Ayelet Zurer Steps Into Julia Ormond’s MAN OF STEEL Role

Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer (Angels & Demons, Munich) will be placing Julia Ormond in the role of Superman’s Kryptonian mother Lara in Zack Snyder’s currently in production Man Of Steel.

Deadline is reporting the substitution but has no idea as to why the switch is being made. Zurer is supposed to be filming her scenes this week. Since this will undoubtedly be all indoor, set-bound filming, don’t expect any sneak peeks at her costume in the same way we have been getting for much of the rest of the production while it has been filming on location.

Zurer will be working opposite Russell Crowe, who will be playing Superman’s Kryptonian father Jor-El. It isn’t known if she’ll have scenes with the film’s other Kryptonian characters the villainous General Zod (Michael Shannon) and his right-hand woman Faora (Antje Traue).

Man Of Steel is currently set for a June 14, 2013 release.
