It has just been confirmed that Kevin Costner will be playing the role of Superman’s biggest influence, Pa Kent. Its been rumored for a few weeks but I must admit, I believed it too good to be true but I suppose “if you believe it, he will come.” Zack Snyder had the following to say:
“Jonathan Kent is the only father figure Clark has ever had, the man who was there to help Clark understand what he was 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.”
Kevin Costner joins Henry Cavill and Diane Lane in the cast of the Superman Reboot so far. We can now move on to the more burning question of what Villain will we be seeing the caped boy scout battle. Costner was quoted saying “Dry land is not just our destination, it is our destiny!” Does it matter that we pulled that quote from Waterworld? No, the point is the same.
