UPDATE:Latino Review has chimed in with word from an inside source and it looks like Costner is up for the role of Jonathan "Pa" Kent. Of all possible choices, it's definitely the most obvious, but hey, you've got to go with what works.

With shooting set to begin sooner rather than later, rumors concerning Zack Snyder's reboot of 'Superman' continue to swirl in. First, Henry Cavill landed the coveted role of the Man of Steel himself. Then it was all but confirmed that one of the film's villains would be the Kryptonian superwoman, Ursa. Now, Deadline brings us a vague but interesting rumor regarding who may be joining the cast next: the one and only Kevin Costner.

And that's it. The role is unspecified. Whether or not Costner has been approached or not is unspecified. Whether or not Costner is interested is unspecified. All we know is that he's a candidate for a "key role."

What could this "key role" be? What character in the Superman mythos could Costner pull off?
