Actress Diane Lane found herself in the middle of a geek firestorm last week when a video interview with her went viral due to the potential implications of an answer she gave.
Asked a two part question – could she give any spoilers about “Justice League” and does she thinks it will be better than The Avengers? Lane answered: “No, and no. Short but honest, I hate to disappoint.”
While her remarks were likely aimed at the first part of the question, some fans have taken them as insinuating that “Justice League” won’t come close to matching “The Avengers” critically.
ComicBookMovie.com reached out to Lane’s representatives and got a response:
“Diane meant “sorry to disappoint” in reference to revealing anything concerning “Justice League” that is not already out in the public, and, was declining to comment on a film (Avengers) that she has not seen. She is thrilled to continue her role as Martha Kent, and appreciates your excitement for “Justice League”. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to clarify this.”
“Justice League,” however it turns out, is finally released this November.
