You gotta kind of be feeling for Zack Snyder right about now. His brainchild, fantasy action pic "Sucker Punch" is just over a week away from hitting theaters and the advance buzz is muted at best and of course, he's got the huge responsibility and weight of fanboy expectation on his back for the upcoming "Superman" relaunch. There's a lot of pressure on the helmer, but he's bravely pushing forward and he's gonna do it his way whether anyone likes it or not.

Kevin Costner Confirmed To Be Up For Jonathan KentIt's not so long since we speculated on the choice of villain in the upcoming Zack Snyder-helmed, Christopher Nolan-produced reboot of "Superman"; with Henry Cavill being picked to play the man of steel, it seemed like the next logical step for his adversary to appear, but, despite a number of names cropping up in rumors, it was never entirely clear which villain from the character's 80-year history would be facing off against Clark Kent's alter ego. But, breaking last thing on Friday night, we seem to have an idea of not only who the antagonist will be, but also the actor that seems to be leading the pack to play him.

Alright, Zack Snyder, you're throwing us for a goddamn loop with this one. Updated: Latino Review says if Costner gets this role, and it sounds like he might, that he'll play Pa Kent, Superman's earth-dad, Jonathan "Pa" Kent.

Like any casting run-up for any comic/franchise/tentpole film, a number of actors were rumored and wishlisted, but the names that were in the final running for Zack Snyder's "Superman" included Matthew Goode, Matthew Bomer, Armie Hammer, Joe Manganiello and Colin O’Donaghue. However, what eventually landed Henry Cavill the gig was something as simple as those in the audition room not giggling when he came out dressed in the iconic suit.

We expect some form of denial on this one to come along any moment from the powers that be at Warner Bros., but like anything Lindsay Lohan-related, this rumour is spreading around the internet like wildfire.

Speculation surrounding Zack Snyder's "Superman" shifted direction earlier this week when it was revealed that Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike were all vying for a lead female role in the film that was not Lois Lane (though yes, despite some confusion, that character will still be in the film). Guesses were made at what the role might be -- Lana Lang or Cat Grant perhaps -- however, the part might be one that we've seen before.
