Furious Styles To Make A Difference As Editor Of Daily Planet In THE MAN OF STEEL

Lawrence Fishburne joins the Superman reboot.

Yes, Laurence Fishburne is playing Perry White in The Man of Steel, Zack Snyder’s reboot of the Superman franchise. A black guy! Playing a white guy named White! The folks who got upset about Idris Elba as a Norse god are probably shitting blood over this casting right now.

I love it. Larry has a wonderful warm authority, a real fatherly quality*. I hope he has a part to play, and not just a couple of scenes in which to appear while hassling Clark Kent for copy.

* In movies. Since his daughter has become a porn star it’s unclear what his IRL fatherly qualities are like.
