[Variety is confirming Antje Traue has been cast as Faora in Superman: Man of Steel]
We already know Faora will supposedly appear at the right hand of General Zod (Michael Shannon) in Zack Snyder‘s Superman: Man of Steel, now we might know whose playing the kick-ass Kryptonian. Variety is reporting, via Superhero Hype, they’ve tapped German actress, Antje Traue for the role. A relative unknown, at least for big budget, super hero movies, Traue co-starred in the sci-fi move, Pandorum and will be in the upcoming, 5 Days of August. We’re still waiting on official confirmation but until then Traue seems like a fantastic choice for Zod’s right hand lady.
If you’d like a refresher on what a crazy bitch Faora is, here ya go. I think she’ll be a welcomed addition to Snyder’s Superman. We’ve already seen her on the big screen, sorta, as she was the inspiration for Ursa in Superman and Superman II. Of course, I think they neglected to include her killer hand-to-hand combat skills in those films so here’s hoping this Faora is a truer incarnation of the character.
We all want to see Superman flattened by a woman, we just need the right woman to do it. Is that Antje Traue? I don’t know, but I’d love to see her try.
