Laurence Fishburne IS Perry White in ‘Man of Steel’

Fishburne goes from The Matrix to Metropolis in his first post-C.S.I. role.

In the umpteenth piece of Man of Steel casting news that doesn't involve Lex Luthor, Entertainment Weekly now reports that Laurence Fishburne has been cast as Perry White, The Daily Planet's Editor-in-Chief (but seriously, don't call him "Chief"). The former Silver Surfer now joins such actors as the late Jackie Cooper, George Dzundza, Ray Wise, Ed Asner, Lane Smith, Frank Langella, John Hamilton and Michael McKean, all of whom played Superman's boss at one time or another.

Seriously though, this is getting ridiculous. Where the hell is Lex Luthor? Are they going the Batman Begins route, and leaving the protagonist's greatest enemy for the sequel? Or is something trickier going on here… After alll, Laurence Fishburne would make an excellent Lex Luthor.

Twist.
