Big time rumor for the upcoming Superman Man of Steel film. It looks like there might be a big female villain in the film after all, Faora. She’s a classic bad ass from the comics, a convicted man hating serial killer Kryptonian.
Will this be the villain role that Lindsay Lohan has been auditioning for? My guess is that we’ll know pretty soon.
Here’s the info on the Faora Rumor, along with a few other tasty bits from the guys over at Latinoreview.
” I got to speak with my reliable source about the project once again. For you readers who have doubts about the validity of this source’s info, this is the same individual that revealed to us Kevin Costner was cast as ‘Pa’ Kent, Lois Lane would appear in the film and Zod would be the villain, a major scoop that was finally proven valid with the news of Michael Shannon’s casting a few days ago.
– You will see JOR-EL and his wife, Lara.
– Daniel Day-Lewis was looked at for JOR-EL and not the villain.
– Krypton will not be a crystal planet like the Donner film; this Krypton will PROBABLY look like the Coruscant skyline from Star Wars. (See image below)
– The Kryptonian villainess is not URSA…Well sort of. The villainess is FAORA. I was also told that she is a bad ass in the script and that she is Zod’s “right hand [female dog].”
Here’s their breakdown on Faora in case you’ve never heard of her:
Faora Hu-Ul was a serial killer born on the planet Krypton. A self-professed “man-hater”, she targeted only male Kryptonians and ran a concentration camp where she kept other Kryptonians as slaves. Faora Hu-Ul claimed over twenty-three lives before she was arrested. Faora was sentenced to over three-hundred years of incarceration inside the Phantom Zone – the longest sentence ever handed to a female prisoner, and the second-longest sentence over all. As Faora was trapped inside the Phantom Zone, she, along with many others, survived the destruction of Krypton.
Faora was an expert at the Kryptonian martial art of Horo-Kanu, which utilized the pressure points on the Kryptonian body. This made her an extremely dangerous foe for Superman to face in hand-to-hand combat—he was forced to flee from their first encounter.
