Does the new Superman look like Robert Pattinson?
The New York Post is saying that the new Superman (from DC Comics Superman: Earth One) looks more like Robert Pattinson that Christopher Reeve. What do you guys think?
In “Superman: Earth One,” the Man of Steel is a conflicted 20-year-old who’s trying to find his way in the world, bearing more of a resemblance to Robert Pattinson from the “Twilight” movies than Christopher Reeve from the Superman films.
He wears hoodies, has smoldering eyes and, as a lanky Clark Kent, wears low-cut pants and hipster skinny ties. Artist Shane Davis also made him less physically imposing — shorter and less beefy — than he has traditionally been depicted.
“We wanted to tell a story that’s hip, sexy and moody,” said DC Comics’ co-publisher Dan DiDio.
“We wanted to show a younger Superman at the early stages of his career, struggling with his identity and his place. He realizes he doesn’t belong anywhere and doesn’t fit in.”
Sounds pretty hot to me! I guess Clark Kent will be more geek chic than he used to be.
