Has anyone seen this new TV spot? Looks pretty good! (sorry I don't know how to embed it here).

Answering my own post. From looking at the TV spot and the part of him floating in the air I do not think we are getting a CGI Superman like in Superman Returns...at least it won't be as obvious.

That shouldn't be too hard; Even O.J. wasn't that obvious.

Regarding Clark and his glasses, there were set photos of Henry wearing a suit with glasses.

Cavill does seem to follow Hugh Jackman's workout routine. He could have been a good replacement for Wolverine.

I remember seeing that. I thought I saved the photo to my computer but I didn't and now I can't find it online.

For a new version? I don't know if having two over six feet tall Wolverines in a row would fair (for the die hard fans).

I remember those, but I think they were just photoshoots the actors did for various magazines, and aren't actually how Clark and Lois will look in the movie. Especially because they were looking WAY too sharp and stylish to be any kind of newspaper reporter.

Though he's not wearing glasses here, he looks close to Clark Kent the mild-mannered reporter.

I think he will only assume his Clark Kent newspaper reporter identity at the very end of the film. The way I see it, in this film, Smallville Clark is his true identity, Superman is his job, and news reporter Kent is his disguise. Especially when it's true that Lois knows his identity by the end of the film. Then he only needs reporter Kent to fool the rest of his colleagues.

That is how I see it too. I like how Smallville approached it and having Lois know that Clark is Superman.

SPOILER ALERT: Superman saves the day.
It would never happen but for the shock value, it would funny if the film ended with him cutting her head off and declaring himself Lord and Emperor of the planet - simply for the WTF reaction of the audiences.
Remember the end of Sucker Punch? I didn't see that coming either. There were a few comic stories and even the recent Injustice Gods Among Us video game where Superman had enough of the games and decided to run the world.
If that happened, he'd have to wear the superpope hat.

Maybe during his world-roving years he's picking up experience as a freelancer before landing his big job at the Planet.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Here are three videos focusing on Superman's powers (it's mostly footage we've seen before from the movie, but there's some commentary from the cast and filmmakers and there's a really good new shot in the flight video that's clearly inspired by Superman: Birthright):

Well there were promo shots for magazines, and then there was an actual set photo of Clark in the suit and wearing glasses.

Superman: Birthright is probably one of the most influential pieces of source material they took from, the other being Superman: Secret Origin. One more month to go!
