According to Latino Review, the role of 'Jor-El,' who serves as Superman's father, has apparently been cast in Bryan Singer's upcoming comic book adaptation, Superman Returns...

Apparently, none other than Marlon Brando himself! Yes, yes we all know he is no longer with us so just how will this happen?
