Kevin Costner Confirmed For “Superman”

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures finally confirmed today in a press release that Kevin Costner will play Jonathan Kent, the father who raised Clark Kent as his own son, in the new “Superman” movie to be directed by Zack Snyder.

Snyder states “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.”

Costner will star alongside Diane Lane as his wife, Martha, and Henry Cavill as Clark.
