Man of Steel' Female Villain revealed revealed & New Looking Krypton!?
RUMOR: 'Man of Steel' Female Villain Revealed & More!!
Kelvin Chavez at LatinoReview have been contacted by a reliable source who has given them more information on 'Man of Steel'. They claim that this source is the same one who revealed that Kevin Costner would play Johnathan Kent, that Lois Lane would be in the film, and that Zod would be the villain.
The source has now revealed that we will indeed be seeing another Kryptonian villain, a female Kryptonian to be more specific.
Here's the report:
" 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]."
Now some of you may, or may not know that in the old Superman movies, the female Kryptonian villain Ursa was based off Faora from the comics.
Here's a bit of background on Faora for you guys:
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.
According to the report we can expect Krypton to look something like this:
'Man of Steel' stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, and Michael Shannon as General Zod.
