- MORPHEUS IS A MAN OF STEEL
Laurence Fishburne has been cast as Perry White in Zack Snyder’s Superman pic Man of Steel. This is truly a surprise!!
The rumour mill has been working overtime with people trying to figure out who would be playing the grouchy editor that will take on Lois and Clark in the new Man of Steel film. Now we know it will be Morpheus!
Now there is a chance that this could spike some outrageous from the less open-minded comic book fans, who don’t really agree with this colour-blind casting approach that we have seen taking place in comic book films recently. Examples of this would be, Michael Clarke Duncan playing The Kingpin in Daredevil, or even the more recent nonsense complaints about Idris Elba in Thor
Regardless of this we sure that Fishburne will be wonderful at being the no nonsense editor, Perry White.
Fishburne, who just left the job of leading the CSI crime team on US TV, joins a cast that already includes Cavill, Adams, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Julia Ormond, Harry Lennix and Antje Traue.
And we do know that the film is getting ready to start shooting in September/October for a June 2013 release.
