Looks like Jor-El has a new baby mama as news is breaking that Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer has now replaced Julia Ormond as Superman’s mother, Lara Lor-Van.

So far, per Deadline, there is no reason given for the cast change by Orman or director Zack Snyder. What is known is that Zurer will begin filming her scenes this week in British Columbia where the production team is now located.

Zurer is best known by her role as Vittoria Vetra in ‘Angels and Demons’ opposite Tom Hanks. She has also appeared in ‘Munich’ and ‘Vantage Point.’ Although this is a small role in this big movie, it’s a big plus in Zurer’s career as it has the potential to expose her talent to more movie goers. Zurer will be playing opposite Russell Crowe who has been cast as Jor-El.

So what do you think of the cast change?

Man of Steel’ is set to release on June 14, 2013 and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe and Michael Shannon.
