Julia Ormond Offered “Man of Steel”

Julia Ormond (“Legends of the Fall,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”) has been offered the role of Lara, Kal-El’s birth mother, in the upcoming Superman reboot “Man of Steel” at Warner Bros. Pictures reports Deadline.

Ormond would likely appear opposite Russell Crowe who was recently offered the part of Superman’s Kryptonian father Jor-El in the Zack Snyder-directed feature.

Snyder is said to have been considering several actresses, which explains talk last week that “Gladiator” actress Connie Nielsen was up for the role of Lara.
