Superman’s Other Female Character Revealed!

general zod Supermans Other Female Character Revealed!

Director Zack Snyder found his Superman in 27 year-old growing star Henry Cavill and now the supporting cast of Superman: Man of Steel is getting closer to filling out. Earlier in the week, Olivia Wilde and Rachel McAdams were reported to be top candidates for the presumably leading female role of Lois Lane and not long after that, another shortlist of actresses were revealed to be contending for another key female role.

Who could the reported shortlist of Diane Kruger, Rosamund Pike and Alice Eve be competing to play in Warner Bros. attempt at modernizing their Man of Steel? We only knew that it wouldn’t be Lois Lane, but now we know who it is.

Latino Review have the scoop from an insider who reveals that the mysterious female character Kruger, Pike and Eve are vying for is none other than Kryptonian villainess, Ursa, and that Lois Lane will definitely still be in the film.

Remember those rumors of General Zod being a (or the) villain of Superman: Man of Steel? Snyder denied those, but if Ursa is in a fact, a character of the film, then Zod probably is as well.

In the original 1978 Christopher Reeve Superman, Ursa (played by Sarah Douglas, pictured top-left) appeared alongside Zod as they, along with fellow Kryptonian criminal Non, were sentenced to the infamous Phantom Zone. They of course, became the primary villains for the sequel.

Here’s a little video of them taking over the White House:

Both Pike and Eve have made plenty of superhero movie headlines in recent times, with both almost having a role in X-Men: First Class and Eve seemingly almost having the part of Sue Storm in the now-delayed Fantastic Four reboot. Kruger on the other hand, made a statement with her strong performance in Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. None of the three really look like Douglas/Ursa too much at first glance, especially with them all having long blonde hair and the character traditionally having short dark hair, but of the three I believe Rosamund Pike has the facial expression down and could play a seriously angry Kryptonian.

We all kneel before Zod when Superman: Man of Steel hits theaters in December 2012.

  1. All we want is no more Lex Luthor. We are sick and tired of seeing Lex Luthor in each Superman movie. Its like having Joker in every batman movie. So

    - Don’t bring in Lex Luthor.
    - Give it a modern day look and feel
    - Bring some fresh ideas and villains
    - Some amazing action and jaw dropping twists

    • sorry jay, i’m betting that since hollywod has no original ideas we’ll see zod, non, ursa, luthor, lenny luthor, and hopefully…nuclear man. just no gus gorman.

  2. All the Superman movies are garbage including first one. A Lex Luthor living under train station and wants land. I can’t believe people like that crappy movie.

    I had faith in the movie since Nolan was close to project. We don’t need no Ursa or Zod in new movie. Put in Brainaic and Luthor as Secondary villian.

    We need movies based on Comic counterparts. Why can’t people come up with new ideas. I can understand why Joker, Two Face and Catwoman are in newer Batman movies because they are main characters and were done horribly in originals. But the Superman movies never had a good villian at all. They couldn’t even get Lex Luthor right.

    Its better if they don’t make any more Superman movies if they going to add Ursa, Zod and let alone Lindsey Lohan as a actor in movie.

      Despite what some things were or characters were like in the originals, the first two Superman films were great till this day. But everyone has their own opinion.

  3. man i was really hoping to see supes fight darkseid

  4. The one I would like to see would be Brainiac, and maybe Lex in a secondary role. Look at the animated film Brainiac Attacks. It had the exact same layout that some of my fellow fans and I would like to see. But if, and IF Brainiac were to be put onto the big screen, who would play this technological menace? Any ideas?

    • @ comicsfan

      If you’re refering to Snyder’s reboot, One person that comes to mind is maybe Billy Zane? I could see him as Brainiac or Lex Luthor. And depends if they plan to any cgi on Brainiac & how much if at all. The character been through changes over the years. As long as he doesnt take up a human lookin appearance as seen on Smallville within the film despite i liked that guy who played him on the show.
