Deadline and Variety are reporting that actress Antje Traue (Pandorum) is either a leading candidate or has been signed (depends on who you believe) to play Faora, the Kryptonian foe of Superman. It's the basis of this character that Ursa was created for Superman: The Movie and Superman II.
Sigh. It's sounding more and more like a re-hash of what we've seen before. Now I'm starting to doubt the validity of the reports that Metallo and General Lane are the main villains. I'm sure someone will quickly point out that Joker, Two-Face, Bane and Catwoman have been used in the previous Batman franchise and I'll give you that. It's just that I understood that Zach Snyder wanted to stay away from the Christopher Reeve's version, but it doesn't seem that way. I guess we just need to keep an open mind.
