Almost nothing is known about the plot to director Zack Snyder's Superman franchise reboot, Man of Steel. The director has said that his take on DC Comics' most famous superhero will be "different" than previous movies and that it will "focus on the early days of Superman," but that's not much to go on. We do know that Kryptonian madman General Zod (played by Michael Shannon) will appear in the movie, but even that is not necessarily a clue as to what obstacles Superman (Henry Cavill) will face. After all, when Zod first appeared on screen in Richard Donner's Superman, it was only in a cameo role. But, thanks to actress Diane Lane, who will play Superman's adoptive mother, Martha Kent, we now know that Man of Steel will definitely be an origin story going back to when Superman was a Superbaby. what did lane say? >> Posted 04.15.11 by BrentJS
Director Zack Snyder is trying to promote his upcoming Sucker Punch movie, but can't escape questions about his next project, Superman: The Man of Steel. Snyder recently revealed that his Superman will take that approach that "there’s been no other [Superman] movies" before it, an idea which may have been born from Snyder's perspective that the Superman franchise needs to be fixed. When talking with HollywoodOutbreak, Snyder revealed that, as a movie franchise, Superman is "broken."

I think Superman is broken and needs to be fixed, from a movie standpoint. He is the frickin' biggest superhero on the planet, he is the why of all superheroes, the father of every superhero.
Like, we were just talking about this: I'm like, really, Thor? Thor has a movie? Like, really? And there's no Superman movie? It's like the world is out of balance. It's like we lost our minds here people, come on.
Earlier this month, Diane Lane was the first cast member to join Henry Cavill in director Zack Snyder's Superman reboot. Lane will play Martha Kent, the adoptive mother of Cavill's Clark Kent.
Lane told USA Weekend that her first act of preparation was to watch Snyder's Watchmen "to remind myself of what an audacious, brilliant man Zack Snyder is." Lane ready to play mom >> Posted 03.17.11 by Ryan
Director Zack Snyder's Superman franchise reboot has just gained its second cast member and first Academy Award nominee. In a press release distributed yesterday, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures announced that Diane Lane, who was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Unfaithful (2002), will star in Superman: The Man of Steel (working title) as Martha Kent, the kind-hearted Kansan who, along with her husband, Jonathan, found and raised the orphaned alien baby, the "Last Son" of the doomed planet of Krypton. Lane joins British actor Henry Cavill, who was cast in January as Kal-El, aka Clark Kent, aka Superman. what did snyder have to say about Lane? >> Posted 03.03.11 by BrentJS
Variety reports that Diane Lane will star in Secretariat, Disney's upcoming movie about the relationship between the Triple Crown-winning race horse and his owner, Penny Chenery.
Reportedly, it will focus on Chenery's life, from her humble beginnings in Virginia to her rise as the "first lady of racing." Randall Wallace -- who wrote Braveheart and is working on the upcoming adaptation of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged -- is directing from a script by Mike Rich (Finding Forrester, The Rookie).
The movie is scheduled for release sometime next year. Posted 06.11.09 by reelz
