Laurence Fishburne has had a long storied career in Hollywood, and one of his more notable roles of late has been playing Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White. For fans hoping to get a little more info on the future of the DCEU and his role in it are probably going to be disappointed with an interview he gave with Den Of Geek:
Are you still on call with DC to come back as Perry White?
I don’t think I’m still on call. I was unfortunately unable to go do some work on what turned out to be the Justice League movie. I don’t know that I need to go back or if they’ll have me back or not, but I was grateful to have been a part of it. I loved working with Zack (Snyder), I think he makes an incredible superhero movie. I’m just excited to be a part of this (the MCU) now.
So you don’t know if there’s a Man of Steel 2 in the works or anything like that?
I don’t. I don’t. I haven’t heard anything about it. They just fell behind the eight-ball. I really wish they had started 20 years ago. But that’s all right, they’re where they are.
Now, granted, that doesn’t mean he won’t be returning, but it does seem to hint that the production of Man Of Steel 2 may not be as far ahead as we would like. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available!
