If you build a Superman reboot, Kevin Costner will come. Specifically, he’ll come on board as Clark Kent’s dad for Zack Snyder‘s Superman: Man of Steel.

It’s being reported that Costner has been officially cast as Jonathan “Dadman” Kent, opposite Diane Lane as Martha Kent, along with Britishy Brit Henry Cavill as the cape-wearing flying dude himself. Superman: Man of Steel has even been added to Costner’s Wikipedia filmography, and the Wikipedia is always right, all the time.

The casting move gives the superhero action film broader appeal. Even though this movie will undoubtedly be aimed at precious teens and young adults, old folk money is still technically considered legal tender in America.

Warner Bros. is currently hoping to POW this into theaters December 2012. (Deadline)

Oscar nominee Diane Lane (Secretariat) has been cast in Zack Snyder‘s Superman reboot, alongside Mr. Britishy Brit winner Henry Cavill as Capeguy himself. She’ll be portraying Martha Kent, Superman’s (human) mom. Though she is a mere mortal, she brings the power of actor credibility to the team, and when she focuses this power, Lane can magnetically pull women over 35 into the theater, perhaps even if it’s a superhero movie.

Hopefully, Martha will love and guide a young Clark Kent into his role as Superman a littl faster than, say, 10 seasons of a television show. Yeah, it’s awesome to get quality actors into these talky-talk roles, but what about confirmation on the villains? And who has been cast as Explosion #37? Still no word from Warner Bros. on that, though we do have a quote about Martha Kent from Snyder:

“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,” Snyder said in a statement. “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.”

Way to put a cap on Martha’s imagination abilities, Snyder. In the comics, she’s very imaginitive, and in the DC universe Martha directs a little movie called Owls of Ga’hoole. So there.

Superman leaps over tall buildings and into theaters December 2012. (Hollywood Reporter)

Lane, Malkovich, Silly Hats: ‘Secretariat’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/lane-malkovich-silly-hats-secretariat-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/lane-malkovich-silly-hats-secretariat-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Just in time for the Oaks Celebration of the 136th Kentucky Derby, we have the trailer for Secretariat. Directed by Randall Wallace, it stars Diane Lane as a horse owner with a vagina (GASP!), that attempts to lead her thoroughbred to Triple Crown glory. John Malkovich co-stars as the horse's trainer and personal stylist. Here that swelling score? That means you can lump this one into Disney's growing catalogue of "Animals Who Defy the Odds to Blow Your F*cking Mind." To differentiate it from Seabiscuit, the filmmakers could have taken a few liberties with the material. My suggestion: the true story of a horse who ate too much, and lounged around like he was in the Caribbean. Here's an artist's interpretation of what that may look like. Check out the trailer after the jump. Secretariat charges into theaters October 8, 2010.
