You thought Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel cast news ended in July, when the movie started production? You were wrong.
Julia Ormond had been cast back in June as Kal-El’s Kryptonian mom, opposite Russell Crowe as Jor-El, but now Snyder has brought in Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer to play the role instead.
The news was also confirmed by Deadline but they are, still trying to figure out why. Ormond has a steady career. Zurer was recently seen opposite Tom Hanks in Angels & Demons and has a role in the upcoming Darling Companion with Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline and Dianne Wiest.
The movie opens June 14 next summer.
