Superman Movie News: Laurence Fishburne cast as Perry White in 'Man of Steel' film

Great Ceasar's Ghost! EW reports that Laurence Fishburne is cast as Perry White, the Daily Planet's editor-in-chief in the new Superman, Man of Steel film starring  as Clark Kent/Superman as Lois Lane as Martha Kent as Jonathan Kent, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Julia Ormond as Lara,  Russell Crowe as Jor-El. Antje Traue, Harry Lennix and Christopher Meloni also star.      

I must say great casting all-around! Can't wait to find out who they will cast as Jimmy Olsen! Also, this is unexpected, but rather great casting choice! Laurence Fishburne is a great actor and another Oscar Nominee. I'm sure he'll be great as Perry White.

Here's part of the article via EW:
Laurence Fishburne cast as Perry White in 'Man of Steel' -- EXCLUSIVE

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. Jackie Cooper played White in the Christopher Reeve-era Superman films, and Frank Langella took on the role in director Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns in 2006. Man of Steel is due to begin filming this fall, and is slated for release on June 14, 2013. read full article here!
