BATMAN V SUPERMAN Image: First Look at Henry Cavill as Clark Kent on the Set of the MAN OF STEEL Sequel

The first Batman v Superman image of Henry Cavill on the set has arrived.  Production is currently underway on director Zack Snyder’s follow-up to last year’s Superman reboot Man of Steel, though instead of a direct Superman sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is really more of a set-up for Justice League.  Regardless, one imagines Cavill’s Superman still plays a major role in the proceedings, and this new green screen-filled image gives us a first look at Cavill in costume as Clark Kent in the new superhero pic.  Admittedly it’s not incredibly revealing, but those itching to see anything and everything from the DC Comics adaptation will likely enjoy poring over every detail.  Confirmed: Clark Kent does carry an over-the-shoulder bag.

Hit the jump to check out the Batman v Superman image.  The film also stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Momoa, Holly Hunter, and Jeremy IronsBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens in theaters on May 6, 2016.

This new Batman v Superman image comes courtesy of the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund’s Twitter, which is an organization in the UK for currently serving and retired Royal Marines and their families.  Cavill is a supporter of the organization, leading to the unveiling of this new Clark Kent image.

While rumors have abounded about the Batman v Superman plot, we really don’t have much by way of firm info despite the fact that the film has been in production for over a month.  The title suggests that Ben Affleck’s Batman will go toe-to-toe with Supes, but I’m encouraged by this first-look image that suggests we’ll still follow some of the exploits of Clark Kent.

    Yup, that’s a picture of Henry Cavil alright.

  • Sweet Pea

    He looks a lot older. S’pose being Superman will age a guy…

    • GrimReaper07

      He looks exactly the same to me.

      • Sweet Pea

        Get your eyes tested Grim, he looks at least 57 months older and like he hasn’t slept well.

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        I’d have said 54 months older, but I’m not as good at reading facial wrinkles.

      • Sweet Pea

        The washed out look to his skin and slightly grey pupils is why I said 57 months, its what happens in those 3 extra months…

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        Dammit, rookie mistake. There’s still so much I need to learn!

      • No?

        The witnesses that can testify your claim have become a little less on his head

      • Stevenson Mahnn

        He looks more bald.

  • Person

    This movie will be terrible because I don’t like his trenchcoat and his navy blue shirt and his grey tie, and he must wear glasses at all times. Clark Kent must be dressed exactly like he was in the comics or this movie will be blasphemy.

    • Cody McGowan

      This movie will be terrible because it’s from the makers of Man of Steel.

      • Am I doing it right?

        This comment IS terrible because its from Cody McGowan

      • Cody McGowan

        That Cody guy is a dick.

      • Rob

        To be fair, even if you didn’t love Man of Steel you have to admit, the fact that the script seems to have been heavily rewritten by Chris Terrio and it’s not just Goyer on the screenplay has to help you sleep better. I mean, I’ve seen Argo many a time and every time it stays tense despite knowing what will happen.

      • Aquartertoseven

        Argo is an okay film at best, a lesser version of The Town and Heat, with poorly written, forgettable characters. So I don’t see Terrio being much better than Goyer.

      • bidi

        one is an academy award winner. the other made The Unborn…

      • Aquartertoseven

        That’s my point though, there’s no way on Earth that Argo deserved to win an Oscar for Best Picture.

      • World’s Finest Comments

        That’s just like, your OPINION man.

      • World’s Finest Comments

        It’s also from the makers of Argo…

    • GrimReaper07

      Though I agree that some of the things people complain about, I still have little confidence in this movie. What little I have is because of Affleck and Terrio.

    • gar216

      I see what you did there Person…

  • Cody McGowan

    Really? Brown, navy blue, and grey? So drab! I hope he snapped his stylist’s neck.

    • Sweet Pea

      Its actually very in; see LFW ’14. This outfit would undoubtedly have Lois giving Clark a supernosh in 10 seconds flat,

      • Cody McGowan

        Theme of LFW ’14: “Colors had their chance!”

      • Sweet Pea

        He’s a Daily Planet reporter. If they don’t look serious and washed out, no one will know they’re a serious newsman… Supes doesn’t go by day as Gordon Gekko. Altho saying that, that would be a great film!

      • Cody McGowan

        Well I guess he should dress right. At least that will give him some credibility. Especially since he somehow got a job as an investigative reporter at a major metropolitan newspaper in the 21st century without a college degree. (Or really any strong desire to investigate any of the weird crap about his life for 33 years.)

      • Sweet Pea

        Yeah, either Superman lied on his CV and the Daily Planet’s HR team ask for no references, or they must’ve been really desperate for reporters in Metropolis… Either way, I agree, Clark has obviously gone for the classic “I’m a grizzled journalist” look so not to raise any suspicions…

      • The Flobbit

        “On my world, greed means hope.”

    • gar216

      Isnt Clark kind of supposed to be “drab” and under the radar.

  • Drake

    Here’s to hoping…

  • gar216

    But… But… But without his glasses wont everyone notice that he is Superman?

    • DEADP00L

      No because in Snyderverse people are thicker than Bayformers universe.

