I always thought about it as just hiding your own accent, when you're really putting on another one.

The man if steel facebook page seems to have pictures of Henry as Clark Kent, during down time, while not filming. Can't be sure, but he is wearing a shirt and tie, and NO GLASSES. I am hoping he isn't wearing glasses because it is down time, and not filming, because I am not sure how I would react if CK(and Henry, especially), didn't have glasses.

I'm really digging the Clark Kent look overall. It has a nice modern, business casual feel while also giving subtle hints to Clark's Smallville heritage with the plaid pattern on the shirt and what appear to be boots instead of dress shoes. I just hope and pray he's just not wearing the glasses since he is on break. I know some people have issues with the whole glasses disguise, but its classic, timeless, and unique.

If he doesn't have glasses, maybe it is because this is pre-Superman Clark Kent and that is why the costume has a distinct rural, working class element to it.

He's probably going for job interviews in Metropolis before he decides on the glasses.

i wonder if we don't see Metropolis Clark Kent till the end of the film.
like they take the movie a different way.
like if we get Kal-el, smallville clark, Superman.
Clark Kent of Metropolis, glasses wearing and all doesn't come in till the end.

kinda like Batman begins, we got Young Bruce, True Bruce, Batman and later got to see Drunk playboy Bruce.

Well if he's going around introducing himself as CK without the glasses it would be too much of a stretch if people didn't connect 2 and 2 later on when Supes is revealed.

Clark didn't wear his glasses when going for job interviews in Earth One. I suspect a little bit of inspiration from that book here.

The suit is very impressive. It will really help make Superman look super. He fills out well and the suit brings out the definition and shape with the padding in just the right spots. It is very good. Now Clark, if you see a side by side picture, will look much smaller than Superman. I think his Clark is going to look pretty different from his Superman.

Huh. Haven't read that one. Now I'm way more curious about what they are doing with the dual identity thing....

I should clarify that once he gets a job at the Daily Planet, he starts wearing the glasses.

That is one of the few comic books I ever read, I like reading origin stories more than the stories that pick up with the established character. I enjoyed that book, and I found it interesting that he goes to the Daily Planet to interview as Clark Kent without the glasses or any dual identity. Becomes Superman, and how come he comes back, now has the glasses and dual identity and no one says "Jesus, what happened to you? You looked great the other day when you came in and now you look like this, what happened?"

I hope this is him in between scenes. Can't imagine him not having glasses. Maybe he hasn't decided to wear them and create the reporter persona yet.

Well, from those set pics the other day, Superman's hair is parted now. Maybe Clark's slicked back hair comes with the glasses, who knows.

Saw a new Immortals TV spot on ESPN last night. This one (finally) had more of Cavill actually speaking and not just fighting. It was pretty long for a commercial.

Maybe they're going the contact lens route to update the character? Just before he switches into Superman he runs to the restroom to take out his contacts..

But really, I hope we see some glasses Clark Kent soon, and I'm surprised in how much bigger Cavill looks in the \S/ suit compared to his Clark. That's really stood out to me so far.

I saw a few more pics of him on the bike, and he's leaning forward with the shirt sleeves tightening on his arms, and his arms are looking pretty big.

Well I don't mean in the way that Cavill looks too small for Superman, but that set pics of him as Clark & Superman have him looking incredibly different, which would be great for the screen and the whole idea of being in disguise as Clark.
