Recently the casting of Kevin Coster as Jonathan “Pa” Kent in the upcoming reboot of Superman was rumored to be in consideration. While that has yet to be confirmed one new addition to the cast has been. Diane Lane is on board to play Martha “Ma” Kent.

In early versions of the comics the Kent’s die soon after Clark graduates High School, but the more recent stories have them living much longer and becoming important supporting characters. This represents the first official casting decision after choosing Henry Cavill to be Clark Kent. The Zack Snyder directed movie is targeted to release in December 2012 which means it will be gearing up for production within the next few months.
