Kevin Costner almost turned down ‘Man of Steel’ role

276535-kevin-costner Kevin Costner, who plays Clark Kent’s father in new film Man of Steel, has revealed that he wasn’t interested in the role and almost turned it down because he wasn’t a fan of Superman when he was a child.

The actor explained: “I don’t fall into that circle of people who like these kinds of movies. I know it’s, like, sacrilegious or whatever, but when I was a kid, I didn’t believe in him flying. I kinda knew he didn’t because I tried, I went off the couch and I went off the roof and it didn’t happen. I knew the bullets didn’t bounce off his body.”

He made a really big movie, probably the biggest movie that I will ever be a part of, and… for those that he made this movie for specifically, I think they’re going to be really satisfied because he did not leave anything to chance. We filmed it two years ago… and I saw it finally and I thought, ‘Wow! Who does this?’ It was so good. I mean he made an epic movie,” Kevin said.
