Diane Lane to Be the Next Martha Kent

Diane Lane is set to portray Clark Kent’s mother Martha in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot. The Academy-Award nominee most recently led the Disney sports drama Secretariat; her next project is Cinema Verite, an HBO film also starring James Gandolfini and Tim Robbins, according to TheWrap.

Lane has stayed relevant and improved upon her craft since her days as a child star. She’ll definitely add something to the table playing a nuturing figure to Henry Cavill, though I’m anxious about how well she’ll fit into this new Superman universe. Regardless, she’s been cast, and we can only hope for the best.

Wouldn’t it be fun if Lane’s real-life husband – and Oscar nominee – Josh Brolin signed on to play Clark’s father? The role has been rumored for Kevin Costner to this point and it looks like with Lane's casting that Warner Bros. wants a name. Stay tuned for further updates.
