Zack Snyder loads up on canon, casts a young Lana Lang

Zack Snyder's not done casting for Man of Steel. Sure, he's got Superman, Lois Lane and Perry White, but what about Lana Lang? Apparently Clark's Smallville sweetheart also gets some screen time in Snyder's Superman reboot.

According to the Superman Super Site, a young actress named Jadin Gould has joined the Man of Steel cast. She'll play the character as a 13-year-old who knows Clark during his early years. Unfortunately, Lana only appears in a flashback, but we hope she does something interesting. It would be a shame to waste such a great character.

Some of the most notable actresses to play Lang include Kristin Kreuk (Smallville), Stacy Haiduk (The Adventures of Superboy), Annette O'Toole (Superman III) and Diane Sherry (Superman: The Movie). As you can tell, Gould's a lot younger than her predecessors. What's up with that?

Since Lang's scene will be a flashback, we wonder what makes Clark think of her? Does Lois bring on the memory or does something bad happen?

What are your theories?

Man of Steel is scheduled to hit theaters June 14, 2013.
