Will Superman kneel before a shapely Kryptonian villain?

Feb. 5, 2011by:

There's been a lot of talk about actresses vying to be the leading lady in Zack Snyder's SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL. The most recent round named Diane Kruger, Rosamund Pike and the delectable Alive Eve here as candidates, leading to speculation that perhaps Lois Lane wasn't even going to be in the movie.

But Latino Review says they've got it sorted: these ladies are actually up for an entirely different role than Clark Kent's love interest. Quite the opposite, in fact -- the production is looking for a female Kryptonian villain named URSA.

Snyder has stated on record that the movie would not feature General Zod as a villain, but apparently Supes will still have to face off against someone at his power level. Then again, Ursa (as previously portrayed in SUPERMAN 1 & II by Sarah Douglas) is a Zod accomplice, so you can ponder whether we'll see the megalomaniac himself at some point.

And not to worry -- Lois Lane will apparently still be involved with the Man of Steel. Judging by the actresses being sought for Ursa, the production just wants some blond contrast to Superman's dark-haired squeeze.

Extra Tidbit: Someone out there digs Ursa enough to write a love song about her.

This Ursa news is fail. I had high hopes for Snyder, figured he would be the man to finally bring Darkseid, Lobo or Doomsday to the big screen.

Good luck trying to top Terence Stamp and the ice-cold sexiness of Sarah Douglas.

No, not really. You're screwed before you even begin auditioning people for those roles.

I don't know what to think of this movie. I'm not the biggest fan of Supes.

But I am a big fan of that picture.

Let's face it. The only villain that would even have the slightest hope of defeating Superman is Jesus. I'm just sayin' I'd pay to see that movie. Like I said, I'm just sayin'.

I have to agree with Morix on this. Where famous superman Villains are concerned, we've only ever see 2 on screen, Luthor and Zod.

What about Metallo or Brainiac or Lobo? When are the Studios going to stop being cowards when it comes to using non mainstream villains for these films?

Seriously...

So many great unused villains in the Superman gallery and they're going to go with a lackey third-stringer who never even originated in the comics like Ursa? Much love for Pike, Kruger, and Eve but this idea just screams of fail.

On the plus side, the more I think about Olivia Wilde as Lois Lane, the more I feel this would be great casting. Make it happen Hollywood!

Rosamund Pike is the obvious choice of the 3.

Ursa without Zod makes no sense whatsoever. I would have been down for them bringing Zod back if for no other reason than for a chance to make up for some of the short comings of Superman II, but I'd much rather them give us something we haven't seen before.

So, there were boob jobs and plastic breasts on Krypton before it went boom???

A female Kryptonian villain = Mega Fail!

Hmm So even if this fails as a good movie we still will at least likely see a penthouse "this is not super man". Kind of makes you wonder who would make a good pornstar equivalent for lois lane or Ursa. hmmm

Or...

They could just be casting for Supermans Kryptonian mother, Lara. It is an origin story afterall so she most likely will be making an appearance, curious as to who will play Jor-El this time around.

Does URSA really work in terms of story without Zod? It's like doing Harley Quinn without the Joker. I'd be much more interested in seeing Metallo, Brainiac, or Darksied (say doomsday for a sequel) with Luthor as a minor character. We've already seen Superman battle Kryptonians in Superman 2.

All lovely ladies, yes.
But see, DC/Warner and all involved in this movie seem to be doing it again with Superman, which is? More of the same as all the previous Superman movies.
Try something different!! Superman has other villains than Kryptonians and Luthor.

Diane Kruger for Ursa. I can't take Alice Eve seriously enough for a role like this.

It would be great to see General Zod in this, but I guess Snyder is saving him for the sequels.

Michelle Monaghan for Lois Lane.
