Diane Lane is The Mother Of "Superman: Man Of Steel"

Actress Diane Lane ("Secretariat") will play 'Martha Kent', the adoptive mother of the alien 'Kal-El', in director Zack Snyder's upcoming "Superman: Man Of Steel" feature now prepping to start in Vancouver.

"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'," said Snyder.

"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."

To be produced by Christopher Nolan ("Batman Begins") and scripted by David S. Goyer ("Blade") , the new film is scheduled to be released December 2012.
