    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? :lol:

    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.

    What do you mean? I'm right here.
    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

    Couldnt Zod figure out where to put the aluminum foil to make the picture clear?

    ^I would like some color in the armor but otherwise am very pleased with that look.

    Yeah, me too. I read either online or in Total Film that apparently the armor Zod wears is so big it had to be added later with CGI. I've been trying to figure out if they meant the armor we're seeing in the pics and trailers, or if there is some other bigger stuff later one? What we've seen so far doesn't look that big to me.

    This picture made me think I went into the Thor 2 thread by mistake.
