UPDATE: Variety is now reporting that Traue will be playing the Kryptonian criminal Faora in Man of Steel. 

Superman might have some issues with the opposite sex.

According to Deadline, German actress Antje Traue may be close to signing on as the female villain in director Zack Snyder's (300, Watchmen) upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel. While the exact role has not been confirmed, it may be likely that Traue will be playing the Superman II villainess, Ursa, who worked alongside General Zod (now being played by Michael Shannon) to make Superman’s life miserable.

Traue co-starred in the 2009 sci-fi thriller Pandorum. Clearly, Man Of Steel, which is scheduled for a December 2012 release, would be a much better look.
