Antje TraueZack Snyder's "Superman" reboot may have yet another Kryptonian villain, as German actress Antje Traue is the latest name to be tossed into the "Man Of Steel" ring.

Variety reports (via Superhero Hype) that she'll be tackling the role of Faora in Snyder's "Man of Steel." However, there are several incarnations of Faora in the Superman comics, so it's not quite clear which will be appearing this time around.

The character of Faora has previously appeared in comics and television form as everything from General Zod's wife to a man-killing alien and crazy hand-to-hand brawler. She was also the inspiration for Sarah Douglas' Kryptonian villainess Ursa in "Superman" and "Superman II." In the end, she's bad news for Clark Kent's alter ego any way you slice it. Read More...

Captain AmericaSome of the most interesting parts of "Captain America" that we've seen so far show Chris Evans as a puny dude who is at first rejected from the Army for being too skinny. Unlike some actors who go on dangerous crash diets to achieve that freaky look, Evans was digitally manipulated -- which is especially helpful since he has to get all muscle-bound and ready to kick butt later in the movie.

However, before he became the superstar of comic book flicks, he admits he looked more like Steve Rogers than the all-American Captain.

"[I]t it wasn’t that foreign to me because that’s what I looked like for a big chunk of my life," he told USA Today. "This is what I looked like for all of all middle school. Up until maybe sophomore year, I was a pretty skinny kid for a long time." Read More...
