Kevin Costner May Join Superman


What's the best way to lend some recognizable gravitas to your superhero movie when it stars a young hunk whom audiences may not have heard of? Hire a co-star who won an Oscar in the nineties! Thor's got Anthony Hopkins, Captain America has Tommy Lee Jones, and now Zack Snyder's Superman reboot may be adding Kevin Costner as backup for man of steel Henry Cavill. Deadline broke the news, though the site hasn't heard which character he might play. Since Lois Lane is off the table, how about Daily Planet editor Perry White? (Or maybe Costner could appear as himself, if Superman is battling Stephen Baldwin?) [Deadline]
