Isn't that how it supposed to be?
I could be wrong, not sure what the creators vision of Clark really is. Just thought that Clark is always intentionally more bumbling to disguising his ID
Routh's Superman and Clark Kent: 5/10- With Christopher Reeve at the helm and prime of his career, you'll definitely believe a man can fly. He had the perfect charm and earnestness to be sold as the 80's Superman, and the bumbling but astute Clark Kent. He was the perfect embodiment of the campy but adorable Superman and Clark Kent. He is to Superman, what RDJ is to Tony Stark/Iron Man.
Cavill's Superman and Clark Kent: TBD- Severely underwhelming, and the fact that Bryan Singer made this a homage to Donner makes it harder for him to live up as the current era's Superman. A crappy situation if you will. I also didn't like how stiff he was and overall I was never sold on the feelings he expressed, especially when Luthor stabs him with the Krypto-nife. I mean he didn't really look like he was in pain...The writing for this character was also atrocious, and goes against what we've come to know as an ideal Superman, comics AND cinematics.
Let's see what he has to offer!
The way I understand it, is Clark Kent trying to act completely different than Superman (Superman: Very Serious, Clark Kent:Very Goofy), so even if he puts on glasses. NO one will recognize him as Superman, even if they see a resemblance they will think it's completely stupid because these two person have complete OPPOSITE personalities.No it's not supposed to be like that. Donner Clark made it too goofy and OTT.
The only comics I can think of that also had the OTT bumbling and goofy Clark is All Star Superman and John's last Superman run (his Up up and Away had a much better Clark portrayal).
Clark should be mild-mannered and humble, but never should he be too goofy and bumbling. IMO of course.
This is kind of not fair because Superman The Movie paved the way. Superhero films are a normal thing now. The 70's were before many of the current fans were born, and some of the Luthor and Otis stuff seems camp now a days.
