Looks like Superman’s mum doesn’t think he’s the most special boy in all the world, or at least she isn’t that impressed with his superpowered friends. When asked whether the Justice League movie will blow Marvel’s The Avengers out of the water, Diana Lane simply said: “No.”
In an appearance on Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen Live, Lane was asked by a viewer whether she could spoil any secrets about the upcoming superhero crossover, as well as whether Justice League will be better than The Avengers, which continues in 2018 with Infinity War.
“No and no,” Lane replied. “Short but honest. I hate to disappoint.”
Lane, who plays Superman’s mum Martha Kent, joins a growing list of Man of Steel actors who’ve poured salt on the wound that is the DCEU — barring Wonder Woman, which we hope is the shining light in a sea of meh. Laurence Fishburne (who played Perry White in Man of Steel) previously admitted that Marvel is kicking DC’s arse, and Amy Adams (Lois Lane) seemingly brushed off the fact that she was in the upcoming film last year.
Justice League comes out November 16. Ma Kent will presumably check it out once it comes to Netflix or something.
