Antje Traue to battle 'Man of Steel'

April 28, 2011

Variety can confirm that Antje Traue will be cast opposite Henry Cavill in Man of Steel.

She will play either one of two characters named Faora, both of whom battled Superman in the comics. Rumor has it that she will take on the Faora who served as handmaiden of General Zod, set to be played by Michael Shannon.

Antje Traue's casting ends months of speculation as to who will play Superman villainess, which dropped such names as Diane Kruger and Lindsay Lohan. Traue last acted alongside Ben Harper and Dennis Quaid in Pandorum.

Cavill will be the title protagonist, Zack Snyder and David Goyer the director and writer, respectively. Man of Steel will also star Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, and Amy Adams.

Christopher Nolan of Inception fame will be producing the film with five others starting this summer, with a target release of December 2012.
