Who is Clark Kent? ‘Man Of Steel’ Evasive Regarding Supes Alter-Ego

May 31, 2013

This gives me hope. The key to Superman is getting the relationship between Superman and Clark right. There is more than one way to do it well, but you have to pay attention to it. George Reeves made Clark our pal, somebody who shared this secret with us. Chris Reeve made it this great prank he was playing on everybody (prompting a pretty strong critique in Kill Bill). Dean Cain switched things and made Superman the disguise “Superman is what I can do, Clark is who I am.” Brandon Routh got stuck aping Christopher Reeve and doing it poorly, and it failed because there was no heart. Tom Welling played it more or less like Cain, removing Superman almost entirely. In the end, the movie’s success will depend not on the special effects or the villain. What will matter is if somebody figured out a way to get people to care about Clark.
