More Potential SPOILERS on Superman: Man of Steel

15 Comments

Give the boys at Latino Review credit, they’ve been right on almost all of their “Superman” reboot scoops so far. Whoever their unnamed source is within the bowels of Warner Bros., it’s apparently a very well-placed one, not to mention accurate. So, with that in mind, here are some more tidbits on “Man of Steel” that LR has dug up.

As always, POTENTIAL SPOILERS BELOW.

* 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.
* The Kryptonian villainess is not URSA…Well sort of. The villainess is FAORA.

Faora? Who the hell is Faora? Well, apparently this is Faora, a “serial killer” Kryptonian who, from the looks of it, can’t wait to kick Superman’s ass:

    Faora showed up on Smallville too. I like the idea of using her, and the revamped Krypton too. I hope the crystals are still used for the technology though. Even if it isn’t I’m still excited about this film. Finally we’ll have a Superman that lives up to his iconic status.

      Let’s not get ahead of ourselves now! Lol. I’m sure that you were as amped as I was when I heard about ‘Returns’. LOL! Seemingly this will be the film that the fans want. Daniel Day Lewis is spot on for Cavill’s father. Throw the kid from the upcoming Peter Pan SyFy production and it all fits. Faora is a good addition. Hopefully Singer and Snyder keep Supes out of Metroplis for the bulk of the movie. Smallvillle too for that matter. Have him in a different environment with different villains until the end when he is thrust into the Daily Planet leaving the audience clammoring for more! I still say Olivia Wilde or Eva Green for Faora! Terry O’Quinn or Ed Harris for Lex!

        Lol true true. I like your Faora choices. Eva Green is doubtful because of “Camelot” and Wilde seems too young. How about Rhona Mitra? Also Terry O’quin would work. Ed Harris has been my choice for a long time but I think that ship has sailed. Matter of factly O’quin is too old as well, I don’t want a Lex that’s old enough to be Clark’s dad or grandad. LoL. There’s a rumor goin round bout a dude name Adam Harris that looks spot on. Also Ralph Fienes, and Paul Bettany have been brought up as well. Someone said Billy Zane, but no I don’t think he’d work too.
        Sent on the go.

          I’ll have to look at this Adam Harris character. As for Ralph Fiennes or Paul Bettany, I like both! Bettany more than Fiennes but I could see either in the role. I Think that Zane could be good. He just isn’t the same calibre of actor as the rest of the cast that they’re putting together, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Amy Admas and… Billy Zane?!?!?! It just doesn’t fit, y’know? Lol. Whoever it is should be the calibre of Gene Hackman in his prime or Kevin Spacey. While I didn’t think that either of them brought the ruthlessness or evil to the character that should have been they are both very good actors and brought a level of star power to the films.

            Agreed on the Billy Zane thing. I know he’s busy and all with “Justified” but I just rewatched “Hitman” and Timothy Olyphant would rock as Luthor.

          • Juggernaut

            I could see Olyphant. Good choice!

    I honestly have always had a hard time with the choices of lex luthor. Maybe less in Lois and Clark but everyone else didnt sell it to me. Especially Kevin Spacey, i love him as an actor, but he was no lex luthor.

    thanks for putting that issue up there. i’m going into METROPOLIS COLLECTIBLES/
    METROPOLIS COMICS.COM to find it and buy it. as for feora, i think that melody
    clark or that blond girl from the G.I. JOE movie who played baroness could play
    the part but eddie harris as lex? LOL….HAHHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

    @Juggernaut- I know right! I did the Homer “D’oh!” when i realized it cause he’d really fit well. He’s got that quiet intesity, but also that don’t f*ck with me look.

    faora it is nice that supes will have to battle 2 villains so far as the story unfolds..i like that in away but i would love to see her play a seductive caniving role befriend superman at first then feed him into gen zod’s hands as bait..is that a good plot story..anyone tell me what u think ..also i would like that faora who is supposedly a martial arts expert so so..or trained professional assasin etc.. THAT HER POWERS SHOULD BE LIMITED MAINLY TO THESE ABILITIES AND OF OF COURSE STRENGTH and perhaps reveals an unknowing achilles heel point on supe our man of steel that he didnt know existed ..well i might be going to far with that … but to see that both she and zod has same powers with superman doesn t cut it for me at least make her powers limited with some time of injection given her upon a sentence to the phantom zone so our yellow sun doesnt afford her all of supe s powers and perhaps enhancing GEN- ZOD’S powers a bit in one area that indicates he has an edge over supe but with superman earth knowledge and share strength or unknown limits comes out to defeat them both.. PLEASE PPL TELL ME WHAT U THINK OF these IDEAS..

      Really can’t be that big a deviation in their powers because they’re the same race and the yellow sun gives those powers. If anything you could say they aren’t as strong because they haven’t been under the sun as long as Kal-El, but they both make up for it with their military training.

      Sent on the go.

    Hugo Weaving for Lex.

  • superman420

    honestly mike rosenbaum is the greatest lex ever and would be great…but if u want someone older how about the lead guy on breaking bad? but i think wentworth miller the lead guy “scofield” from prison break could play a great devious lex!
