Diane Lane to play Martha Kent in Zack Snyder's Superman
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Diane Lane has been cast in the upcoming reboot of SUPERMAN from director Zack Snyder. She will join the Man of Steel to be played by Henry Cavill and possibly Kevin Costner who is up for Jonathan Kent and Viggo Mortensen who is circling the role of General Zod. Lane and Cavill are the only two actors confirmed for the film, but if Costner and Mortensen sign on this could be the making of quite a good film. I personally love the idea of Costner and Lane playing parents to Clark Kent, they seem so wholesome it could totally be believable. Still no word on when shooting will begin, but SUPERMAN is slated to hit theaters in December 2012.
Being from Kansas, I hold the Superman story near and dear to my heart, and although Zack Snyder could possibly be considered one of my least favorite directors, I’m kinda looking forward to this film. He better not ruin it by choosing someone lame to play Lois Lane like Bryan Singer did in SUPERMAN RETURNS.
