Diane Lane was recently a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the actress got to talking about her role as Martha Kent in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.
On Wednesday’s show she said of the role, “I’m not allowed to talk about it. It’s top secret.”
“I’m gonna be in one of those huge movies! I can’t wait to see it already,” she said, “I’m kind of amazed.”
She also spoke more about the intense secrecy when it comes to a huge film like Man of Steel, especially the script.
“Of course, there is a lot of secrecy in today’s world with the Internet and everything, and rumors get started, so I had to read the script under lock and key in a room. You go to the offices, and it’s a locked door and the curtains are drawn and, you know, that was the time I had.”
But the actress also spoke with E!Online recently saying she was allowed just three hours with the script and gave a hint as to the plot.
“I’m really not allowed to talk much about it, I think, but it does cover the entire range of years, from infancy on.”
Lane has worked with Superman before…sort of. She starred alongside Ben Affleck who played original Superman, George Reeves, in Hollywoodland.
“When I worked on Hollywoodland, I got to experience sort of the behind the scenes of what it was like for the people who were making the television series that I grew up watching, so it’s all very inbred in my mind,” she told E. ”But this is going to be a whole reinvention. A visitation and a reinvention.”
Lane will be co-starring along with Kevin Costner playing her husband Jonathan and Henry Cavill playing her adoptive son, Clark.
