Diane Lane? She's a fine actress and all.... but she seems a little young to be playing a teenage Clark Kent's mother.

Smallville set the tone for Kents who aren't old fogies and it was a welcome improvement.
Like Annette O'Toole, the new Martha Kent is a SuperMILF. There were reports two weeks ago of interest in Kevin Costner for the new movie as well, presumably as Jonathan Kent. That would be amazing casting as Clark's Smallville family.

"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
The parallels are similar. Cable faced similar barriers (getting coverage in many areas, getting people used to paying for TV, providing content superior to what VHF/UHF offered), and didn't break big overnight.
