While he understands that there's no escaping the massive shadow of Christopher Reeve's iconic turn as Clark Kent, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" star Henry Cavill says he deals with it by approaching the character from a different angle.
Explaining that while both Clarks have the same main goal -- to maintain their secret identities -- they achieve their objectives in unique ways."
"Comparisons with Christopher Reeve's clumsy Clark Kent are inevitable," Cavill told "Studio Cine Live" (translated by Batman News). "My Clark Kent is trying to be as small and invisible as possible. If you're awkward and spilling things constantly, people are going to notice you, and that's not the best way to go unseen. You have to admit, it's not a remarkable disguise, just a pair of glasses. He'd like to think that no one will believe he could be Superman. How could such a delicate flower be a living god? Preposterous."
Directed by Zack Snyder and starring Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg and Amy Adams, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" opens March 25, 2016.
