Zack Snyder has revealed the final piece in the casting jigsaw for upcoming Superman film Man Of Steel, with Laurence Fishburne signing up to play editor-in-chief of The Daily Planet, Perry White.

According to the LA Times, Fishburne will become the first African-American actor to play the role in any of the many adaptations of the Superman comics. It's another refreshing piece of thinking from Snyder, having already cast a Brit as Metropolis's all-American saviour.

In any case, White's racial background is far less important than his role as a tough but fair authority figure, qualities that Fishburne should have no problems in bringing to the big screen.

White made his first comic-book appearance in Superman #7, way back in 1940. He was played by Frank Langella in 2006's Superman Returns.