  • DEADP00L

    Clark grows up on a farm…dresses like a guy from Italian cosmo.

    • bidi

      Metropolis changes people…

      • DEADP00L

        Put a farmers boy in a city and you get a farm boy in the city. Take that farm boy out of the city and that farm boy is still a farmers boy.

        It’s like saying a redneck stops being a redneck – it NEVER happens.

    Disappointing and terrible reboot of Superman in MOS. Fingers crossed and hoping good thoughts that BVS makes up for it. Being a big fan for over forty plus years of DC comics my expectations are even higher than the awful MOS. This is the big three and probably more of the top characters from DC,there is a lot to live up to. But if MOS is any indication of what BVS is going to be like then what a shame and a waste.

    • Sweet Pea

      I’ve been a fan of DC comics for sixty plus years. I win.

  • Papa Dragon

    Clark Kent wears glasses.

    • World’s Finest Comments

      Yeah, and taking them off for one goddamn second to pose for a charity photo is worse than murder.

      • Papa Dragon

        I doubt that is true.

      Pssst…it’s the lack of glasses

      • LEM

        You decoded my sarcasm!

      • http://www.JustPressPlay.net Lex Walker

        It wasn’t too hard, once I noticed the oddly obvious understatement I concluded that perhaps it was too obvious and thus might instead be a mocking remark. But I couldn’t be sure without intense analysis. So I sent it to the lab and sure enough: it was dripping with sarcasm residue. With that evidence in hand (not my typing hand): I replied.

  • The Flobbit

    Are we seriously meant to believe that NONE of the Earth’s 7 billion inhabitants recognize the cape-wearing, super distinctive, world-famous, statue-honored alien who saved the world…because he’s in normal clothes?

    I mean, no security footage? No interested Pentagon official? No nerd who recognizes the most famous person on the planet?

      ha chill out man. this isn’t a still from the movie. this is Henry Cavill just hanging out on set. i doubt they make him wear the glasses all fucking day

      • MCP

        For real, was thinking the same thing. This is just a pic for charity’s sake Floober!!

      • The Flobbit

        So you think that a change in costume to ANOTHER costume will make Clark Kent completely unrecognizable?

    • https://soundcloud.com/soup_herman soup, herman?

      I wouldn’t recognise Sweet Brown in the street and I’ve watched that “Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That” video like 50 times. Soo…I don’t think most people would recognise him. And also…who the f cares? The fictional conceit that an alien can fly is acceptable, but no-one recognising him isn’t? GTFO.

    looks like a white van man trying to sell you T-shirts.

    • Sweet Pea

      Lol! WTF!? The t-shirt sellers where you’re from are some slick dressed handsome mofo’s!

  • 97point6

    Does he wear underwear in this suit?

    • LEM

      He wears underoos.

    • Sweet Pea

      If they pan out, he has his underwear on over his trousers. They are going old school with a new twist on this superman, now it’s Clark who wears his underwear over his trousers instead of superman.

  • appolox

    Wow. He actually does look different from superman. I can now totally believe that no one notices him.

    Do people actually read the article or do they just look at the picture and go straight to the comment section?

      You’re a fool. Cavill looks great, and gave a great performance. Regardless of how you feel about MoS (me, I loved it though I admit it has flaws) Cavill was spot-on. Unlike “Superman Returns,” when I watched Cavill in MoS I didn’t think about Chris Reeve once.

      Cavill had the same charms that Reeve did, but he still made his Superman/Kal-El his own character. Nothing about Cavill’s performance, or MoS in general, was a knockoff of the Reeve/Donner films. And for that, I was grateful.

      I’m still on the fence about the sequel, because I hate that they’re shoehorning all these characters into it, I hate the casting of Eisenberg as Luthor (really, they meant “Heisenberg,” didn’t they?), and Goyer’s idiotic comments of late have been a real turnoff. But I am interested in seeing Cavill play “Clark Kent” — the disguise — anyhow.

      You didn’t get the memo? Superman Returns wasn’t edgy enough. It was just an actually cohesive story with attractive cinematography, coherent editing, entertaining and likable performances, and a hero that actually acts like a hero. Sure it challenged people’s notions of Superman like a grown up movie should (even one about a guy in blue tights). Sure it positioned itself as a sequel to a previously existing franchise in an overt way, rather than telling the origin story once again. And sure, it appropriated themes and story elements from the previous movies in order to re-evaluate an American icon’s place in the modern world. But he didn’t throw a punch! I just don’t know how to handle a movie where the protagonist doesn’t just neck-snap his problems away…

    Aww its Supes unware hes going to have the whole of the Justice League aiming for his Kryptonian ass ! :D

  • https://soundcloud.com/soup_herman soup, herman?

    This is promising. The bagginess of his clothes hides his physique, and I think he just looks like some ordinary bloke. Nothing memorably distinctive. If he is going to wear glasses, they need to be understated and practical, not fashionable, post-ironic nerd glasses. Looks good, but then my problems with Man of Steel had nothing to do with Henry Cavill, so expectations are still tempered.
