Default Ayelet Zurer as Lara Lor-Van El

Julia, we hardly knew ya:

http://www.deadline.com/2011/09/ayel...tonian-mother/
Quote:



EXCLUSIVE: Superman is getting a new mom. Ayelet Zurer, the Israeli actress who starred in Angels & Demons and who played the wife of Avner (Eric Bana) in Munich, has been set to play the role of Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s Kryptonian mother in Man of Steel. Production is underway on the Warner Bros/ Legendary film. That role was originally going to be played by Julia Ormond. I was unable to find out why director Zack Snyder made the last minute change, but I’ve confirmed that Zurer will start filming this week. Henry Cavill plays Superman, Russell Crowe plays Superman’s Kryptonian father Jor-El, and Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon also star. Zurer will next be seen starring in the Lawrence Kasdan-directed Darling Companion opposite Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline and Dianne Weist for Sony Pictures Classics. She’s repped by IFA Talent Agency. Man of Steel is produced by Chris Nolan, Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder and Emma Thomas.
I'm much more satisfied with this choice. I was fine with Julia, but she did come off older than I had wanted for Lara. Ayelet has a very soft and maternal look about her that is a nice contrast to the wise and stern Crowe.

I remember her in Munich. She's beautiful and talented, so she's good in my book.

Damn, that sucks. I've always had a huge crush on Ormond.

I prefer Ormond and think she looks more like HC, but I have to admit she was a little too old looking for the role of Lara.

Maybe Deborah found out about Zack and Julia's "Kryptonian getaway".

I liked her in Angels & Demons. I'm disappointed about Julia. I really liked her.

Yeah, me too. I thought Julia shared a good likeness with Cavill, as well. My only complaint was that she hasn't aged all that well.





Ayelet is fine though I guess.

I've heard a rumor that the studio didn't agree with Julia's politics. Say what?

Haha, that pic is a bit cruel. I think both were good choices.

Yeah, like I said, Julia hasn't aged well, but she was very beautiful in her prime.
Also, most images of Ayelet don't look like that one you posted above, which I suspect to be the result of photo alteration.

Here are more accurate representations of what Zurer looks like:

No clue. Found it on another forum. Sounds made up...

EDIT: Nevermind, I think I've found the "source". Another case of "let me take some posts from IMDb and disguise them as a rumor".

I wonder what was the real reason for the switch up. Unless Julia was never really cast, maybe it was always Aleyet??

She looks more like Lara to me, so I'm happy.

And posting unflattering pics of her is irrelevant to me. If she can brush up well for a photo shoot, then she can look hot ON SCREEN, regardless of her bad days off screen.

The pics I posted aren't meant to be unflattering -- just a more accurate representation of how Zurer looks. Someone posted a "brushed up" photo of her next to a public photo of Julia Ormond arguing that Zurer is easier on the eyes, which isn't necessarily the case -- at least in my opinion. That said, the brushed up photos of Zurer don't really look like her at all when you compare them to other pics of her on the interwebs. It's as if they gave her a photoshopped nose job or something.

She does make a good Lara though and is obviously younger looking; and I agree with the person who said she looks more like Brandon Routh.

I couldn't be happier with this casting choice! Now, give me Eric Bana as Jor-El instead of Crowe!

Here are more accurate representations of what Zurer looks like:



In these pictures, her nose looks rather prominent and reminds me a little of a proboscis monkey, especially the top one. I suppose she's better than Ormond though, who does seem rather too old.
