Diane Lane is Superman’s Mom in Zack Snyder’s Reboot


It still amazes me that Diane Lane is now playing moms in the movies. Sheesh. Where does the time go? Anyways, the beautiful (and always will be) actress has joined the cast of Zack Snyder’s “Superman” reboot, and will be playing Martha Kent, Superman’s adopted human mom.

Official press release ahoy:

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures announced today that Oscar®-nominated actress Diane Lane will play Martha Kent, the only mother Clark Kent has ever known, in the new Superman movie to be directed by Zack Snyder.

Snyder stated, “This was a very important piece of casting for me because Martha Kent is the woman whose values helped shape the man we know as Superman. We are thrilled to have Diane in the role because she can convey the wisdom and the wonder of a woman whose son has powers beyond her imagination.”

Lane will star with Henry Cavill, who was recently announced as the new Clark Kent/Superman.

Curious that Lane is the first official castmember announced after Cavill, despite all the rumors of Kevin Costner playing Pa Kent and Viggo Mortensen as General Zod. Maybe soon.

“Superman” reboots in 2012.

    First Cavill, who was one of my top picks for Clark/Superman now Lane as Martha. This is some really good casting news. Hopefully the rest of the rumored cast fall into place. With Kevin Costner as Johnathan Kent, Viggo Mortensenn as General Zod and Diane Kruger as Ursa that would be a bad ass cast! Just need to cast Non, Jimmy, Perry and Lois.

      Yessir! And may I throw in Anthony LaPaglia as Perry. We’ve already gone through Lois, and i believe someone said WWE’s the great Kali as Non, but I’d go with Nathan Jones. For Jimmy, well lets update him and make him more fearless photographer and less cheesy young naive kid. No idea who to cast though.

        Yeah that was me who said Khali for Non. I could see Nathan Jones too though. They are both such intimidating physical specimens! I’ve always liked Jones for Gladiator in a sequel to Punisher:War Zone movie (which they’ll probably never make.) I like Lapaglia for a younger Perry. What about Michael Chiklis as a younger Mr. White? He has the gruff demeanor and plays a hell of a dick (The Shield), he could also do nurturing (The Commish). I like your new take on Jimmy too. My one and only pick would be Brian Geraghty (Jarhead, I Know Who Killed Me). The kid from Returns was good too but obviously he will not be recast.

          I like all those choices, though Chicklis with hair would weird me out lol. Stacy Keach would be a good older Perry.
