Laurence Fishburne Joins MAN OF STEEL

Zack Snyder's roster of actors for the 2013 reboot of the Superman franchise, "Man of Steel", adds one more. Today it was announced that Laurence Fishburne, who you probably know and love as Morpheus from "The Matrix", has signed on to play Perry White, editor-in-chief for the Daily Planet and Clark Kent's boss. There's a bit of a controversy going on as we speak regarding the fact that the character Perry White from the comics was white, which means Snyder will probably come under fire from die-hard Superman fan s with this casting decision. I personally love the fact that Fishburne is returning to the mainstream and I'm certain he can bring the proper kind of on-screen gravitas to his scenes.

Among previous actors who have embodied Perry White are Jackie Cooper in Richard Donner's "Superman" and Frank Langella in Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns". Zack Snyder's version, scheduled for release on June 14, 2013, already has an all-star cast which includes Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Clark's adoptive parents, Michael Shannon as General Zod and Russel Crowe as Superman's father. The script is penned by David S. Goyer, based on a story by Christopher Nolan, who will also produce the movie.
