We have been covering Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel from the beginning and we now have yet another casting announcement to bring you. Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) will play Clark Kent’s boss, Perry White, the editor-in-chief of The Daily Planet. Fishburne joins an impressive cast that includes Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Russell Crowe. Hero Complex first broke the news that Fishburn would be taking on the character that first appeared in comics in 1940 (Superman #7)
This will be the first time an African-American has played the role of Perry White, in both film, comics, and television. Fishburne is an outstanding actor and his addition to this cast is just one more reason this project is gearing up to be awesome. We recently reported that Snyder’s Man of Steel had been pushed back from December 2012 to summer 2013 – so we will have to wait a little longer to see this outstanding cast in action.
