Diane Lane Talks About Playing Superman’s Mom

In a word, she’s really excited. What, you want more? Okay, here’s what she told USAWeekend about playing Superman’s adopted Earth mom (Henry Cavill is one lucky dude):

It’s going to be a wild ride… I love [director Zack Snyder’s] 300 and I’m very flattered to play Martha Kent and live up to his vision. It’s pretty cool… I’ve always wanted to raise a good man. I thought that was the biggest challenge a woman could have, and so I get the embarrassment of riches.

Okay, not a whole lot of news value there, but it does justify me posting this picture of Diane Lane (below). You’re welcome.

The Man of Steel and his mom reboots in 2012. (You can read a previous interview with Zack Snyder here.)
