Laurence Fishburne to play Perry White in MAN OF STEEL
Another A-lister has joined the ranks of SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL. Morpheus himself, Laurence Fishburne will play the boss of bumbling Clark Kent and the object of his affection, Lois Lane. Perry White, who was formerly played by Jackie Cooper and Frank Langella in the very first SUPERMAN and SUPERMAN RETURNS, is now going to be brought to the screen by THE MATRIX star.
MAN OF STEEL is being produced by Christopher Nolan. It stars Henry Cavill as Clark (a.k.a. Superman), Amy Adams as Lois, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, and Diane Lane as Martha Kent. Filming begins this fall, and it’s slated for release on June 14, 2013.
