MAN OF STEEL: Zack Snyder Says This Version Of Clark Kent Isn't "Fully Realized"
We've seen plenty from Superman, but fans have wondered how exactly his alter ego Clark Kent would be handled in this movie -- will we see the bumbling, glasses wearing version? Read on to find out what director Zack Snyder has to say..
The embargo has lifted on the Man Of Steel set visits so even though some of the info and details will be out of date, expect a few new tidbits here and there -- such as the following: How exactly will Clark Kent be handled in the movie? Obviously we've seen Superman out of costume as Clark, but what about the mild mannered civilian disguise he adopts once he begins working at the Daily Planet? All previous movie incarnations went with the awkward, glasses wearing office nerd type, but Snyder says they have gone a different route here, and suggests there's plenty of room for development of the character.
I’ll only say that I think in a lot of — well, definitely in the movies — he always jumps straight from childhood to Clark. Like, he jumps from sort of his teenage version of himself to the adult version of himself. Frankly, The Daily Planet Clark, that happens pretty quick. I just think that our Clark, he’s not fully realized and I think — by the way, that’s huge information — but I think that’s the big difference. That’s why there’s this talk about who Clark is. In a lot of ways, the movie really is about the why of Clark, not to say that this kind of bumbling — I don’t want to call him bumbling — his mocky, nerdy Clark is… But that’s not the Clark that we went after or are going after. We’re going after sort of a different, there’s a different take on Clark, how Clark is.
And what about those glasses? When asked how long he spent searching for the right pair, Snyder replies: "The ones that he may or may not wear could’ve taken or may not have taken some time to find. [Laughs]". For much more from Snyder click the link back to Collider below.
