I have been on the road for work and so I am playing some catchup but 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. Slated for release in December 2012, the new Superman movie will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. I have always had a huge crush on Diane Lane and consider her to be one of the most talented and beautiful older actresses in Hollywood. She will bring a strong dynamic to the upcoming film. Now the question is will Kevin Costner be playing Clark Kent’s father?
