New ‘Man of Steel’ Photos Reveal Antje Traue in Faora Armor

Faora in Man of Steel Armor New Man of Steel Photos Reveal Antje Traue in Faora Armor

The slow march toward Man of Steel‘s major marketing push continues – today with some new images from the film featuring a character we’ve seen very little of up to this point: Faora, a Kryptonian character played by German actress Antje Traue (Pandorum). Faora is actually a variation on the character of Ursa (Sarah Douglas) – a.k.a. General Zod’s lieutenant in the 1980 film, Superman II. The character has also had several variations in the comics, leaving some question as to how director Zack Snyder plans to use her in MoS.

In addition to today’s pictures  featuring Traue in full Kryptonian armor, there’s one snapshot that’s especially curious, featuring (what we assumed would once again be) Zod’s lieutenant seemingly getting cozy with Superman (Henry Cavill) and Lois Lane (Amy Adams).

Check out the photos of Faora, courtesy of EW

Is that a Kryptonian mind-meld we’re seeing in action? And what could cause Lois, Superman, and one of Zod’s minions to have such intimate contact?

If I had to guess, one situation to call for such a moment would be Kal-El’s attempt to show his fellow Kryptonians the example of a human worth caring for – as Supes cares for Lois. We’ve heard rumors about just how deep the Superman/Lois connection could run in this film – and the first trailer definitely ended with some iconic imagery of our favorite superhero alien bonding with our favorite feisty girl reporter  - so… maybe.  Otherwise, your guess is as good as mine as to how this all fits into the über-secretive script that Dark Knight architects Chris Nolan, Jon Nolan and David S. Goyer put together.

Traue no doubt wears the armor better than Michael Shannon’s Zod (featured above); but even when covered in goop and grime during most of Pandorum she still looked gorgeous, so this is just par for the course.

With Iron Man 3 about to explode into theaters, expect the weeks after to feature more and more (and more) Man of Steel marketing materials – including a new trailer that hopefully shows us what Faora, Zod and Superman himself all look like in action.

  1. And I had thought that I couldn’t get more excited for this… silly me.

  2. Is it just me or do the Kryptonian armors in Man of Steel have a distinct Lord of the Rings/Sauron kind of vibe?

    • Lol, the armor plating around Faora’s fingers certainly bear some resemblance to Sauron’s chopped fingers

    • Now that you mention it, the costume is very Sauranish. :)

    • I was thinking Necromongers but yeah, Sauron is closer.

    • I’m getting a Dark Souls Black Knight vibe from that outfit… which is a very good thing.

  3. Faora looks so badass in that armor of hers. I really hope the story doesn’t end with a lame death scene for her or Zod. Something more dignified for the villains will be a breathe of fresh air

  4. She looks a lot like Robocop’s partner from the first film back in the 80s.

  5. I wonder what is covering her head in the first image?

    • Looks like it could be a space helmet force field, to hold in her air, or a battle force field to protect her.

  6. Antje Traue looks more like Loïs Lane than Amy Adams…

    • I have to agree. I have never been happy about the idea of Amy Adams as Lois. Don’t get me wrong, I love Adams, but Traue would looks the part more.

  7. She looks HOT

  8. I would take Erica Durance as Lois Lane over Amy Adams.

    • I would back you. AA is like blat in my mouth. ;)

    • I don’t know why but I like Amy Adams as Lois better than anyone else. I haven’t seen MOS yet (just like everyone else) but from what I see she hasn’t given me a reason to not like her yet.

    • @ WallyWest

      I agree with you, Erica over Amy for Lois Lane, definitely.

  9. Not sure if anyone caught this but when the final episode of Spartacus aired last night, this Man Of Steel commercial aired:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YU6L_4q2mcM

    Just figured I’d share since it’s new and hasn’t been mentioned on the site yet.

    • Sorry I replied to another comment, but it was meant for you :)

      Seems like you haven’t been fallowing the viral marketing around this movie.

      The official website http://www.manofsteel.com has launched a lot of static last weekend which was changing every 5 hours i believe, with an image getting more clear everytime. It was general zod emblem. When the image was clear you could see that video. Also that video contained a hidden image which once translated led you to another website http://www.iwillfindhim.com where another countdown is going on. Still going right now. Will end in 5 hours approximately.

      Now the question is, what happens when the countdown runs out?

      • correction:
        countdown will end in 3 hours approximately.

        • good lord are you sure? I had sites saying at 5:15 est but it doesnt seem that way.

          • Pretty sure.

            • ill trust you lol

          • Timer has about an 1-2 hours left.

      • @Tyron

        Honestly, I haven’t followed ANY Man Of Steel stuff that hasn’t been on Screen Rant’s Man Of Steel reports and only caught this while skipping through the commercials while watching Spartacus on tuesday morning.

    • Very cool…Shannon plays up the authoritative side of Zod quite effectively in this clip.

      My anticipation for MOS just shot up even higher…

  10. Oi, how come the FINAL Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer isn’t on SR? It’s been a big fuss right now!
    And this pic about Faora is on for sometime on EW. Why now?

    • Seems like you haven’t been fallowing the ciral marketing around this movie.

  11. Wish supes’ suit had a few lines of separation instead of being a onesie, kinda looks like hes wearing pajamas next to the armor.

    • @ Cody

      Superman wearing pajamas is what i thought too after seeing on-set photos of Cavill in costume. Not much color to break up the blue imo. I guess one photo i saw was a fake that shown two red lines w/ a yellow line almost reaching the yellow buckle circle. Guess not though. Imo, the costume looks great except it’s too dark minus the cape.

  12. looks like Lois is beeing fitted with her own helmet

  13. she’s hawt

  14. Kryptonian timer counting down…

  15. Even more excited now. I can’t wait till June! So far the Spring/Summer movies have not failed to impress me. With Evil Dead kicking it off , Ironman next then Supes! Am I forgetting anything?

    -scratches head deep in thought- As far as Blockbusters go I think that’s it.

    I still need to see , A place beyond the pines it isn’t playing at my theater so I may wait till Video. But yeah as far as epic stuff is concerned I think that’s it.

    After earth , Oblivion , and Pacific Rim just don’t do that much for me. Maybe Elysium will pay off but I don’t know.

  16. Err, I don’t think you can call Faora a variation of Ursa when it’s more the other way around. There was no Ursa character until Superman II, Faora predated the character. Plus I think most people will be less familiar with Superman II anyway, so I’m not sure the reference is entirely necessary.

    • It’s true Faora’s been around since way before Ursula, but I don’t buy for a second that “most” people wouldn’t be familiar with Superman II. Everyone who was alive when it was out remembers it, and many people who were born after it was in theaters have seen it since then.

      • *ursa not ursula*
        I always get that name switched in my head.

        • I mean, I was born way after Superman II and I certainly know of it and have seen it, but it’s not like it’s a particularly prominent presence in my head. If it weren’t for me following news on this and other Superman stuff I probably wouldn’t remember anything else about it other than Zod being the villain.

  17. Can’t wait. It all looks good

  18. I keep going back and forth wondering if Zod and Faora will actually have superpowers at all… If so will they be as strong as Superman?

    • To me it looks like they could be stronger, or at least as strong. Snyder is building this idea that Supes is outmatched because of all the tech and sheer numbers, I think it’s more exciting for the conflict. Zod & Faora have some serious powered armor.

  19. Helllooooooo Nurse

  20. There are not enough girls in armour!!! :D

  21. It’s going to be a good one !
