Kryptonian Villainess Faora Shows Up on the Man of Steel Set

20 Comments

Faora Comic BookHere’s your first good (albeit a bit blurry) look at “Pandorum” actress Antje Traue as “Man of Steel’s” Kryptonian villainess Faora on the film’s set, all dressed up with no place to go. Well, that’s not exactly true.

POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW

I also believe that the man in the motion-capture suit walking alongside Traue is Michael Shannon, playing General Zod in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot. Or it could be a random extra. But probably Shannon. Maybe.

So is what we’re seeing here Faora and Zod teaming up to take on Superman (Henry Cavill) in the small town of Smallville? Of course, this explains all the wreckage from the set we’ve seen in the past. A battle of the superpowered aliens will just about ruin some good storefronts, don’t you know. It could also be what took Superman’s home for a little spin.

The Snyder directed film, due out June 14, 2013, will star Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Christopher Meloni, Julia Ormond, Antje Traue, and Harry Lennix.

    Wow! Cavill looks awesome in the suit! I’m not hating the new, red undieless look either. That is definately Shannon in the motion capture garb. Faora looks bad ass. I can’t wait to see some promotional material or a tearer for this!!!

    Holy crap Cavill looks jacked in the suit. And I guess that answers the briefs or no briefs question. Still looks great. And how come Faora isn’t in a motion capture suit.

      Prolly cause Zod is just so badass he has his own Kryptonian tailor. “KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!!!”

    Bigger question… what’s with the line of sight stick on top of Shannon’s head??? If it is Shannon that is…

    Are we looking at someone/thing bigger? Someone/thing not yet mentioned in this movie???

    Plus… I still miss the undies! There is something about Superman that makes his outfit never look rediculous! The guy could land in the middle of a fire-fight in down town Lybia and him wearing underwear on the outside wouldn’t look dumb! That said, if DC is looking to rebrand, I get it… and it’s actually a very very smart move to link the two together!

      Whoa I didn’t even notice the stick! I think that explains the motion capture; looks like Zod’s gonna be one big ass fucker. Unless, like everyone else is speculating, that’s not Shannon but a stuntman, in which case…..is there a third baddie….?

  • Epic_Myth

    Darkseid, clearly. :P

    • Juggernaut

      That would be a great swerve!!! Having everyone think it is Zod as the villain and it actually turning out being Darkseid!

    • http://www.originalgeekspodcast.com/ Dedpool

      Agreed! That’d be sick. Or Brainiac. Some even said it could be Non. Either way I’m looking forward to it

      • Juggernaut

        Could be a stuntman in the role of Non. Although it does look like Shannon to me. Too much speculation.

          I know right! Damn you blurry pics!

          Sent on the go!

    I want to get excited about this movie, but I just can’t. These pics aren’t exactly helping.

  • Thescowl

    Faora wears a cape and if Zod and Jor-El and all Kryptonians wear capes then a little mini story why Superman wears a cape could be done to bring more depth to the story. That would be cool. J/K

    I think the shot of Superman’s suit is too glossy, but Faora suits does look great.

    from what I remember as a kid there were 3 Kryptonians, perhaps that’s the 3rd one that was the big guy.
