Actress Diane Lane has landed the role of Martha Kent in the upcoming superhero movie “Superman: Man of Steel”.
Warner Brothers has confirmed that Diane Lane, 46, will play the adoptive mother of Clark Kent because they feel she will convey the “wisdom and wonder” needed for that role.
Director Zack Snyder said: “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.”
Kevin Costner will reportedly play Superman’s adoptive father Jonathan Kent, but it has not been confirmed.
Clark Kent’s character will be played by British actor Henry Cahill.
