I dunno, he looks awfully skinny. All that padding on his suit really shows when you compare it to these pics.
