I’m not positive if that headline is true by the way. It’s not like I’m under oath or anything. But that’s Michael Shannon on set in Toronto today as the villain in the new Superman movie. I haven’t seen any other ones, and they don’t have any on ‘Man of Steels’ facebook fan page, and they’ve done a real good job with stuff like this. Like those pictures of Henry Cavill as Clark Kent. So if that headline is a lie, blame them. I would be the real victim, if anyone should be mad here it would be me!

The Superman reboot ‘Man of Steel’ filmed some more scenes yesterday with Plano, Illinois, filling in for Smallville, and, um, here are some pictures of Henry Cavill in the new, very very tight Superman costume. It’s as if they skipped ahead and just made the porn parody first. So on top of all the action, this looks like it should be a good date movie too, especially if you and your date are both men.

A facebook fan page, specifically this one, has some new pictures from the set of ‘Man of Steel’ showing Henry Cavill in his Superman uniform, and comic nerds everywhere are atwitter because his outfit now seems to be almost all dark blue and does not have the traditional red underwear thing.
It’s also the first look at Antje Traue as Faora, who is also from Krypton but evil (Faora, not Antje). It also shows some guy in a motion capture outfit, though it’s not clear what character he plays. I hope it’s King Kong. That would be a good movie!

The reboot of the Superman reboot ‘Man of Steel’ hasn’t actually begun filming yet, but Warner Bros has released the very first look at Henry Cavill as Superman anyway (giant full size copy here). And he looks good. He’s a good choice. Granted Brandon Routh was really good too, so this part is no indication of quality. And I’m so happy that they’re telling the origin story, because how come he can fly and stuff? Where is he from? Where do his powers come from? They never really explained that part in the comic or TV show or the first four movies. Finally we’re gonna get some answers.

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER – has agreed to reprise his most famous role in Terminator 5, to be directed by Justin Lin, whose first task will be to explain why a robot has a turkey neck and occasionally noticeable bra strap. (thr)
ANTJE TRAUE – will play the second villain in the Superman reboot. The relatively unknown German actress (pictured above) will play Faora Hu-Ul, another refugee from Krypton and an expert in the Kryptonian martial art of Horo-Kanu, who will likely be similar to Ursa, who helped General Zod in Superman II. This post has already kicked the shit out of my spell-check, if that helps any. (variety)
IMMORTALS AND X-MEN – both got very cool new trailers today, and Transformers 3 gets a new one tomorrow, which combined should give us about 10 minutes of tight shots on actors grunting at things that were added later with a computer. (immortals, xmen)

I think most people were so glad when Michael Shannon was cast as General Zod in the Superman reboot, if only because it meant we wouldn’t have to see another dumbass Lex Luther movie if nothing else, that they pretty much stopped paying attention to the casting after that. But now Latino Review says there will be a second villain as well; a girl.
A girl serial killer.
A girl serial killer who hates men and with a history of kicking Supermans ass because she’s from Krypton too and has all the same powers.
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. Faora Hu-Ul claimed over twenty-three lives before she was arrested. Faora was sentenced to over three-hundred years of incarceration inside the Phantom Zone – the longest sentence ever handed to a female prisoner, and the second-longest sentence over all. As Faora was trapped inside the Phantom Zone, she, along with many others, survived the destruction of Krypton.
Faora was an expert at the Kryptonian martial art of Horo-Kanu, which utilized the pressure points on the Kryptonian body. This made her an extremely dangerous foe for Superman to face in hand-to-hand combat—he was forced to flee from their first encounter.
The role hasn’t been cast yet and they don’t even mention any candidates, but could this be the part Lindsay claims she was reading for? Sure, it could be, since she was lying to begin with. When you lie you can say and do anything you want. Watch this: “I also read for a part in the Superman movie. And right now I’m on the moon, with a panther.” See what I mean. It’s easy.
