Rumor: Mystery Female Role in 'Superman: Man of Steel' Revealed?
Last week we heard about three actresses who were top contenders for a lead female role in Zack Snyder's take on Superman: Man of Steel. Though Alice Eve, Rosamund Pike and Diane Kruger seem like great love interests for Clark Kent/Superman, apparently their role in question was not that of intrepid reporter Lois Lane. Actually, at the time the news hit, that female role had not been specified. Well, Latino Review may have solved the mystery and learned that the female role one of the three actresses may take is that of Ursa, a villainous vixen of Krypton and accomplice of Superman's arch enemy General Zod. More below!
This wouldn't be the first time Ursa has appeared on screen to wage war on Supes. Actress Sarah Douglas played the character alongside Terrence Stamp as Gen. Zod, plus Jack O'Halloran as Non, as the 3 villains who were imprisoned in The Phantom Zone in Superman: The Movie. Then in the sequel, the 3 intergalactic criminals escaped and causing chaos on Earth. This news, assuming it's true, will certainly mean General Zod is coming back into the villain equation, even though director Zack Snyder half-heartedly disregarded his involvement in the story by saying, "For now, it's just a rumor." It's certainly a very interesting idea!
And for those worried that a Superman film just wouldn't feel right without Lois Lane holding onto the Man of Steel's cape, Latino Review is also claiming that her character will definitely be in the movie ("Lois Lane WILL be in the film"). Since the superhero movie is gearing up to start production in summer, expect many more details to slowly come out of the woodwork. Until then, stay tuned for additional updates. Thoughts?
