Julia Ormond to play Supermans mother in Man Of Steel

Deadline is reporting that Julia Ormond is in talks to play Superman’s Kryptonian mother, Lara Lor-Van, in Zack Snyder's reboot Man Of Steel .

Ormond recently won an Emmy for TV movie Temple Grandin , and she has wrapped shooting on My Week With Marilyn .

Last week, Russell Crowe was linked to the role of Superman’s Kryptonian father, Jor-El.

Ormond and Crowe are set to join quite the assorted line-up, with Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Superman’s earthly foster parents, and Amy Adams as intrepid Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane.

And let's not forget British actor Henry Cavill, who's playing the man himself Superman/Clark Kent.

Man Of Steel is set for a December 2012 release.
