Man of Steel‘s new mother: Ayelet Zurer

Ayelet Zurer joins "Man of Steel"

The beautiful Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer has signed on to play the mom of Superman in the upcoming Zack Snyder helmed “Man of Steel”.

Deadline says it’s a done deal and she’ll start filming this week, replacing Julia Ormond as the original Kryptonian Lara Lor-Van. And that’s about all we know about the switch.

You might recognise Zurer from “Angels & Demons, “Vantage Point” and “Munich” alongside Eric Bana. She’s pretty awesome.

Obviously, the film also stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe.

So yes, you’ll be watching!
