Antje Traue Will Join Zod In The 'Man of Steel'

German actress Antje Traue has joined the cast of Zack Snyder Superman reboot 'Man of Steel,' Variety reports that she has been cast as the Kryptonian villainess Faora in the Superman reboot.

Faora, who first appeared in the comic books in the late 1970's, was the basis for the character of Ursa, played by Sarah Douglas in Superman and Superman II. A man-hating killer, Faora was banished to the Phantom Zone and, upon her escape, teamed with fellow Kryptonians General Zod and Jax-Ur to battle against Superman.

She will star along side Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Michael Shannon as General Zod, as well as Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent.
