For those hoping to skip out on the obligatory Krypton blows up/Baby Kal-El gets discovered in a field stuff in The Man of Steel, tough luck. Diane Lane, who plays Ma Kent in Zack Snyder’s take on the Superman story, explains:
“I read the script under lock and key… I was locked in a room with the script and was only allowed three hours with it. I nailed it into my memory. I’m really excited. I’m really not allowed to talk much about it, I think, but it does cover the entire range of years, from infancy on.”
Sigh. Maybe this will be quick flashback business, and not a whole first act? We’ll find out soon enough - as much as the script is under lock and key, this stuff always leaks.
