Diane Lane Hints at Superman Story

Diane Lane, who will play Martha Kent in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, briefly hinted to E! Online about how early in life we’ll get to see Superman:

"I read the script under lock and key… I was locked in a room with the script and was only allowed three hours with it. I nailed it into my memory. I’m really excited. I’m really not allowed to talk much about it, I think, but it does cover the entire range of years, from infancy on."

Lane previously starred alongside Ben Affleck in the George Reeves film Hollywoodland, and she added:"When I worked on Hollywoodland, I got to experience sort of the behind the scenes of what it was like for the people who were making the television series that I grew up watching, so it’s all very inbred in my mind… But this is going to be a whole reinvention. A visitation and a reinvention."

Man of Steel, also starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner and Michael Shannon, is scheduled to hit theaters December 2012.
