The Latino Review leaked a little bit of “Superman” plot points a little early. These are just “rumors” so don’t believe it as of this moment. Faora will be the main villain for Superman. Planet Krypton will NOT be a crystal planet like you see in the beginning of “Superman: The Movie”. Warner Bros., Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder are all interested in Daniel Day-Lewis for the role of Jor-El (Superman’s biological father). You will see both Jor-El and Lara (Superman’s kryptonian Mom) in the beginning of the film. The story of “The Man of Steel” will be an origin story much like, “Batman: Begins”. The story will cover everything about the life of Superman from his birth on Krypton all the way to how he became Superman in Metropolis.

So General Zod may not be the film’s leading villain then, Faora will be the leading villain? Zod will only get a small role? For those who don’t know much about the Faora character, read more about her, here.
If you read Faora’s wikipedia, you can see that she was a very important part of Superman’s history, that Donner’s “Superman: The Movie”, never used. So it does make a lot of sense to use her and I’m glad they’re using a different villain this time. She was never used in any of the films.Well Faora was used for the TV show, “Smallville”, but not the movies.
While it must be frustrating and annoying to fans that they are using another “origin” story for Superman. They have to. Like I said Warner Bros./DC are at war with the Seigel heirs. They need to do the origin story fast because they’ll lose it all in 2013. Please try to understand that. Plus, how else are you going to start a Superman story when they are going to reboot it? Might as well start all over again.
Yes, I’m sure Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan’s version of “Superman” will probably start on planet Krypton, then they will go to Smallville where Clark Kent grew up to become Superman, and all the Metropolis stuff at the end of the film. I just think Christohper Nolan’s version of the Superman origin story will be much better. I trust both him and Zack.
Warner Bros. will probably make another casting announcement this Sunday because they seem to be announcing a new cast member every Sunday. Who will it be this Sunday? Will they announce who will be playing, Faora? I bet Faora is next, if possible. Maybe Lex Luthor will be next to be casted. Then they need to cast someone for Lana Lang (if they use her), Perry White, Jimmy Olsen and Superman’s real mother, Lara.
I support them in this project, 100%. I believe it will be a great movie. Hopefully they keep the John Williams score, though. That’s important, I hope they don’t ignore that legendary opening theme song.
