Diane Lane has joined the cast of Superman!

She will be playing Martha Kent, "the only mother Clark Kent has ever known."

Director Zack Snyder spoke of the casting news, saying:

"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."

Diane Lane joins Henry Cavill, who will be playing the new Clark Kent/Superman. There's no confirmation yet, however, Kevin Costner is said to be a "person of interest" for the role of Jonathan Kent and Viggo Mortensen is another possibility for the role of General Zod.

The film is shaping up to have an all star cast. Can't wait to see who else will join the cast. We see tons of potential!

    I view her differently after she did "Unfaithful"………..I think it was a shitty role to play and I don't think very highly of her after taking it. I imagined her to have more class.

    Henry Cavill = HOT

    She's beautiful.

    I should see "Unfaithful," like 'April 20th' bitched about in comment #1

    Ugg why couldn't they just have Brandon Routh play superman again? I have when they change cast members as if we won't know the difference. Routh played superman superbly.

    Uh oh. I view it a little differently. Sometimes when they start pumping up the star appeal, they are trying to make a quick buck because of a weak script. This may turn out to be a real P.O.S.

    Re: April 20th – She got an Oscar nod for that so it was a good enough role for the Academy.
