Just recently we found out that the unexpected choice to play Superman’s mother/caretaker, Martha Kent, in director Zack Snyder‘s upcoming new take on the superhero would be the cougar-hot Diane Lane…but who would play his father, Jonathan Kent?

It’s being reported, after many whispers and rumors, that Dances With Wolves and Waterworld star Kevin Costner will be playing Mr. Kent in the movie, currently titled The Man of Steel.

Snyder explained that Costner epitomizes “Heartland America” and that “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.”

Snyder also touched on his approach to making this brightest of spotlight projects, which should make fanboys a little more comfortable with the movie. “We’re making a movie that finally goes with the approach that there’s been no other Superman movies,” he explained. “If you look at Batman Begins, there’s that structure: there’s the canon that we know about and respect, but on other hand there’s this approach that pre-supposes that there haven’t been any other movies. In every aspect of design and of story, the whole thing is very much from that perspective of ‘Respect the canon but don’t be a slave to the movies.’”

Clark Kent/Superman will be played by The Tudors and Immortals star Henry Cavill, and The Man of Steel is currently slated for release at some point in 2012.
