Diane Lane Is Superman’s Mom

Superman has a new mama, and she's Diane Lane. Lane has signed on to the new Zack Snyder–helmed Superman reboot, and will star opposite Henry Cavill's Clark Kent. This casting is supposedly super-important because, says Snyder, "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.” And also, Superman's mom is going to be really hot.
