SUPERMAN Set Photos Reveal David Corenswet As Clark Kent...And It's Not What We Expected - Possible SPOILERS

Yesterday saw us finally get a first look at David Corenswet suited up as the Man of Tomorrow on the set of Superman, and the actor has now been spotted as Clark Kent! However, it's not what we expected...

We thought a first look at Cat Grant was going to be it for Superman set photos today. Instead, it seems nearby photographers were saving the best for last as we now have a shot of David Corenswet as Clark Kent!

Typically, the Man of Steel disguises himself with a pair of glasses and a slight change in hairstyle; in Christopher Reeve's case, his smartly combed hair was replaced with the now-iconic "Superman curl."

Filmmaker James Gunn appears to have taken inspiration from Superman: The Movie, albeit on a somewhat more extreme level. As you'll see below, the DCU's Clark has a messy mop of curly hair to better disguise himself. With it covering most of his forehead, we can now better believe that his colleagues at The Daily Bugle wouldn't recognise him as Superman.

This isn't necessarily what we expected but it suggests Corenswet will completely change his physicality as Clark Kent, a creative decision made by Reeve which no actor has really been able to successfully replicate since (though Brandon Routh gave it a good go in Superman Returns).

Also of note is the fact Clark is wearing round glasses which appear very similar to those worn by, you guessed it, Reeve's version of the reporter.

Take a closer look at Superman's Clark Kent below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

Superman tells the story of Superman's journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas. He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.

David Corenswet is playing the Man of Steel, while Rachel Brosnahan has been tapped to star as Lois Lane.

The cast includes Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner, Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho, and Gabriela de Faría as The Engineer.

Supporting characters include Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, Wendell Pierce as Perry White, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, Pruitt Taylor Vince as Pa Kent, Neva Howell as Ma Kent, Beck Bennett as Steve Lombard, Mikaela Hoover as Cat Grant, Christopher MacDonald as Ron Troupe, and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor.

Milly Alcock is also expected to make a cameo appearance as Supergirl before taking flight in her own movie, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.

Superman is currently set to be released in theaters on July 11, 2025.

@Malatrova15 - Homeboy got a poodle on his head! 🤣
Biggums - 6/25/2024, 9:17 PM
@Malatrova15 - I'll admit. That's a realistic take on his disguise*
Malatrova15 - 6/25/2024, 9:27 PM
@Feralwookiee - almost like a reularnpoochie
CaptainFlapjaks - 6/26/2024, 4:03 PM
@Feralwookiee - everywhere he goes, he can sleep comfortably cause he has a pillow for hair.
RegularPoochie - 6/25/2024, 3:51 PM
Damn, that's actually pretty awesome.
lazlodaytona - 6/25/2024, 4:06 PM
@RegularPoochie - I agree. I'm digging the mop-top. It's one more way to keep his identity secret besides just the suit he where's to work in, the hat he sometimes wears, and the epic glasses. Plus the fact he can handle two different personas is a major plus.
grouch - 6/25/2024, 4:26 PM
@RegularPoochie - damn, no it isn't lmao
Malatrova15 - 6/25/2024, 9:05 PM
@grouch - it is..stop being contrarian

I mean that’s a good Clark Kent disguise tbf 🤷‍♂️
GhostDog - 6/25/2024, 3:55 PM
@FireandBlood - for real. Superman is the world’s greatest actor. Clark Kent reporter is a masterclass performance
FireandBlood - 6/25/2024, 3:58 PM
@GhostDog - Exactly and idk about everyone else but I love me some bumbling fool Cark Kent. Shit is jokes.
RegularPoochie - 6/25/2024, 4:02 PM
@FireandBlood - I love it! Why to have comedic relief side character, when the man himself can be the one, lol.
Goldboink - 6/25/2024, 4:21 PM
@GhostDog -
Clark Kent is his alter ego but in real life he's Supes. The exact opposite of most other characters in disguise.
emeraldtaurus - 6/25/2024, 4:26 PM
@FireandBlood - Where's the big blue Super-suit collar??? Must mean the Super-suit is nanotechnology.
FireandBlood - 6/25/2024, 4:31 PM
@emeraldtaurus - Good point… 🤔
mck13 - 6/25/2024, 8:59 PM
@emeraldtaurus - Looks like its made out of NERF material. GUNN sucks at costumes & it shows!
CaptainFlapjaks - 6/26/2024, 3:57 PM
@FireandBlood - its funny. Gunn managed to make clark kent look like he might not actually be superman. An incredible feat, honestly.
CaptainFlapjaks - 6/26/2024, 3:58 PM
@FireandBlood - we better get some "by gollies" and "great caesars ghost" in the movie
CamtonoOfBeskar - 6/25/2024, 3:54 PM
Be honest, grown men don't have haircuts like that.
Malatrova15 - 6/25/2024, 4:03 PM
@CamtonoOfBeskar - grown men ? Weird tastes man
RegularPoochie - 6/25/2024, 4:03 PM
@CamtonoOfBeskar - tou would be amazed that they actually do, lmfao!
SpideyQuad - 6/25/2024, 4:11 PM
@CamtonoOfBeskar - I think there's more to this picture that we could understand at this point. If you closely look at his hair it almost looks like a blatant wig over the top half of his head. Maybe a bully put it on him? Gunn is notorious for throwing out false leads. By the time you get to the movie you realize between his photos and videos (trailers) are a hodgepodge meant to mislead. I think it's genius actually because we get our fix and it doesn't ruin the movie.

Got some All Star Superman Clark Kent vibes off of Gunn's version of reporter Clark:

I'm very happy he has a secret identity in this and Lois will not know that Clark is Superman. It is about time the secret identity came back.

HermanM - 6/25/2024, 4:22 PM
Clark will try to hit Lois with that skibidi riz but she only goons for Superman.
mck13 - 6/25/2024, 8:54 PM
@HermanM - The suit looks like it's made out of NERF football...bulky..when he bends or twist it looks awkward. No muscle tone, he comes off a bit chubby & the Clark look is DUMB! This movie will be funny/goofy with Lex & Otis as comic relief. Gunn fans will support this crap of a film & take on Superman regardless. The color is comic accurate but that's it. It doesn't look alien like it came from could his mother make this???!!! The belt & red panties are weird...the red panties was from the '30s strong man look...doesn't work anymore. SMFH This movie will FAIL!!

@GhostDog - Gunn's a director. He probably does well enough he can afford a chef to do his cooking for him. But since they're filming, they typically have catering all day.
Origame - 6/25/2024, 5:13 PM
@DeadClunge - thanks for confirming you're 14.
