Kevin Costner looks set to play Clark Kent’s adopted father, Jonathan Kent in the upcoming project ‘Superman: Man of Steel."

Costner will join Diane Lane, who's been cast as Martha Kent, and Henry Cavill, who is set to play the lead role of Clark Kent/Superman.

Zack Synder will be directing this latest cinematic adaption of the DC hero’s comics.

"Jonathan Kent is the only father figure Clark has ever had, the man who was there to help Clark understand what he was meant to do in the world as Superman," said Snyder in a statement.

"Kevin will be able to communicate the quiet strength of this rural American man who raised the greatest super hero of all time."
