Zack Snyder Reportedly Considering Kevin Costner for a Role in Superman Reboot
Posted 02.22.11 by reelz
Heading the news in the Nobody-Saw-This-Coming Category, comes reports that director Zack Snyder is considering an unspecified role for Kevin Costner in the upcoming Superman reboot.
While we don't know what role Costner could play in the reboot, it's not likely he would be filling the shoes of Gene Hackman and be playing Lex Luthor since we already known that the baddie in the movie will likely be Kryptonian superwoman Ursa. But aside from some minor speculation that Costner could be cast as Clark Kent's father (either Earth or Kryptonian), there isn't much in the rumor mills of what role Costner will fill in the movie.
Production on the movie is set to begin in a few months with a release date of December 2012. Guess we have some time to guess who Costner will be if he ends up in the movie.
UPDATE: LatinoReview is reporting that Costner is being eyed to play Superman's earthly dad Johnathan Kent. Guess that means no tights for Costner.
