German actress Antje Traue has landed the role of villainess Faora in director Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel. She joins a cast that includes Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod,  Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent.

According to a mouth-breathing virgin at Variety:

[Traue will play] the version of Faora that debuted in Action Comics #779 as a Pokolistanian aide of General Zod. That character was an orphan metahuman with the ability to disrupt molecular bonds, which allowed her to create a mutagenic virus that served as the linchpin of Zod’s plan.

Genre fans may recognize Traue from her role as genetic engineer Nadia in 2009’s criminally underrated sci-fi survival frightener Pandorum. The film marked the 30-year-old looker’s American feature debut.
