With Kevin Costner rumored to play Johnathan Kent and Daniel-Day Lewis and Viggo Mortensen rumored to play the badass General Zod, Superman: Man Of Steel director Zack Snyder announced yesterday that Diane Lane has been officially cast as Superman’s saintly adoptive mother. THR reports:
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures said late Wednesday that the actress is set as “the only mother Clark Kent has ever known.” “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,” Snyder said in a statement. “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.”
Well, I hope the citizens of Metropolis can get their concealed weapons permits soon, because it might a little harder to defend against a supervillain while Superman is jacking off in his room and typing “Martha Kent” in the MILF Hunters search bar.
