March 16, 2011: Diane Lane Discusses Playing Martha Kent

Diane Lane Zap2It.com asked Diane Lane how she felt about being cast as Martha Kent for the up-coming Superman movie, starring Henry Cavill as her adopted son.

    "It's daunting, but in a very healthy way," Lane tells Zap2it of tackling the iconic part played most recently on the CW series "Smallville" by Annette O'Toole. "It's like a dare. I have heard and read many people say, 'Do what scares you. Don't run from it, run toward it.' I am delighted to be challenged with the opportunity.

    "Zack Snyder said wonderful things in the press release, and I was like, 'Well, it's like he threw down the white glove. Now I have to bend down and pick it up.' It's wonderful, though. He's a visionary, and he'll create his own version. I find that very refreshing. People love to talk about things, and this will definitely be something to talk about."

USA Weekend has also published an article on Diane Lane...

    In preparation, Lane recently watched another comic book movie, Watchmen, again "to remind myself of what an audacious, brilliant man Zack Snyder is," she says. "I love 300 and I'm very flattered to play Martha Kent and live up to his vision. It's pretty cool." Lane, who can be seen next in the HBO film Cinema Verite, airing April 23 (and which we'll have more about next month), is stoked 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."
