A Closer Look At Metropolis And Henry Cavill As Clark Kent

Posted Wednesday, September 14th, 2011 02:00 pm GMT -4 by 0

We’ve seen Henry Cavill in the new reds and blues in his full Superman costume. Today we get a good look at Superman’s alter ego in some images of Cavill as Clark Kent. We also get better looks at some of the Chicago sets that are standing in for Metropolis. When we got images from the ‘Man of Steel’ set yesterday, I said that Chicago was doing a beautiful job standing in for the City of Tomorrow and, after seeing the images below, I stand by that remark wholeheartedly. It’s exactly how I picture Metropolis in my mind.

I love the “Unleash Your Alter Algo” poster. How very appropriate.

Chicago’s Union Station standing in for Metropolis Union Station.

Destruction inside Union Station. It looks like things heat up the moment Clark arrives in the City.

A better look… where are Clark’s trademark glasses?

Why doesn’t Clark have his glasses? I expect that, if these images reveal Clark’s few few moments in Metropolis (he IS at Union Station), he may have not come up with the disguise yet? I hope so because, Clark’s glasses get picked on as one of the worst disguises in comic-dom, but at least it’s something! Like this, everyone’s just going to yell “Look! Superman in a tie! …on a bike?”

For the full set of images, check out the ‘Superman: Man of Steel’ (2013) Facebook page.

‘Man of Steel’ is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Lawrence Fishburne, Michael Shannon, Christopher Meloni, and Antje Traue.

    He just doesn’t look American. British people have a different habit of facial muscular tension than Americans. This is especially noticable around the lips. He needs to relax his lip muscles so that his lips aren’t so scrunched up.

      well, in all fairness, he isn’t American. He’s Kryptonian.

          SO A BRITISH MAN LIVING IN AMERICA FOR LONG ENOUGH BECOMES AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. ALTHOUGH BEING BRITISH OF ORIGIN. SO THIS DISCUSSION IS UTTERLY POINTLESS, HENRY CAVILL COULD BE AN AMERICAN IF HE LIVED IN AMERICA LONG ENOUGH. SO HIM BEING BRITISH IS JUST AS IRRELIVANT AS SUPERMAN BEING KRYPTONIAN LIVING IN AMERICA.

    Chicago looks fantastic! The jet black hair is a bit much for Henry in these pictures, but he is an excellent actor and I am excited to see what he does with the role.

    Even without glasses Superman has the best disguise.  Because nobody would assume Superman has a secret identity, why would he when he’s Superman?  So nobody is looking at Clark Kent enough to notice or assume.  Not to mention Clark also wears clothes two sizes too big, slouches, blends in, and in some stories can tense his spine to appear almost a foot shorter.

    ONLY ONE PROBLEM… THEY USED CHICAGO FOR THE BATMAN FILMS. IN PICTURE 2 YOU CAN SEE THE BUILDING THEY USED AS WAYNE TOWER IN BATMAN BEGINS.
