Daily Planet Clark IMO is a crucial part of the Superman mythos. A big part of the appeal of superheroes is the wish fulfillment aspect, where a seemingly meek, ordinary individual is revealed as an ass-kicking demigod. The secret identity keeps the hero down-to-earth and relatable.

When we only see Superman and not Metropolis Clark, for me, ironically, it makes me start to see Superman the way a lot of non-fans do - too powerful, bit of a bland personality, etc. Clark deepens the character and makes him seem more human.

I believe we will see Clark plenty in this upcoming film.
