Kevin Costner Confirmed For Superman Movie

But not as Jor-El. He’ll be playing Clark’s Earth daddy instead, Jonathan Kent

Snyder says, “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 super hero of all time.”

Costner will star alongside Henry Cavill, who will play the new Clark Kent/Superman, and Diane Lane, who plays his wife, Martha. He previous SF and fantasy credits include Field Of Dreams , Waterworld and The Postman .
