While I agree that the 'hiding in plain sight' is a lot of the reason the glasses work, they are still neccesary for the disguise to be effective IMO.

The difference in hair colour is just lighting, and possible because of hair gel. And why the hell does Clark's beard colour affect ANY of what I was saying?

You've really gone off on a tangent here...

Did you really just ask why his beard color matters when I was stating that his hair color looks different? It isn't a tangent, it is all a part of the same question. Clark on the bike has black hair, but before that he I am not sure if he does or doesn't. His beard seems to be quite brown and his hair looks lighter. I would think a man's beard would match his hair color. So I am wondering if there is some sort of change. Possibly linked to his change of identity.

There's photos of Cavill as Clark on set wearing the trademark white shirt, gray vest and pants. Check the photo thread.



So no, he won't be Metropolis Clark towards the end. That's probably around the time Zod attacks the city.

So this confirms he is working at the DP and going around as the "Clark persona" how exactly? I am not saying it won't happen, but I am not sure how those photos confirm it.

Hmmm, there were rumors with those pics about the crowd looking towards something in the sky. So, I guess it's not from the end of the move.
And if that's indeed Metropolis Clark in that shot.

Doesnt prove anything yet though. I still dont think Clark puts on the glasses and becomes that persona until the very end. That's what I hope for myself. Would make a great and inevitable closing shot.

It was never confirmed that that was Clark/Henry in those shots. It was just speculation when those photos came out. It's very hard to tell.

The rumour was the crowd was looking up at Zod's ship, which is soon to attack Metropolis.

It could still very well be that the bike ride and Clark entering the Daily Planet and putting the glasses on is at the end of the movie.


And I don't think changing hair colour is part of the plotline. Clark always has dark hair, even if his beard is a lighter colour.

The person who took the pics confirmed it was Cavill. Im pretty sure. He/She, dont remember exactly, confirmed it on the Facebook page. They were shooting it right here in downtown Chicago. You can see Amy Adams and Lawrence Fishburne on the pics too. I almost went there to check the filming but was too busy that week.

Here's something interesting...

A screencap of Perry White from the recent trailer:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:


Supposedly, the girl running next to him is an actress by the name of Rebecca Buller.

If you look her up on IMDB, she's listed as playing a character named Jenny Olsen in MOS:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4839129/


What do you guys think? A relative of Jimmy's (sister, cousin, etc.), or have they actually changed/revamped the character and have given us a female version?

If they use her as Jimmy's female replacement, I hope it wasn't out of some feeling that they needed more main female DP characters. I mean, there's Cat Grant.

Yeah, even I think that Snyder and Goyer wouldn't have gone that far to change up the mythology for modern times. It's one thing to update things with changing the ethnic background of a character from the comics, but another to change their gender altogether.

WHOA. I wonder if that was on IMDB before the trailer. I wonder why they would do this? Superman's best pal is now a woman??

on a serious note, as long as they never even think about getting Justin Douchebag then I'm happy.

Remember when the DCnU first came out and Jimmy looked like that tool.....HORRIBLE!!!!

Jenny Olsen? Replacing an awkward (and sometimes annoying) nerdy guy with a good looking brunette? Please let it be true!

Thought about him, but honestly... he's too good of an actor to bog himself down to a franchise.
