Julia Ormond cast to play his wife and Superman's mother, Lara.
Ormond is a lovely actress, I love her casting. She will be a great addition, and play well along side Crowe. I hope she has a bigger role than the character has had in the past. You may remember the British actress from such films as The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Legends of the Fall and more recently, Che: Part One.
Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Clark Kent's adoptive parents and Michael Shannon as the villain, General Zod. Not too shabby!
