German actress Antje Traue, who starred in “Pandorum” has been cast as the villainess Faora in Zack Snyder’s reboot of Superman. The film “Man of Steel” will be arrive in theaters in 2012, so today’s news will excite fans.

Superman (Henry Cavill) will face General Zod (Michael Shannon) and now a second character unfamiliar to most audience members. The female character Ursa from “Superman” and “Superman 2” were based on Faora, a female Kryptonian who despises all men.

The most recent version of Faora in the comics has her able to create a mutagenic virus and shoe joins General Zod to execute his evil plans of destruction. Variety directly quotes Wikipedia’s reference: “That character was an orphan metahuman with the ability to disrupt molecular bonds, which allowed her to create a mutagenic virus that served as the linchpin of Zod’s plan.”

More details are sure to unravel as the production will begin later this year.
