Laurence Fishburne Set To Play Superman’s Boss In Zack Snyder’s ‘Man Of Steel’
  |  @   |  

The cast of Zack Snyder‘s Superman reboot, Man of Steel, is coming together nicely, and now an actor has been chosen to play the big boss man to Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Lois Lane (Amy Adams) at The Daily Planet, Perry White.

Entertainment Weekly has learned exclusively that Laurence Fishburne has been cast to play White, who’s typically known as a tough–but–fair editor–in–chief of the newspaper. Fishburne just recently had a two–season run on the hit CBS show, CSI, which he departed from in May.

The actor joins a cast that includes Cavill, Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Russell Crowe.

Man of Steel will be released on June 14, 2013.

  2. This movie just seems like a bad idea all the way around.

  3. Well they had to have at least one token black in the movie. Why not make it ironic at the same time?

    They did this with dare devil, and we all know how well that movie did.

  4. Bring on the CGI marathon with slo-mo shot after slo-mo shot to drive the mind-numbingly tedious action scenes home for the same crowd who paid to see Transformers 3 in droves.   Oh Warner Brothes, when will you just hand over story and plotting over to Bruce Timm & co.

  6. But…he’s…black.  I’m tired of Hollywood’s race-changes for the sake of throwing in minority actors.  Give them a giant, new role, I don’t care.  Just stop taking the established roles and changing them.  As much as I admire Laurence Fishburn, I think this is a bad idea.  I also like Sam Jackson, but I don’t like him as Nick Fury.

    I’m just shocked that they didn’t pick Will Smith for Perry White.  Jeez.
