The ‘Martha’ scene in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Whether you thought it fit or not, it was certainly one of the (if not THE) most talked about movie scene of 2016. Personally, I didn’t think it was that bad, especially if you consider the fact that WB was asking Zack Snyder to make like 7 movies into one giant movie. It’s actually pretty clever if you take that into account.
Well, Diane Lane recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, and was asked about that specific scene, and here’s what she had to say:
“It’s the compassion for a man who’s lost his mother. When you understand the wound, you can work better with people.”
I think that’s the one thing that most people don’t really think about, but if you already have your own personal thoughts on the scene, me persuading you to think any differently probably won’t happen.

Lane was also asked about Justice League:
“I don’t think I’m allowed to talk much about it. But it was good for me, selfishly, to have a reunion with everyone and meeting some of the new characters.”
“I want a scene with Nicole, that’s what I really want. Perhaps in another [sequel]!”
Justice League hits theaters November 17th, 2017.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
