I’ve been busy the last few days so I’m just getting around to the story of Laurence Fishburne being cast as “Perry White” in the upcoming “Man of Steel” the proposed darker and edgier take on the Superman movies. Perry as comic readers may know is..well…white…..expect Black Heimdall and black Kingpin backlash across cyberspace especially in light of the Black Spider-man internet explosion.
And this just in a new shot of actor Henry Cavill as Superman!
The film will be directed by Zack Snyder of “Sucker Punch” and “Watchmen” fame. The full cast includes: Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Julia Ormond as Lara Lor-Van, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent. Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder are the producers of the film. It will be written by David S. Goyer based on a story by Goyer and Nolan. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are serving as executive producers.
More as it hits!
