Default The Official Kevin Costner IS Pa Kent Thread

www.superherohype.com

Anyway my first thought was Pa Kent, though I think he'd be a damn good Perry White

Jor-El maybe, as some commented. Seems like another one of those big coup moments for the film, if they can land him, like getting Robert Downey Jnr for Iron Man. Could be interesting to see him dominate the role of Jor-El for a short, but significant, time ala Marlon Brando.

Jonathan Kent makes the most sense.

This thread may as well be titled "Kevin Costner Is Jonathan Kent". Lol.

Hmmm. This lines up with how Snyder said he cast Watchmen. He wanted relatively younger actors for traditionally older roles, so they could play themselves in flashbacks but then be aged to look older in the present.

I suppose they could do this with Costner as Pa Kent.

Could work.

There's no need. Kevin's getting up there in age, though not nearly as old as Glenn Ford was when he played it (7 year difference). This is semi-recent pic of Kevin:



That's old enough.

They could grey him up much more. Snyder did that with all the Minutemen survivors in the present of Watchmen.

Pa Kent is generally grandfather age around the time Superman begins.

It's been that way in all the comics (except Birthright due to the Smallville TV series tie-in) and even in The Animated Series and all the Animated movies.... and the serials, and the Reeves series.

I don't see what relevance a few years has. Ignoring that this is a reboot so it's not particularly obliged to strictly follow previous iterations, what advantage is it to age an already elder actor?

I wouldn't consider him elderly. The Kents are senior citizens essentially, especially during the time Superman begins.

Costner isn't there yet.

I'll tell ya....Costner has made some great films......Silverado, The Big Chill, The Untouchables, Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, Dances With Wolves, Revenge, A Perfect World, Tin Cup, Open Range, Thirteen Days, JFK.

Also some duds, The Postman, Waterworld, Wyatt Earp (even though he wasn't bad as Wyatt though) 3000 Miles to Graceland.....

The man is only 56 years old also and it seems like he has been around forever.

Solid casting though if he winds up being Jonathan "Pa" Kent though.

Looks like I can forget about Betty White playing Ma Kent.

3000 Miles to Graceland is a guilty pleasure of mine.

Guys dressed like Elvis blowing people away in over the top fashion in a casino? Courtney Cox bound and gagged in a trunk? Christian Slater?

Instant classic.

Or better yet, Pa Kent can die before he needs aged much.

Pretty good choice I would say.

I doubt Pa Kent will die in this one, otherwise they wouldn't have cast a younger vigorous actor.

Continued failure if they go with a Superman who runs home to mommy and daddy for pie and advice.

Of course this is just being made to keep the rights from Siegel's daughter (his wife passed away just recently), so it's not like they give a crap about getting Superman right I guess.
