"Superman" to Battle General Zod and Faora (Faora Hu-Ul)
worst preview ^ | 04.14.11

Posted on 04/14/2011 8:00:49 PM PDT by Perdogg

We already know that Michael Shannon will play General Zod in the upcoming "Superman" reboot. But it won't be Kryptonian villainess Ursa by Zod's side, it will be Faora. This comes from LatinoReview's very reliable source, which first revealed that Zod will be in the movie and so will Diane Lane and Kevin Costner.

I was unaware that Zod played any significant role in 73 years of Superman comic books. Why use him for the reboot?

OH, it’s a reMAKE of some movie from the 1970s.

Nothing beats the original Superman movies from the late 70s with Christopher Reeve. I even enjoyed Superman III with Richard Pryor. That junkyard scene with Clark Kent fighting his alter ego is epic.

Those movies had a distinct feel to them and Reeve played the character right down to a T. My only beef is that Telly Savales would have made a much better Lex Luthor than Gene Hackman.

Zod was big in the comics. Robert Bernstein created him way back in the Silver Age. Of course, he’s most famous as Aquaman’s creator, so take it for what it’s worth. Still he’s figured heavily in Superman mythos, and wasn’t a minor character invented or reinvented for Superman II.

Superman should fight Mr. Mxyzptlk.
Today’s movie technology could handle the special effects.

"Faora Hu-Ul was a serial killer born on the planet Krypton. A self-professed "man-hater," she targeted only male Kryptonians and ran a concentration camp where she kept other Kryptonians as slaves."

Since Red Kryptonite turns Clark evil, shouldn't that mean it would turn all these evil baddies good?

Superman could just don a lead suit, and 'throw rocks' at them!

Terrence Stamp was great as Zod. Wasn’t there a freeper with the handle “KneelbeforeZod?
