First Look at ‘Batman v Superman’ Star Henry Cavill On Set as Clark Kent

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Henry Cavill in costume as Clark Kent on the set of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” While Superman’s alter-ego is seen without his iconic glasses in the behind-the-scenes shot, Cavill is unmistakably inhabiting Superman’s secret identity as Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent — for further proof, check out the name on his director’s chair.

Proving that he’s equally heroic off-screen, Cavill was photographed showing his support for the U.K.’s Royal Marine 1664 Challenge, displaying a shirt for the event, which is a fundraiser to help wounded and severely injured Royal Marines transition back into civilian life.

Cavill is an ambassador for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, which tweeted the photo.

The newest installment in the superhero franchise stars Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent opposite Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman.  Amy Adams is set to reprise her “Man of Steel” role of Lois Lane, while “Game of Thrones” actor Jason Momoa will appear as Aquaman/Arthur Curry, and Gal Gadot (“Fast and Furious 6”) will make her debut as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is currently slated for a May 2016 release.
