Kevin Costner to Play Superman's Father Jonathan Kent in Zach Snyder's Superman Reboot 2011-03-18 10:07:37

Kevin Costner Will Get Fatherly in Superman

The Superman cast continues to come together. After hot Brit import Henry Cavill snagged the role of the caped superhero, Diane Lane was cast as his mother figure, Martha Kent. Now he has his father: Kevin Costner has been cast as Jonathan Kent, Martha's husband and the man who discovers infant Kal-El and raises him as his own.

Costner had been rumored to be attached, but today Warner Bros. and Snyder confirmed the deal, with Snyder saying that "Kevin will be able to communicate the quiet strength of this rural American man who raised the greatest superhero of all time." I'm happy about Costner's involvement, but I'm still champing at the bit for one bit of casting news. Who will play Lois Lane?
