Diane Lane on Superman: The Man Of Steel (2012)


We learned a couple weeks ago that Diane Lane will be playing Martha Kent in the Zack Snyder directed Superman.

Lane spoke with USA Today about the new movie, commenting on portraying the mother to the iconic character and also on director Zack Snyder.

“It’s going to be a wild ride,” she said.

Lane informed us that she recently watched Snyder’s Watchmen, again, “to remind myself of what an audacious, brilliant man Zack Snyder is,” she says.

She then gave us her thoughts on playing Ma Kent, “I’m very flattered to play Martha Kent and live up to his vision. It’s pretty cool.”

Lane went on to state how she excited was about having Superman as a son.

“I’ve always wanted to raise a good man,” she quips. “I thought that was the biggest challenge a woman could have, and so I get the embarrassment of riches.”

Superman flies into theaters December 2012 directed by Zack Snyder starring Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Superman, Kevin Costner as Jonathan “Pa” Kent and Diane Lane as Martha “Ma” Kent.
