Morpheus Cast As Superman's Boss!

on Monday, August 8, 2011

I knew I forgot about something. I briefly spoke about it in the previous post about the new black "Ultimate Spider-Man". A few days ago, it was announced that Laurence Fishbourne, Morpheus from "The Matrix" franchise, is the latest cast member to join Zach Snyder's 2013 reboot, "Superman: The Man Of Steel".
He will be playing Clark Kent's boss at the Daily Planet. That boss is Chief Editor, Perry White! Fishbourne will be playing the black Perry White. Again, another black casting for a white role. The previous one being Marvel deciding to make the new Spider-Man a black guy called Miles Morales.
Hopefully Fishbourne's Perry White will have more screen time in the new "Superman" film. Last time in 2006's "Superman Returns", he wasn't in it for long. He did though get saved by the Man of Steel at the end of the film, which was pretty cool.
