General Zod has a female companion for Superman in actress Antje Traue

04.27.2011

Remember the talk of a female villain for SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL?

Well, Variety is reporting that the role has been filled by Antje Traue (PANDORUM). She will be playing Faora-- not Ursa has previously speculated.

There's more than one version of Faora in the Supes universe. Despite the different versions, the character stayed close to the man-hating companion to General Zod. It's said and rather obvious, that the character of Ursa in SUPERMAN & SUPERMAN II is based off Faora.

Variety guessed that Traue would play the original version of Faora, "There are multiple Faoras in the Superman universe, so it remains unclear which one Traue has been tapped to play. The first Faora, Faora Hu-Ul, was introduced in Action Comics #471 as a beautiful Kryptonian woman with an intense unexplained hatred for all men. She was an expert at the Kryptonian martial art of Horo-Kanu, which utilizes pressure points on the Kryptonian body and made her a dangerous foe for Superman to fight in hand-to-hand combat. In fact, he was forced to flee from their first encounter. That said, it's more likely that Traue will be playing the version of Faora that debuted in Action Comics #779 as a Pokolistanian aide of General Zod. That character was an orphan metahuman with the ability to disrupt molecular bonds, which allowed her to create a mutagenic virus that served as the linchpin of Zod's plan."
