Kneel Before Ursa: New Superman Movie To Feature The Female Baddie
Wonder no more, my little chickadees, about what that strange short list of women who weren't going to play Lois Lane in the new Superman reboot meant. Word on the street is, they're all in the running to play Ursa, the Kryptonian villainess from Superman II.
Just to refresh your memory, Ursa was the right-hand woman to the evil General Zod; imprisoned in the Phantom Zone with him, the two, along with ogreish Non, escape to wreak havoc on the world. Ursa's turn-ons include the suffering of all men everywhere, badges taken as battle trophies, and reruns of The Bachelorette.
Oddly enough, Zack Snyder has sworn on a stack of Action Comics that Zod would not be in his reboot, which makes the presence of Ursa slightly surprising. Ursa and Zod go together like violent peas and sadistic carrots, so having one without the other is a bit unusal. Was Snyder fibbing? Is Ursa going solo? Or perhaps, like the first Superman, is this just a cameo in preparation for a larger role in the sequel?
Whatever the case, out of the three rumored actresses vying for the role -- Diane Kruger, Rosamund Pike and Alice Eve -- I'm pulling for Diane Kruger. She's got just the right blend of fair-eyed beauty and steel-jawed Germanic bitch to make it work.
