If you’re reading this, like me, you’ve probably watched Star Trek: Into Darkness. Perhaps, like me, you also have some feelings on the topic. One could argue I am comparing apples and oranges here, but given the fact Abrams and crew made some very deliberate callbacks to a certain Star Trek film? They’re inviting comparison. So, let’s chat! Spoilers ahead, you ready?
Zack Snyder has made a wise decision to put Diane Lane in as Marta Kent, the mother of Metropolis’ hero Clark Kent AKA Superman. According to Snyder, from the release, “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. 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.”
I personally am a fan and totally good with this choice. Between Henry Cavill and now Diane Lane being cast, Christopher Nolan producing, David Goyer Writing and Zack Snyder at the helm, we may very well have a worthwhile movie. Now the same could have been said about Superman Returns, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
