Laurence Fishburne has been confirmed to play as Perry White in the upcoming reboot ‘Superman: Man of Steel’ directed by Zack Snyder.

’The Matrix’ star, Laurence Fishburne, 50 has been reportedly signed to join the cast of the upcoming Superman reboot ‘Man of Steel’. He would play the role of Perry White, Editor in chief of Daily Planet.

The ‘Armoured’ star is the first black actor to play the character of Perry White in any of the moves, cartoon or television versions, based on the adventures of Superman. Initially, it was criticized on casting a British actor, Henry Cavill to star as Superman. But it was cooled, after casting Amy Adams, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane.

Amy Adams will play as Lois Lane, Costner as Pa Kent and Diane as Martha Kent in the movie. The character of Perry White was always believed to be known as a tough, irascible and far minded newsman.

Earlier, the role of White was played by Jackie Cooper in Superman movies with Christopher Reeve in the lead role, while Frank Langella donned the role in ‘Superman Returns’ in the year 2006 directed by Bryan Singer.

The role would be the first for Fishburne, since he has announced his departure from ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’, after he appeared for two seasons. He will also appear in his upcoming movie ‘Contagion’ directed by Steven Soderbergh, which is set for release in theaters on September 9, 2011 in United States.

The upcoming movie ‘Superman: Man of Steel’ is scheduled for release on June 14, 2013.
