    Interesting as Diane Lane has a previous Superman connection: she played Toni Mannix, the wife of studio head Eddie Mannix, who had an affair with George Reeves in Hollywoodland.

    Fan poster

    The tagline doesn't make sense though. Did Pa Kent bury some aliens in the backyard when Clark was young?

    From "Superman"'s lover to Superman's mother? That's a bit creepy...

    Although I guess it's no worse than the various Lois Lanes playing the mothers of newer Lois Lanes who then get intimate with or married to Clark/Superman (Noel Neill -> Margot Kidder; Phyllis Coates -> Teri Hatcher -> Erica Durance).

    I love that fan poster, but yeah the tag line doesn't make much sense. Any fan poster with Kevin Costner should have the tag line "If You Build It They Will Come!!"

    Right, that too. And she made a very lovely Lana.

    The tagline isn't the greatest but it's got me sold on Costner as Pa Kent.

    The casting talk is somewhat elevating my expectations for this project.

    So I guess that Kevin Costner is Jonathan Kent, then?

    The Costner stuff was just rumors to be honest. The report was that Warner Bros/DC ENT were looking at him, that there had been no actual talks Since we've heard nothing since last week on it I'll continue to think it's a rumor.

    The report had it switched around: Kevin Costner is actually playing Martha Kent and Diane Lane is playing Jonathan Kent.
