New “Superman” News…I am not a happy bunny…

Weeks ago, it was announced that the likes of Diane Kruger, Alice Eve and Rosamund Pike were competing for a female role in Christopher Nolan’s and Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel. We then learned that this role would not be Lois Lane. To this new, the worry started. A Superman movie without Lois Lane? That would just suck, end of.

Now the news has been released that the role is actually a villain, and that Lois Lane could very well appear. However, the role has been revealed to be that of Ursa, the Villain from Superman II. If you’ve seen Superman II you’d also know that Ursa is right hand woman to General Zod, the main villain of that movie. Which means the main villain in Superman: Man of Steel could also very well be General Zod (pictured right).

This seriously pisses me off. It means that we’ll get a villain that we’ve already seen in Christopher Reeve’s series of films.

We hardcore Superman fans have been ACHING for a proper Superman villain. Darkseid, Brainiac, Metallo, Doomsday…the possibilities are endless.

Get it fucking right Warner Bros seriously. Don’t they want to stop the endless complaints from hardcore DC fans? I myself did actually like Superman Returns, but the argument among people who didn’t like it is that they opted for Lex Luthor as a villain with his real estate plots, rather than a villain who can physically match Superman blow for blow. Putting a human villain in a Superman film means that Superman can’t fight, because if he did, the collateral would be insane. We’re talking about a superhero who can create antimatter from his bare hands.

Here’s hoping this isn’t true. A few months ago, there was a rumor that Matthew Goode had been cast as Superman. Now we know that this was false, since Henry Cavill has been cast. So there is hope that this could be false as well.
