While male stars can be cast as action heroes with 20-something love interests well into their 50s (looking at you, Tom Cruise), women are boxed into smaller roles as they age — and eventually, even the biggest female stars can end up playing the mother of a leading man who’s almost the same age as they are.

Yesterday filmmaker Zack Snyder tweeted a picture of himself and soon-to-be Aquaman Jason Momoa prepping for their next superheroic adventure, Justice League – Part 1, which, according to Entertainment Weekly, begins filming on April 11.
