Possible Description Of Superman/Faora Fight Scene From MAN OF STEEL

A user from the SHH forums claims to have some details on one of the super-powered smackdowns from Zack Snyder's reboot. If it's on the level, Supes doesn't do too well against female Kryptonian Faora.

The following comes from a - supposedly reliably informed - user at the SHH forums, who claims to have a source that was on hand for scenes being filmed in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel. It does gel with those set images we saw from the Plano Illinois shoot, at least in that we know Supes (Henry Cavill) and Faora (Antje Traue) do have some kind of face-off. Thing is, if this is accurate Faora will give Superman a VERY sound beating when they do..



"In line with what I've heard, Superman barely scrapes by in the movie against Zod and Faora and other supposed less powerful enemies, the person who literally beats the bloody hell out of him the most is not Zod (he actually apparently fares much better against the General) is Faora. You know the ass kicking Spider-Man receives from Green Goblin in spider-man 1 what with Tobey screaming in major pain with each punch and knee that Goblin gives him... multiply that by 3 and that's what Faora does to Superman. Or of Omni-Man's beat down of Invincible.

At first they're not as powerful but later on as she applies her fight training and adapts them to her powers, she gives Superman one of the worst beatings a hero has faced on camera... She "Doomsdays" him... literally pulverizing him with precision and lethal strength with hitting pressure-points, nerves and even just outclasses Supes in bare knuckle and gives Supes a severe beat down...he's total agony this entire time, bloody and broken and barely gets away. My buddy doesn't know at all how Superman defeats these guys eventually but he did say that Superman in this film gets hurt a lot more easily than Routh's pre-crisis Superman...the military can hurt him too but Faora pretty much nearly kills him in hand to hand."


Okay, I don't have a problem believing that something like that happens in the movie - the hero always needs something to come back from after all. The thing is, I have my doubts that such a beat down would be delivered by a secondary villain like Faora and not General Zod (Michael Shannon). I guess we'll find out, but for now sound off with your thoughts below.

Cant wait! Seems like they're going with new 52 power set. Same power levels just not as invulnerable.
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 9/14/2012, 4:45 AM
That's if this is to be trusted because it could be total BS lol
TheDARKestKNIGHT - 9/14/2012, 4:50 AM
Watch some of you have a hissy fit about Faora handing Supes his ass but that's only logically correct. She's got militant combat training versus Supes who's just throwing punches. She's precise and direct with the abilities of a krpytonian. Sorry Supes, I know you'll come back somehow though.
AlternateNo4 - 9/14/2012, 4:52 AM
faora is a trained technical fighter and a veteran... in addition to being a murderous psychotic. clark's training basically involved hauling bags of grain around. and i'd make faora a better fighter than zod, too; he's a general, not a soldier.

this sounds perfect to me.
aztecRaingod - 9/14/2012, 4:53 AM
MOS Superman gets beat up by a woman. Not a good sign for the lates Supes film....
aztecRaingod - 9/14/2012, 4:58 AM
sos,

Its the movie CBM nerds deserve, and the one they need right now.
Grimm - 9/14/2012, 5:00 AM
looks like she pretty well handed supes his ass in the comics at one point. Makes sense.
aztecRaingod - 9/14/2012, 5:02 AM
Grimm, Thor was turned into a frog once in the comic. I dont think that necessarily means they should put it in Thor2. I just dont like the idea of Supes getting bitch slapped by a female.
Grimm - 9/14/2012, 5:04 AM
it happened with Reeves superman too, and frog Thor would be sweet! jk... would like to see Beta Ray though
monstalova - 9/14/2012, 5:04 AM
I have heard this report ages ago about supes gettinv beat up by faora.
So maybe it is legit?.....
Grimm - 9/14/2012, 5:06 AM
just google image search faora... there are lots of set pics
Frogman - 9/14/2012, 5:07 AM
@aztecRaingod She's not just a female, she's a Kryptonian soldier not to mention a psychopath. But whatever, keep your hugely sexist views. Why should Superman only get his ass handed to him by men and monsters?
RorMachine - 9/14/2012, 5:12 AM
I have no problem with this if it's true, I actually think it sounds cool. I just think they would reserve such a beat down for the main bad guy..I mean surely they are the ones that have the final face-off?
RorMachine - 9/14/2012, 5:13 AM
Equinox , it's a scene description..you were expecting something OTHER than spoilers?
marvel72 - 9/14/2012, 5:16 AM
i want to know who that is standing next to her in a motion capture suit,it doesn't look like zod.
PanochaLibre - 9/14/2012, 5:17 AM
I hope at the end of this movie he lays a beatin on Lois, lays her down and supermans that ho!
Jollem - 9/14/2012, 5:18 AM
superman with zack snyder-style fisticuffs...

