Well it could be any number of things.

Maybe something bad happened and he feels HE is too dangerous.

Maybe something bad happened and now he's just brooding.

Maybe nothing bad happened, but he's just been on the move for a while because he's afraid of staying in the same place too long and people asking too many questions.

Maybe he's deliberately trying to see what life is like for different people.

Maybe he's a journalist investigating bad conditions for oil rig workers (and it's these bad conditions that lead too an explosion).

Who knows?

We really know next to nothing of the plot. It's kind of exciting though

Really, all I'd like to settle my mind is a pic of Clark with glasses. Because right now, there's this possibility he might not have them, and if that's true it will have a big impact on how I feel about this film and how I approach it.

'Why do I find all of this so horrible to explore?
Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
