Hey, don't say anything to him at school unless you want to get thrown into the sun, but Superman's new mom is hot! Ayelet Zurer has joined the cast of Zack Snyder's currently filming Man of Steel in the role of Kal-El's Kryptonian mom, Lara Lor-Van. Zurer is best known for her roles in Angels & Demons and Munich.

You might remember that Juila Ormond was originally set to play the part opposite Russell Crowe as Superman's father, Jor-El. There are no reports as to why Ormond has left the project but one can imagine that with Russell Crowe's passionate views on circumcision and Jewish people, the Israeli Zurer will fit right in.
