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.
