Why is Superman unrecognizable as Clark Kent when he only wears a glasses for disguise?

At least Spiderman wears a hood that covers his face. It is an insult to the movie viewers, especially when Clark Kent is working with media people who are supposed to be nosy, but who can't distinguish him as Superman.

    It is a whole change in character... not just the glasses.

    In the movies it is hard to show that posture and the way you carry yourself dramatically change how people percieve you....

    In the comics John Byrne did emphisize that Superman stands very tall and wears a form fitting costume where as Clark Kent slumps slightly and wears clothes slightly larger then he needs.

    This is espesally obvious in All Star Superman! Clark And Supes don't even look that similar since Clark, though tall, appears heavy necked and bumbling.

    Lol, well, there was one episode in an old Superman series (Teri Hatcher's time) when a villain told her that she's the most stupid person in the world for not recognizing Clark as Superman. Lol. The scene was sad for Louis but it was really funny. So I guess my answer why people doesn't recognize Superman as Clark because they are all stupid? Lol! That's a harsh answer...

  • Because when Clark was a kid, he got his own Fairly Odd Parents and made a wish when he was adult nobody could recognize his alter ego from his superhuman identity.

    If you dont read the comics or the books he changes his posture to make himself appear several inches shorter. he changes his voice, he acts like a p*ssy, changes his hair wears loose closes to make him look like a wuse.

    He puts on glasses....changes his hairstyle(clark's hair is slicked back...superman's is not) and stoops over to a different posture. He also wears very loose fitting clothes to hide his muscles.

    Because he wears glasses! Superman doesn't wear glasses. He wouldn't be able to see when he takes them off.
