Kevin Costner Is Annoyed By His ‘Man Of Steel’ Role: ‘Why Don’t I Have Superpowers?’

The actor played Clark Kent’s adoptive father in the 2013 film.

Kevin Costner looked back on his role as Jonathan Kent in Zack Snyder’s Superman films in a recent Cinemablend/ReelBlend chat for directorial project, ‘Horizon: An American Saga.’ He joked:

“It’s just my luck to be in a superhero movie and be the only person that’s normal. I was like, ‘Really? I can’t fly? And I can’t put my fist through the wall? Maybe I should have read this thing closer. I’m a farmer?’ So, I looked at that and I said, ‘Ok, I can be that.’”

Jonathan died in a tornado after instructing Clark not to use his powers to save him to keep his identity a secret in ‘Man of Steel.’ Costner said of the scene:

“I thought it was rooted in doubt. But there was no doubt that he puts his hand up and says, ‘Stay there’ to his son.”

Jonathan Kent’s Death Scene Received Backlash

Pa Kent’s death scene sparked a controversy among viewers who claimed Clark could easily save him without outing himself. But Snyder defended the decision in an interview with GQ:

“The conversation is exactly what he says to Lois…I let my father die to protect the idea that my father was trying to protect. The idea that I wasn’t ready to be outed to the world because I wasn’t Superman. I’m just a teenager that could’ve made a mess of it. I have the power to do it, but have I ever used my powers in this way?”

He said from the DC hero’s point of view:

“‘I trusted that his vision for what I could be was bigger than him. This little incident in Kansas was not the thing that was going to expose me to the world.’”

Superman’s story is currently getting a reboot under James Gunn’s direction. Pa Kent’s fate might change in the upcoming film set for release on July 11, 2025.
