RUMOR: Faora will battle the Man of Steel

The Superman reboot is getting as much, if not more, interest in the cast of characters and story than even Chris Nolan’s next Batman as news continues to sizzle surrounding what Zack Snyder actually has planned for our favorite Kryptonian. Today the word on the net is that Faora will be kicking some tail in the new movie and Krypton won’t be Crystal.

  • 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.
  • Don’t know who Faora is? Shame on you. Don’t worry, I already did the Wiki legwork:

    She was a beautiful Kryptonian woman whose unexplained hatred for men led her to torture and kill 23 men at a secret concentration camp in her home. For this, she was imprisoned in the Phantom Zone to complete a sentence of 300 Kryptonian years, the second longest term after Jax-Ur.[5][6] Ironically this allowed her to survive her homeworld’s destruction, along with the other Phantom Zone prisoners, albeit in an invisible ghostlike form.

    Daniel Day-Lewis could easily make an outstanding Jor-El and would shape up nicely compared to Superman’s earth parents. Also, this isn’t confirmed I’m gonna take a gamble in that we finally have some clarification as to what part that Diane Kruger and others auditioned for. I’m still on the fence about the idea of Superman battling other Kryptonians. The little boy in me still hopes that this will still somehow allude to Doomsday no matter how unrealistic but I guess I’d be cool with a Kryptonian hatchet-woman.

    1. Ahhh, so this is the role Lindsay auditioned for. I’m actually egging for her to get this part, especially now that we know the character. Lindsay could totally do a bitter, pissed villainess. Her raspy voice and looks. She’s a good actress, I could just see this working with her.

    2. If I didn’t absolutely love the people who are writing this and overseeing the writing then I would have cause for concern. With all of these outer space influences going around in this movie it give me hope for a proper Darkseid with michael ironside voicing it over.

      1. I’m on the Darkseid bandwagon too. But we’re not going to get anything that cool. We’re going to get the same bland fomula we always get with Superman. Luthor then Zod, so what if they use Kryptonians with different names, they still have the same powers. I have no interest in this reboot or reimagining of Donner’s and Richard Lester’s Superman 2. They could have gone in a totally different direction and tried something different but they didn’t. They gave the property to the overated flavor of the year Synder, and Superman will suffer because of this. Just let Donner do another movie, as he seems the only director able to give us a decent film about Supes.

      2. I am a casual comic fan and I was in junior high when doomsday “killed” Superman but I would do anything to see a darkseid! With what tech they have now it would be amazing. I mean if they can make a hobbit they can make a darkseid!

    3. Who knows at this point. coming off Sucker Punch I totally see Zach using a female who can kick some ass. It seems a little weird cause I’ve basically ingested all the films and only part 2 had a female villan who duked it out (albeit with Zod and the other guy). Not that I’m against it. I just hope they dont get Silly with it and have the space scenes look like the (seemingly appauling) Green Lantern with the cheesy looking effects. Mixed bag of emotions I guess. But I wanted Zach for this all along so, I’m in on this ride.
