Bruce can still be 'new on the scene' even if he's a little bit older than Clark.
I think the ideal age for this new Bruce would be early-to-mid 30s, and there are a number of actors - both relative unknowns and relatively to extremely recognizable names - who fit that bill, such as Sam Witwer, Sam Worthington, Jake Gyllenhaal, Gael Garcia Bernal, Robbie Jones III, Selwyn Ward, Luke Evans, and Matt Bomer.
