Update 8:13pm: This is confirmed by Latino Review - Kevin Costner will be Jonathan "Pa" Kent.
Deadline reports that Kevin Costner might be up for a role in the new Zack Snyder directed Superman.
The exact role is not known, but Deadline does state it to be a "key role." They also surmise it could be as a "good guy" - because a of Costner's recent role in The Company Men and his work with the BP oil disaster.
I'm thinking - Pa Kent.
The new Superman is due out December 2012 and is being directed by Zack Snyder, produced by Christopher Nolan and stars Henry Cavill as Superman.
