Russell Crowe to play Superman's father in "Man of Steel"

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Russell Crowe is set to play the role of Superman's biological father Jor-El in the upcoming "Man of Steel" reboot movie, according to media reports Thursday.

The mercurial Aussie is in negotiations to take the role in "Man of Steel," which Zack Snyder is on board to direct with Brit thesp Henry Cavill set to play Superman.

In the classic 1978 movie, starring Christopher Reeve, the role was played by Marlon Brando.

While the studio has yet to confirm the casting, the report indicates that an A-list actress is also being sought to play Lara, Superman's biological mother.

But if the early reports are correct, Crowe will join previously announced cast members Henry Cavill (Superman) and Amy Adams (Lois Lane).

Kevin Costner and Diane Lane will play Superman's adoptive parents.

"Man Of Steel" is scheduled to hit theaters in 2012.
