Over the years, Diane Lane has turned in some awesome performances, and she is pretty good looking to boot. But when has good looks got someone a movie role? Oh yeah, ALL THE TIME! But the combination of good looks and great acting chops is what landed her the role of Martha Kent, the mother of Superman, in the reboot of the Superman franchise!
Only a few months ago The Tudors star, Henry Cavill, was cast as the new Superman. While I expected the next role to be cast was either Lois Lane or Lex Luthor, it was the mother of Superman. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the director, Zack Snyder said:
“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.”
Are you ready for a Superman Reboot?
