It seems as if Spider-Man isn’t the only comic book character getting a little change of color. Den of Geek reported earlier today that Laurence Fishburne (‘The Matrix’), has been cast in the role of Perry White in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman movie ‘Man of Steel’.
Perry White, is the boisterous editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet and boss of Clark Kent and Lois Lane. The character of Perry White has been played on the big screen by Jackie Cooper in Richard Donner’s ‘Superman’ films in the 1980s and most recently in ‘Superman Returns’ by Frank Langella.
With this announcement, Perry White will join his Daily Planet co-workers Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) and Lois Lane (Amy Adams). So my next fanboy question is… who will play the role of Planet photographer and Superman’s pal Jimmy Olsen?
‘Man of Steel’, directed by Zack Snyder is set to release on June 14, 2013 and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, and Michael Shannon.
