With news coming previously that Diana Lane would take on the role of Superman’s adoptive mom, Martha Kent, in Zack Snyder’s upcoming reboot of the franchise, a lingering question of who would be his father remained. Of course, there’s been speculation and rumors that Kevin Costner was in negotiations for the role, but those were just rumors.
That is, until now. According to reports, Costner is definitely being cast in the part of Superman’s adoptive father Jonathan Kent. The actor will join Henry Cavill, who is playing the title role.
The casting of Costner is quite a big deal as Snyder has seemingly gone for lesser-known actors for most of his films. However, the cast of this one seems to be featuring quite a few names, at least so far. Granted, Henry Cavill isn’t exactly a household name, but obviously Costner and Lane are.
With these roles done we can now turn to speculation on who will play other characters in the film including Lex Luthor, General Zod and Lois Lane. Although, as we don’t know the exact story of the film yet, it may be premature to even speculate on those roles because they may not be in the film at all. Still, it is kinda fun.
Let the speculation continue!
