Diane-LaneOscar-nominated actress Diane Lane has signed on for the upcoming Zack Snyder directed “Superman” reboot.

She will play Clark Kent’s adopted mother, Martha Kent, according to reports.

In a press release, director Zak Snyder said: “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.”

It’s been rumored that Martin Sheen could be cast as Jonathan Kent.

    Always been a fan of Diane Lane.

    Bit of an ambiguous caption :^) Do we have someone cast as lois lane yet?

  3. Actually I felt the headline was a bit of entertainment journalistic genius. Kudos Michael. Also, with Diane onboard and the possibility of Sheen as Jonathan, my expectation for this film has moved up a couple of notches.

  4. @ Sam . Thank you. Sometimes the headlines are just there and you can’t resist.

  5. Martin Sheen is kind of old for the part I think. Or maybe I am thinking how young Jonathan Kent was in Smallville.

    You can’t have Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben and then Johnathan Kent. Pick a universe, DC or Marvel.
