Actor Kevin Costner has been signed for the father role to Clark Kent in the new Superman movie. The Academy Award winner will play Jonathan Kent, who raises Kent as his own son and helps him understand what he is meant to do in the world as Superman.
"Kevin will be able to
communicate the quiet strength of this rural American man who raised the greatest super hero of all time," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted director Zack Snyder as saying in a statement.
Costner will act alongside Diane Lane, who will play his wife, Martha, and the film's star, Henry Cavill, who will play the new Clark Kent in Superman: Man of Steel.
