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!
