Zack Snyder’s Superman re-boot The Man of Steel, is putting together quite a cast. The film already has Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Zod, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Coster as Jonathan Kent, and The Tudors’ Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent. Now Laurence Fishburne has joined the cast as Daily Planet Editor-in-Chief Perry White. Morpheus is an interesting choice for role, considering it’s always been played by a crochety old white guy yelling at a kid photographer all day long.  For some reason it’s hard for me to imagine Cowboy Curtis saying, “Great Cesar’s Ghost!” Superman: The Man of Steel was set to debut in December of 2012, but has since been pushed back to June, 2013.

What do you think of the casting? Discuss in the comments below!


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
