I'm a little tired of the "Super duper eldery" person comics cliche...
I didn't say she should look like Katherine Hepburn circa "On Golden Pond." I just found it odd that she looked barely older than the love interest for her son.

No, she looks nearly ten years younger than she is. She's 48 and looks about 40. Adams is 39 according to IMDB. They look more like sisters than two women who are supposed to be playing characters of different generations.

Diane Lane = hot. Clark is lucky to have her for a mom.

Amy Adams = not as hot as Diane Lane. But as they say, any port in a storm, eh?

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Check out the opening video sequence now up on the official Man of Steel website. A little creepy, yet cool. Revealing a little info., but not much more than what we gathered from the full-on trailers.

Well, they are going to use Ma Kent in the scenes of Clark growing up, so that's about right.

And if she does appear when Clark is an adult they could always use old age makeup, or digitally age her.

Oh no, an actress may or may not have looked age appropriate in the G-Man's limited opinion. Who the fuck cares that she's, what, pushing 50 and would completely and utterly believably be the mother of a 30 year old (which, incidentally, is how old Henry Cavill is)? She looks good for her age, despite her completely and utterly real age. What a crime, what a horrible, horrible crime. IT IS COMPLETELY UNFORGIVABLE! THE MOVIE SUCKS NOW!!!

Zod sounds fantastic. Apparently this is counting down to a trailer on Tuesday?

Maybe that's because she plays Ma Kent in scenes that presumably take place about 20 years before Clark first meets Lois Lane?

That's the theory.
There's a Kryptonian countdown on this site http://www.iwillfindhim.com/ which points to Tuesday at 5:15pm US-PST and 8:15pm US-EST, and on Wednesday at 1:15am UK-GMT and 10:15am Australian-EST
