Kevin Costner Confirmed as Pa Kent in Zack Snyder's New Superman
Briefly: An exciting casting confirmation for Superman fans. Deadline has confirmed that Kevin Costner is now officially set to play Jonathan "Pa" Kent in Zack Snyder's Superman: Man of Steel, currently in pre-production headed for release in late 2012. He'll star opposite Henry Cavill as Superman aka Clark Kent, his adopted son, and Diane Lane as his wife Martha Kent. We still don't know much about the plot or who the main villain is, though there's been plenty of rumors, but after Snyder's other movie Sucker Punch lands in theaters in a few weeks, he'll be able to move at full steam and finalize casting. Excited about Costner?
