He isn't my first choice, and not the best choice but this movie is already starting off very badly with the news that the script sucks, and with the import Henry Cavill landing the role.
With Costner now of Waterworld fame this movie can officially be called! Snyderman: Shrimp of Steel!
Hollywood actor Kevin Costner is reportedly set for a role in the new Superman movie.
Deadline claims the actor is in the running for a role in the new rebooted movie, which is being directed by Zack Snyder for Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures.
The film will see British actor Henry Cavill in the lead role but it is not yet known what part Costner will be taking on.
It is set for release in December 2012 and it is being produced by Chris Nolan, Charles Roven, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder with the screenplay being written by David S. Goyer.
