Diane Lane cast as Superman's mom

Zack Snyder has chosen Diane Lane to play the crucial Superman role of Martha Kent—crucial because, in Snyder’s words, “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.” Ah, so Zack Snyder is one of the people who saw Jumper. Anyway, if Lane's casting as the matronly Ma Kent is any indication of the sliding age scale here, Henry Cavill's love interest will be one of the girls from Toddlers And Tiaras.
