Yesterday the news broke that Laurence Fishburne has been cast as Daily Planet Editor Perry White in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman film, “Man of Steel: Please Make Me Forget ‘Superman Returns’ “.
Ok, Ok, it’s tentatively called “Man of Steel” right now… but that’s what we’re all thinking.
Fishburne fills out what is becoming an absolutely loaded cast. Henry Cavill (The Tudors) will play Superman, and he’s probably the biggest unknown. Amy Adams will play Lois Lane and Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, The Runaways) will be General Zod. Providing the family wisdom from Smallville will be Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Ma and Pa Kent.
Oh. And the movie is being produced by Christopher Nolan. Yep.
