April 21, 2017: Diane Lane Defends "Batman v Superman"

Much has been made of the use of the name "Martha" in the film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and the actress who played the role of Martha Kent in both "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman" spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about returning for the "Justice League" movie.

"I don't think I'm allowed to talk much about it. But it was good for me, selfishly, to have a reunion with everyone and meeting some of the new characters," Lane told The Hollywood Reporter Friday at a women's filmmaker luncheon, presented by Chanel and the Tribeca Film Festival.

As for the controversy about Superman using his adopted mother's name as a trigger to stop Batman from making a fatal mistake, the actress said, "It's the compassion for a man who's lost his mother. When you understand the wound, you can work better with people."

Diane Lane will reprise the role of Martha Kent in "Justice League," which is scheduled to be released on November 17, 2017.
