Kevin Costner, star of such films as 'Dances With Wolves' and 'The Company Men' has been confirmed to play the adoptive father of Clark Kent (Superman) in the new movie set to be released in 2012. The film also features relative new kid on the block Henry Cavill as the main man and is rumored to contain Viggo Mortensen although this has not yet been confirmed.
How about the inclusion of Costner huh? He is an absolutely perfect pick for a superhero film in a father role. It is actually surprising he hasn't been thought of for a role such as this before. I am certain he will have success with this movie. The movie itself sounds as if it will be a fresh addition to the franchise, apparently having little to do with the previous films. I think this will be one of the reasons that this film does well upon its release. Without a well known front man the film has caught a big break with Kevin Costner and will without doubt benefit from his inclusion.
