Antje Traue is Faora in 'Man of Steel'
Variety reports that German actress Antje Traue (PANDORUM) will play the Kryptonian villainess Faora in Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL,
Faora has had several incarnations, from male-hating killer to ruthless scientist and (on SMALLVILLE) the wife of General Zod, who will be played by BOARDWALK EMPIRE’s Michael Shannon.
The serial man-killing version of Faora was used as a basis of SUPERMAN & SUPERMAN II’s Ursa, played Sarah Douglas.
In the comics, the first Faora’s knowlege of a deadly form of Kryptonian martial arts based on pressure points and the nervous system made her a formidable fighter.
