According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kevin Costner has officially signed on to star as Superman’s adoptive father in Zack Snyder’s SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL!
Warner Brothers confirmed in a statement,
“Jonathan Kent is the only father figure Clark has ever had, the man who was there to help Clark understand what he was meant to do in the world as Superman. Kevin will be able to communicate the quiet strength of this rural American man who raised the greatest superhero of all time.”
Costner will join Diane Lane as Martha Kent and British actor Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel himself (the first time a non-American has taken on the role).
And if you need just another reason to think this movie is going to be awesome, the Zack Snyder epic is being co-produced by THE DARK KNIGHT and MEMENTO director Christopher Nolan.
Bring it on!
