Director Zack Snyder is apparently interested in having Kevin Costner join his upcoming reboot of the iconic DC Comics superhero Superman. If Kevin Costner joins the project, he will be starring opposite Henry Cavill, who was confirmed as Clark Kent earlier this year.

There are no specifics on which DC comics character Kevin Costner is being eyed to portray, and its not known if he will be a good guy or a villain. The role will be a key part of the new storyline that Zack Snyder has cooked up with Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer.

Superman is scheduled to being shooting later this year, which means we'll start hearing various different actors confirmed for this superhero adventure in the very near future.
