Laurence Fishburne will boss around Clark Kent and Lois Lane in Man of Steel
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
As you saw earlier this week, pre-production is underway on Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot entitled MAN OF STEEL. It appears that all the casting had not been announced yet so I’m pleased to say that Laurence Fishburne will be joining the cast as Perry White. White is the editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet and he is in charge of his star reporters Lois Lane (Amy Adams) and Clark Kent/Superman (Henry Cavill). Fishburne will join a cast that also includes: Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Russell Crow, Julia Ormond and Christopher Meloni. MAN OF STEEL is set to hit theaters on June 14, 2013.
I’m really excited to see Laurence Fishburne play Perry White. I think his demeanor is great for this part, he’s stoic, tough and doesn’t take any poo just like any good editor. I just hope they don’t make his part too cheesy like some of the renderings of Perry White have been in the past.
