Kevin Costner is Officially Superman’s Earth Dad

I’ll make this short and simple: Kevin Costner has officially been cast as Superman’s adopted Earth father, Jonathan Kent. He joins Diane Lane as Supes’ mum, pretty much making Superman’s mom and pop the prettiest Earth couple since, well, possibly ever in the history of cinema.

Zack Snyder is directing the “Superman” reboot, which will star Henry Cavill as the Big Boy Scout. Villains, on the other hand, are still up in the air. Most people believe the film’s title will officially be “Superman: Man of Steel”, but there’s no confirmation on that one yet.

You can read Snyder’s thoughts on his approach to the reboot here. Christopher Nolan is producing.

The man of steel flies again in 2012.
