Diane Lane has officially landed a role in the new Zack Snyder-directed Superman reboot! Lane will play Superman’s adoptive mother Martha Ma Kent.
Just last month there were rumors swirling that Kevin Costner was in talks to play Superman’s father Jonathan Pa Kent, but those rumors have not been confirmed. Aside of Lane, the only other role that has been solidified is that of Superman himself by Henry Cavill.
“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,” Synder said in the release. “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.”
