And there you have it, folks! Deadline.com brought up the likelihood of Kevin Costner portraying Pa Kent in Zack Snyder’s Superman film about a month ago. Now, it has been made official. This news fills out the casting of the Kent family with Diane Lane as Martha and Henry Cavill as Clark.
“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.”
