We’re just a little over a week away from the theatrical release of Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. Of course with the release date so close, fans can only imagine if this will be the time we’ll finally see some of the most iconic heroes of all time in their most definitive forms. According to Henry Cavill, you can at least expect to see Clark Kent that way.
Henry Cavill recently sat down with inSing, and during the interview he made this statement about the version of Clark Kent we’ll see in the film:
“It’s more the Clark Kent from the comic books as opposed to the Richard Donner, Christopher Reeve version of Clark Kent. While that character is very much beloved, I feel that this Clark is more in line what that who is a journalist. He’s a reporter. There’s less of that light touch, less of that comedic touch to his performance or his presentation to the world. For Clark, there are very serious issues. Certainly, in this movie, he’s trying to get Perry to say, ‘Look, this Batman guy is a bad guy! Let me tell the story about him!’ He’s trying to use his position as a reporter to make things better without having to resort to the cape. It’s interesting to see. There’s a more serious tone. There’s more presence of a place of importance as a journalist”
It looks as though they’re going to take a departure from Christopher Reeve’s version, in which Clark Kent was a clumsy, fumbling, and socially awkward journalist (all an act, of course), and try to match his characteristics and personality to the more serious tone that the film will be utilizing. We’ll just have to see if Cavill’s version of Clark Kent has the closest resemblance to the comics than we’ve ever seen.
Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled to release on March 25th, 2016.
