First off has someone already mentioned they would have seen him more as Lex?

Secondly does this mean we are more likely to see reporter Clark?

Thirdly, not the role I would have pictured him in but what a cast!

They seem to be thinking outside the box with their casting choices. It's great!

So does this mean we could get Donald Glover as Jimmy Olsen?

Lol so many people saw him for a villain role at some point. Anyone of decent status and ability in the right age range would work for Perry so not worried.

I love this one here. Good job, Snyder.

Maybe when Clark applies for a job at the Daily Planet, Perry will offer him a choice between the red pill and the blue pill.

Yeah that's where I got the idea from. I never thought of him as Jimmy until you mentioned it, but I could see it.

This could work. I can dig Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, No matter what the race. He's a great actor and has the commanding presence yet a heart in his performances. Another great actor added to the list of this film.

I don't care what anybody says. Talent and name wise. Out of all the big four CBM coming out, this has the best cast and is only going to get better.
