The DC Extended Universe It has several films in which some faces and characters are repeated, but there are times when the actors do not have more than one presence. At the start of the new movie saga there was a Hollywood legend who was part of a project, but to this day he is not remembered for this role.
After the release of Zack Snyder’s cut of The Justice League, the DCEU entered a stage of change and is preparing for its next releases. Black Adam, The Flash, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, Batgirl and Shazam! Fury of the Gods are the films announced so far, while series such as that of Peacemaker.
+ The actor who worked in DC Comics and everyone forgot
In 2008 Warner Bros. accepted proposals to carry out a reboot of Superman with Christopher Nolan in production and Zack Snyder directing. Henry Cavill was chosen to embody the character and little by little they were announcing the rest of the cast, in which we find nothing more and nothing less than the Hollywood star of the 80s and 90s, Kevin Costner.
The actor played Jonathan Kent in fiction, Clark’s father and Martha’s husband. Although his passage is not one of the most remembered by fans, it had great significance in his choice for comics realism, as he explained. Snyder: “We are talking about a situation where, whatever the action or drama of the film, our first priority is to make sure it is portrayed as realistically as possible.”he said at the time.
Costner’s appearances were mostly seen in Man of Steel (2013) and then had brief presences through photos in Justice League (2017) and Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021). It is clear that being a secondary figure would not have a prominent role and even his name would be far below other actors. Yet today he can proudly say that at one point he was Superman’s father, just like Marlon Brando in 1977.
