Julia Ormond An Absentee Mom In ‘Superman: Man Of Steel’

Thursday, June 23 by

Every superhero has a mom. Even the bastard ones. And it’s looking like Superman‘s mom, Lara Lor-Van, will be played by Julia Ormond in Superman: Man of Steel. She will have to be something of a superhero herself, as her screen husband will be Russell Crowe. I wonder if kryptonite could weaken his surly demeanor?

Of course, the new Superman will be played by Henry Cavill, who doesn’t quite look young enough to be Ormond’s son, but I’m sure it will work out just fine if you slather the two of them in makeup and put her in an apron or something.

The Crowe-Ormond paternity set will give birth to the wunderkind raised by the duo of Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Ma and Pa Kent, who seem a lot more middle-American and in keeping with the corn-fed image of the comic hero. Frankly, it’s hard to imagine Russell Crowe even being able to raise a goldfish, even with the help of Ormond. (Deadline)

    What kind of a stupid title is this?  who writes this rubbish? how is the charactor of Superman mother an absentee mom? jeesus – his parnets die shortly after sending him to earth to escape the doomed planet – they dont leave him at home and go out to party…..you guys are worse than the stupid papers.

    be clever at least with your headings or any part of the story.

    LARA LOR VAN was her name before she married Jor – El its her madien name – names are then shortend to just the first name…LARA

    Do some research fine but dont twist stuff around – ytrying to sound clever or incittful is one thing misealding people is another.

    Yeh its JUST a comic its made up…….I espect Pakin to run her mouth of with half remebered details – a webiste trying to be clever should try a little harder

    …and now Superman is a BASTARD? bys whos definition that his parents are not married in a legal EARTH ceremony? – this article has annoyed me so much I cant even spell properly.

    ..and she doesnt look old enough to play Cavills mom? – you complete idiots….she has a baby (Kal -El) the baby is raisded on Earth by foster parents…how is how she looks confusing? Does she not look old enough to have a baby?

    Please whoever wrote this  go out and ask the next person you see to slap you in the face for being so utterly stupid.

    Oh or is this supposed to be ironic or clever in some Stephen Cobert way?

    cos its not…..I may post more as I re read the dumbest collection of words Ive seen online in ages..and thats sating something.

    ..SEEM a lot more American and in keeping? – they ARE American ! thats the point…..

    Born Kal – EL – raised as Calrk Kent in AMERICA by AMERICAN becomes Superman.

    He is an ORPHAN –  an illigal alien being not  human but as far as written identical to one – powered by earths sun.

    The comic hero has a corn fed image cos hes raised in kansas ON CORN….OMG how many words in this article are so hopeless.

    PENN COLLINS whoever you are – Ive read some of your other articles are not all are this dumb…please delete this one before it spreads over the net showing what a fool can write if given some space online (thats you by the way in case sarcasm isnt understood there)

    …not able to raise a goldfish?
    He is an actor playing a someone else – you known pretending.
    The actor has TWO SONS in real life if that hard for you to imagine.

    ..and he doesnt raise Superman does he – he saves him as a baby…….any more clever remarks need sorting out please let me – I have the whole of the internet at my dispoal and not a spell checker if you are looking for ANY pointless retort.

    I can look things up or at least have some inclantion about the story im writing unline your good self (sarcasm)

    she doesnt have to be something of a superhero cos she is playing opposite Russel Crowe…why does she? – what is the point you are making?

    No one has powers on Krypton  – only Earth yellow sun and gravity give Supes powers.
    There isnt any kryptonite until the planet explodes as it is the remains.

    Will he be surly in this film?….well probably not unless the script says so…..you know a film – pretend..

    Not a reality show about real actors –

    Superhero are fictional of course – im well aware – but try and be clever about this stuff ok – to the casual fan it might seem clever and or funny – but is that the type of people you reach on this website?

    No its not is it – I like I hope many more people epsect a little more wit and stuff and a little less tabloid fox news type bullshit.
