The out of the box casting continues to be awesome. If Lex is going to be in this movie, I think they'll go with someone totally unexpected for the role as well.
Tom Cruise?

Just cast some bald chick and call her Alexis Luthor!

And then have a Superman who doesn't know whether to punch her or kiss her!

Seems more like shock value or pandering if you ask me.
This board has seen a few threads about minorities in an uproar, LastAirbender springs instantly to mind, if Hollywood didn't look hard enough for a minority actor to fill the role of a minority.

You can't tell me there is a shortage of 45-60yr old white men to play Perry White. This isn't even remotely like the casting of Kingpin in Daredevil where the physical limitation + acting ability to come into play. Perry is any standard man.

It's "out of the box" thinking and something to celebrate if a traditional and obvious white role is racially recast. However, here and other places if a white gets a role due to limitations in the casting pool the internets go wild.

Just pointing it out, don't hate on me for just pointing it out.

Perry Black.


Someone had to say it.

I think it's a good choice. It's not like Perry's colour is an essential quality to his character. If he's 'any standard man', why can't he be a black one? No, it's not like Kingpin, where Michael Clarke Duncan was about the only actor out there big enough to play him. But neither is he like JJ Jameson, with an iconic look (flattop, Hitler moustache) that needs to be recreated. It's not like Jackie Gleason, Frank Langella, Lane Smith and Michael McKean are all of the same mould, is it?

There are few actors out there with as much presence, character and authority as Fishburne. He's totally believable as a grizzled and experienced editor. Works for me.

^ I always mix them up, Cooper having been a child actor in the 1920s or 30s.
