Everyone’s favourite cougar, Diane Lane has been cast as Martha “Ma” Kent in the upcoming Christopher Nolan produced Superman film. She joins the recently announced Superman Henry Cavill, the newest man of steel in the Zack Snyder directed film.
“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.”
Slated for release in December 2012, the new Superman movie will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
