Laurence Fishburne Signing On For 'Perry White' In Zack Snyder's <i>Man Of Steel</i>!

Recent reports suggest that The Matrix Oscar-nominated actor Laurence Fishburne is the latest to join Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, Man Of Steel as Perry White. Check it!



The folks from Entertainment Weekly, as well other reliable sources, are reporting that Oscar-nominated actor Laurence Fishburne is rounding out the star-studded cast of Zack Snyder's 'Superman' reboot, Man Of Steel. Filling in the shoes of Daily Planet editor-in-chief, Perry White, the site states verbatim:

Lois Lane and Clark Kent just got their boss: Laurence Fishburne will play Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White in Man of Steel, EW has learned exclusively. White has traditionally been a hard-charging, old fashioned newspaperman, who relies on his ace reporters, Clark and Lois, to get the big scoop.


Laurence Fishburne, 50, gave an Oscar-nominated performance as 'Ike Turner' in What's Love Got to Do With It, alongside leading actress Angela Bassett. And hes also appeared in The Matrix, Mystic River and Apocalypse Now.

Like EW suggests, Perry White is the abrasive, old-school newsman who lords over the the Daily Planet. However, while Fishburne is evidently African-American, in the comics, the character is portrayed as a Caucasian. What do you think?


Man Of Steel, under Zack Snyder's direction, stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Julia Ormond, Russell Crowe with Christopher Meloni & Harry Lennix. And the reboot is slated for theaters June 14, 2013!
