A little shake up in casting for Superman: Man of Steel.  According to Deadline, director Zack Snyder has replaced Julia Ormond with Israeli born actress Ayelet Zurer for the role of Superman’s Kryptonian mother, Lara Lor-Van.  Deadline is reporting that Zurer is set to begin filming this week.

There was no reason given (yet) as to why Snyder replaced Ormond seemingly at the last minute.  The film also stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne and Russell Crowe and is scheduled for release in June 2013.
