The negotiations are on for Russell Crowe to join the cast of the Superman reboot 

Variety reports that Crowe will play the superhero's father, Jor-El, a role that the legendary Marlon Brando took on opposite Christopher Reeve in 1978.

The Tudors' Henry Cavill is on board as the title character and the rest of the cast reads like an Oscar class roster.

 

 

   

There's Oscar-nominated Amy Adams as Superman's love interest, Lois Lane, and co-stars like Academy Award winner Kevin Costner and Oscar nominees Diane Lane and Michael Shannon, plus Oscar-nominated husband-and-wife production team Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas (Inception). Not to mention Crowe's 2001 Oscar win for best actor in Gladiator.

Crowe is a late addition to the cast, as Man of Steel is scheduled to start production next month.
