Faora, not Ursa. GOOD.

So much for news only on Sundays.

Has anyone seen her in anything?

She was in Pandorum with Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster. From what I remember she's not a bad actress and she can do the action...don't really recommend the movie though.

Interesting. First time in a long while I have absolutely NO idea who an actress is. She looks the part at least.

I'm torn if I should count this against Snyder's flawless hit record. Maybe I should give this one a pass.

i'm giving it a pass, simply because he can't get big name actors and actresses for EVERY speaking role. i'm not expecting him to cast Jimmy as a big name.


edit: so....how the hell do you pronounce her name? hehe, i'm thinking "AHN-che_Chrow"??

edit again: here's a video with 2 pronounciations...

Yeah, why should Faora be a name actress since there didn't seem much of a choice from the "name" actors.

This is not an official statement from WB....let's wait for the press release.

It seems she has been cast but everything else (it being Faora and all may be the article writer's conjecture.)

See deadline.com for their less fantastic take on the story http://www.deadline.com/2011/04/warn...el-villainess/

If it is Faora, I'll take latinoreview off my **** list, but it still hasn't been confirmed, hopefully, we'll get official news shortly.

Oh, I wasn't expecting big names, per se. Cavill and Shannon would certainly be labeled more as up-and-comers still. It's that I was so used to being thrilled with every announcement, this one caught me off guard because I'm completely unfamiliar with her.

I'm intrigued by the choice, however. Henry's casting I can understand, because you practically need a new face for that role. I figured Zack would continue casting established actors around him. Antje is the rookie here, without a single prominent role or a very large resume. Curious as to how she nabbed it considering she's only had one English-speaking role.

No biggie, though. This has piqued my interest more than it has raised my concerns. Plus I really like her look. She's got a very sexy vibe about her. Not in a typical model-like way, more of she can probably rough me up and I'd probably enjoy it type of thing.







She's got that heartless and commanding demeanor down pat. Has a nice build to look like a convincing fighter as well as maintaining her femininity. Looks-wise I couldn't be more pleased with her.

She has a great look and as i said elsewhere glad they didn't only look at "name" actors.

Here is the article since it asks for registration:

German actress Antje Traue cast as Superman villainess
Thesp to play Faora in Warner Bros.' 'Man of Steel'
By JEFF SNEIDER
Posted: Wed., Apr. 27, 2011, 11:33am PT

German actress Antje Traue has been cast as Superman villainess Faora in Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures' "Man of Steel."

Henry Cavill stars as the titular superhero, while other confirmed cast members include Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Michael Shannon as General Zod, as well as Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent.

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.

In pop culture, the female Kryptonian named Ursa in "Superman" and "Superman II" is believed to be based on Faora, who appeared on the eighth season of "Smallville" as the wife of General Zod.

Zack Snyder is directing "Man of Steel" from a screenplay by David S. Goyer, based on a story by Nolan and Goyer. Christopher Nolan is producing alongside Charles Roven, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder, while Legendary topper Thomas Tull is exec producing with Lloyd Phillips.

Production is scheduled to start this summer in Chicago, with a release planned for December 2012.

Traue was last seen playing the female lead alongside Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster in Overture Films' "Pandorum." Thesp recently wrapped Renny Harlin's war drama "5 Days of August," which stars Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia and Heather Graham.

Traue is repped stateside by Greene & Associates Talent Agency, and by Troika and Spielkind overseas.

Synder generally likes to cast relatively unknown actors and actresses in his movies.

It sounds like this is turning into a modern version of Superman II, I was hoping that Snyder was going to go with a more interesting choice of villains.

*sigh*

I guess, I don't really find him that interesting plus he's already been used (people haven't forgotten Supes II).

But we're not guaranteed the same Zod from Supes II, that's why I really look forward to Shannon's portrayal of the character.

True, it's just that I didn't want Supes to go against an enemy that didn't share his every power.
