Christopher Nolan has been finding an A-list Hollywood star to take on Jor-El, Superman’s biological dad, and Nolan may just have found the dad of Steel in Russell Crowe. Variety reports that Crowe is currently in negotiations to take on the role. Henry Cavill is tapped to play the Man of Steel in this series. Supporting cast include Kevin Costner, Amy Adams, and Diane Lane. Zack Snyder directs. While it’s pretty sure that Crowe is getting the dad of Steel role, Snyder is still in search for mom of Steel, which should also be a big name in Hollywood.
