Ayelet Zurer Talks MAN OF STEEL
The beautiful Israeli born actress will play Superman's birth mother in Zack Snyder's reboot, and speaks to ShockYa about her experiences working on the film..
Ayelet Zurer stepped into the role of Kal-El's Kryptonian Mother Lara Lor-Von when Julia Ormond dropped out, and in an interview with ShockYa the statuesque actress speaks for the first time about her work on the movie. She doesn't go into any specifics plot or character wise, but praises Zack Snyder and co and - as other cast members have already noted - mentions an "edginess" to the film..
ShockYa: And what can you share about the upcoming “Man of Steel,” in which you play Superman’s birth mother?
AZ: I think it’s going to be an awesome movie, really. I loved Zack (Snyder). I think he’s a very cool and creative director, and I think the executive producers who developed the project are really on top of it because it’s a major movie and they’ve invested so much in it — not just money, but time. So I think the edginess of the direction that Zack took is something that’s really going to pay off. I have some scenes with Russell Crowe. And I love the costumes. I would steal one if I could. I don’t know if I’d have anywhere to go in it, but they’re nice, and overall it was such nice, nice work.
American audiences will know Zurer from her roles in the likes of Vantage Point, Angels And Demons and Munich. She will appear next in darling Company.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world's beacon of hope - Superman.
Man Of Steel is scheduled to hit theaters June 14th, 2013.
