Ehhhh, I don't really have an opinion on this one. I don't think he will blow me away with how much greatness he brought to the role. I feel like he will just be in there, nothing memorable. who knows.

ps.
General Vulcan, you should probably change your sig. Man of Steel isn't a 2012 movie

Maybe Fishburne will be Bizarro Langella. Doesn't immediately feel like a fit, but he gives a great performance.

I find it really weird to cast L. Fishburne as Perry White. Clearly not the choice I would have made. It does not go with the picture I have of an excited Perry white, but well, maybe he will do good in the movie.

I love the casting, like I said before there was so many good choices for Perry, and Fishburne has a wonderful voice I could easily see him filling the role. Man the casting has been great in this film. I think we are going to get something special. Can't wait for full on filming!

I'm gonna have to fight you on that one:

Not including the amazing actors like Tom Hardy or the underappreciated Gary Oldman, The Dark Knight Rises has put together far and away the most impressive ensemble cast---only rivaled in a superhero film by its predecessor.


1.)
The Dark Knight Rises:
Oscar Winner, Christian Bale
Oscar Winner, Marion Cotillard
Oscar Winner, Morgan Freeman
Two time Oscar Winner, Michael Caine
Oscar Nominee, Liam Neeson
Oscar Nominee, Anne Hathaway
Golden Globe Nominee, Joseph Gordon-Levitt

2.)
Man of Steel:
Oscar Winner, Russell Crowe
Oscar Nominee, Amy Adams
Oscar Nominee, Diane Lane
Oscar Nominee, Michael Shannon
Oscar Nominee, Kevin Costner (acting, he won as Producer and Director)
Oscar Nominee, Laurence Fishburne

3.)
The Avengers:
Golden Globe Nominee, Scarlett Johanson
Oscar Nominee, Mark Ruffalo
Oscar Nominee, Jeremy Renner
Oscar Nominee, Robert Downey Jr.
Oscar Nominee, Samuel L. Jackson
Oscar Winner, Gwyneth Paltrow

4.)
The Amazing Spider-man:
Golden Globe Nominee, Andrew Garfield
Golden Globe Nominee, Denis Leary
Golden Globe Nominee, Emma Stone
Golden Globe Winner, Martin Sheen
Two time Oscar Winner, Sally Field


Man of Steel still has an amazing cast, which I feel is only going to get stronger with the addition of the actor playing Lex Luthor (and I don't think they'll skimp out there...) It's great to see SO much talent going towards these properties and that they have come this far in respectability. Also, in terms of this film....having Nolan as producer I'm sure is a draw for many of the "actor's actors" who wouldn't normally do a superhero film. If I recall, about 10 years ago Russell Crowe was rumored to have turned down the possibility to play Jim Gordon in a Nolan Batman film...Two Nolan Batfilms later and Crowe agrees to sign on for a supporting role in a Nolan produced Superman film... Kinda ironic.

Excited to see how the rest of the cast shakes up and some publicity stills.

I like the casting. He wasn't my first choice but I think he'd be good. I could certainly see him as a wise mentor to the pup reporters though seeing him as the gruff go- getter is a bit harder to imagine. However,I did see him portray Justice Marhall in that play recently , and if he plays Perry like that , I could see it . I'd recommend everyone look at it , if they get a chance.

I guess in the reboot... Perry's middle name is "Ain't".
I love Lawrence as an actor in everything he does...
I just don't care about the racially motivated revisionist history with iconic characters.
Will Smith NEVER should have been Jim West...
Mc G himself told me he wanted Smith as Supes as his first choice.
That kind of stuff infuriates me as a black man.
JUST CREATE A NEW CHARACTER!!!

Thowing black folks a bone like this doesn't make us happy
and think things are on the level in HELLywood.

Anyway...regardless of all that... I still hope they can tell a good story
and pull Supes from the brink.
He needs and desevers better than what we have been getting.

A great moment on Lois and Clark show is when the guest star James Earl Jones appeared for the season 1 rebuilding of the DP episode. His character had a vibe similar to what I imagined a modern Perry to be like, and he happened to be black. If there is a role that I can see it working in changing the race, or not affecting the character badly it is this one.

Did I miss any posts where people thought he would be better for Lex? I used to read it online all the time, back when Matrix was going on people thought he had a good look for Lex.

Great casting. This is the best cast in a superhero movie yet, imo.

Don't mind it, and I enjoy seeing Fishburne on screen, but if they had to get a black guy, I would have loved to see Denzel Washington as White; he seems able to closer play the character I see White having.

I do prefer comic accurate, but this should be fun.

Not blown away by this casting. I just havnt been impressed by Fishburne for a long time.
But glad to see they're spicing up the role. I hope he wont be a "calm" editor, because Fishburne is best at being loud-mouthed and commanding.
I wonder if he'll be facing off Lennix again.

Well this was quite surprising to find out, I'm looking forward to seeing how Perry will be portrayed in this movie and to be honest that wasn't something that I cared about before.

Quite happy with this news
