Great pics from Kimber Dolan!
I'm assuming Clark is fresh from the farm to the big city in these photos. AWESOME!
It's beyond speculation but he's holding something with his right hand in the first pic. Could it be glasses?

Clark Kent seems to be a freelance reporter or going for his interview judging from these latest pics.

so they just get rid of the glasses altogether and go with some sort of new power that messes with people's perception?

I imagine Clark saying something about riding a bike to be more economical.

Well imho, the HUGE problem with that notion (assuming if that's how they're going about it) is that Clark has been exposed without his glasses to many people for a long time, so by the time he dons the suit and gets in front of the camera as Superman, how in the hell is he going to convince those same people that he's a different guy?

Cavill looks like a cool up-to-date CK, in a modern world of today. He looks so cool! I AM missing the glasses through. I'm pretty sure that he'll get them at some point. I mean, the glasses are a pretty iconic part of the CK look. You can't just switch them out with a simple tie (even though it does look cool too).

Good thing he did too, otherwise now, we would probably have Brandon Routh in this movie or Joe whats his face from True Blood.

Well, then it is a good thing "Supes" is not the one wearing them (that WOULD look flawed). It's Clark Kent who's wearing them... And they should stay!

Superman_200.

I know what you mean, when you say that this pic looks familiar. I thought so to... Then I came to realize something. Henry looks A LOT like Christopher Reeve in this particular picture! And I'm loving it!

Overall, I think Henry Cavill looks so cool, both as Superman AND as Clark Kent! I am missing those glasses though. I know I know. They want to make this CK a modern day CK, and so they should. But may I point out that GLASSES are more popular today than ever before! And CK should keep his! :-(

I can accept if this is the case. Besides, if this is an yearly point in the movie, where he hasn't even become superman yet, then it's definitely ok.

Uhh, what's the problem here? These are pics. AND, if he does have some Reeve over his act in certain scenes, then it would be more than ok with me. But I don't think you have anything to worry about. Cavill will be his own superman. An within the movie it self, I don't think you'll be thinking, damn, he looks like Reeve! That was Routh, not so much Cavill.

With the alien design of his costume and his go get em attitude in metropolis, I have a feeling this film will have some of those superman year one aspects. Cavill is even of a shorter posture than most of the past interpretations.

Cavill looks focused, I know he will deliver.

The likeness is uncanny. But to me, I don't see it so much as him being compared to Reeve, as it is him being compared to Superman. Reeve's likeness pretty much changed the face of the character, so for Cavill to look like Reeve just means he looks like Superman.

If this movie shows us a CK who is working hard to be a great journalist, and show's us a great introduction of his working at the DP, I might have to jizz. We have had small introductions at the DP, in the Reeve's movies, Lois and Clark, and the dismal smallville(intentional small letters), but to see his introduction to the great metropolitan newspaper, as a young, excited reporter, would really excite me.

That would be too cool. A youngish, hard working, idealistic Clark, who impresses the Powers that Be at the DP, might seal the deal for me.

At least Henry looks great.

I also love that if Clark is just a journalist trying to make it in the big city, that he seems to be doing it like any other journalist, and he doesn't seem to be using his superpowers to get ahead in this world. Would be a small, but nice touch.

I think his resemblance to his onscreen birth mother is pretty uncanny. He really does look like he could be the biological son of of Julia Ormond and Russell Crowe.

I'll reserve comment on the lack of glasses until it's official if they're gone or not.

He looks more like Superman as Clark from those pictures.
