We have some more casting news when it comes to the upcoming Superman film “Man of Steel,” and this time the editor-in-chief of “The Daily Planet” (in Perry White) is front and center.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Laurence Fishburne has secured the role of the aforementioned character, who will oversee both Clark Kent and Lois Lane during the Zack Snyder film. The role was previously occupied by Frank Langella for Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns” back in 2006.
Fishburne comes on board the project after the news broke earlier this summer that he would not be returning to “CSI” for a third season. He was replaced there by Ted Danson, who will now be the new lead investigator.
“Man of Steel” (which is executive-produced by Christopher Nolan) was recently delayed, and will now hit theaters on June 14, 2013. Suffice it to say, expectations are high.