aztecRaingod - 9/14/2012, 5:19 AM
frogman, If I was going to reintroduce such an iconic character to the world, this is not what I would be clamoring to put in the very first movie is all.
JDUKE25 - 9/14/2012, 5:30 AM
This sounds great if true. I want to see some beatdowns by both sides.
JDUKE25 - 9/14/2012, 5:32 AM
Maybe he doesn't want to hit a woman? Then after time goes on and he starts getting bloodied, he's like, "f*** it", then blasts her in to next year.
LFANCH - 9/14/2012, 5:36 AM
The only reason she does so well is cause superman won't hit a girl ;)
Jollem - 9/14/2012, 5:36 AM
i can dig it

toco89 - 9/14/2012, 5:38 AM
@JDuke

That's what I figure. She may be significantly more skilled, but Supes is significantly bigger. If the power proportions are the same, If she gets in close and Supes is willing to take a couple more hits, it could be game over, Superman wins.
sameoldthing - 9/14/2012, 5:49 AM
I don't mind Supes getting smacked around by a female or any other character..just as long as in the end,he defeats them be it by a fist to the face or some other way.

Superman does not always rely on brute force or fighting skill,he's a clever superhero.
dnno1 - 9/14/2012, 5:52 AM


It really looks like the so call source got his material from Action Comics #472. Zach Snyder does tend to respect source material he uses in his film, so maybe there is some truth to it. We will have to see.
ElDuce74 - 9/14/2012, 5:59 AM
Are people really saying it's not right he get's beat up by a woman? Seriously? In this day and age? Man, you would all lose your sh-t if it was a black lesbian kicking his a-s...Sexist and narrow minded fools.

And this makes TOTAL sense. Clark was probably raised with values that would limit his violence against women, no matter how evil she was. It could actually be a nice conflict for the character and the audience. Here is our hero getting his a-s handed to him by a female. The idea of Superman hitting a woman probably won't sit right with the audience and the character as well. It will be interesting if they explore that angle.

If memory serves correctly, in Superman 2 only Lois hit Ursa at the end? I remember a battle but I don't remember Superman actually hitting Ursa.
coolguy - 9/14/2012, 6:01 AM
This movie is going to be awesome. I'm a little unsure of cAvill now though after seeing cold light of day. He seems like he would be a good superman but he seems like such a kid.
coolguy - 9/14/2012, 6:03 AM
Shannon is great though. I hope it is like johns run in action where jor el betrays him to the council. I want to see brainiac or parasite or doomsday or something in the sequal though Along with building up lex.
JohnnyKrypton - 9/14/2012, 6:13 AM
"And this makes TOTAL sense. "

Not if Zod is no problem...then it's just pandering
LegacyFilms - 9/14/2012, 6:14 AM
Why does it matter? Woman or not, she's a bad*ss highly skilled soldier with the same powers as Superman. Think about it, Superman doesn't have that kind of training, now if he let Batman train him he would, which would be bad*ss. But, big brute bare knuckle brawlers could easily get their arses handed to them by a highly trained woman. Sex has nothing to do with it (never thought I'd say that) it's not about power, or how big he is compared to her. It's about skill, knowledge, speed, and stamina, and she likely has more than supes because she was trained to. Go build a time machine and live in the 50s if you wanna think that way, because "She's a woman, dur!"
SpiderArse92 - 9/14/2012, 6:27 AM
Pffft...the idiotic sexism in some of these comments is mind-numbingly irritating.

I think it sounds awesome. Especially because you know with a beat down like that, there's going to be one hell of an awesome comeback for him to win. Maybe realising his full potential/powers or something like that.

Cannot wait to see some proper action fights from this film!
Nomis1800 - 9/14/2012, 6:27 AM
Well she is a bitch. CAn't wait to see her bitching!
MrChuff - 9/14/2012, 6:36 AM
It's vital that Superman has his ass handed to him otherwise he's just totally invincible. Where's the drama in that?
It's always been one of the reasons why Supes isn't one of my fave superheroes - he's just too indestructible (unless you start bringing the tired old Kryptonite into the equation)
I'm looking forward to Snyder's take on this. Just the way the cloak swirled around his boots as he walked in the SDCC footage made my pecker twitch with glee.

For your health.
FanBoyBlack - 9/14/2012, 6:38 AM
It makes some sense to me. Usually the leader isn't the best fighter. They are usually the brains and have more charm than brawn. So it would make sense that the number 2 was the fighter. I like it. I just don't like seeing Superman struggle. He holds back most of the time... In Returns, Superman struggled to catch and stop the plane from falling from the sky... that isn't the Superman I like. I don't want him being all world, but he is Superman and withstand almost anything... anything except a military trained Kryptonian under a Yellow Sun.
AlSimmons - 9/14/2012, 6:53 AM
If he hits her back, he better be like, "BOOM! Equality, biatch!"
TheAbomination - 9/14/2012, 6:55 AM
Sounds brutal. Can't wait.
JDUKE25 - 9/14/2012, 6:58 AM
@AlSimmons lmao!! That would be epic.
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 9/14/2012, 7:08 AM
I'm absolutely fine with this. It all makes sense. Zod is a general who delegates his tasks and a master tactician who will not blindly enter a confrontation of any kind so to have Faora dish out his punishment is logical. If she kills Superman, she would have served him well, if Superman wins, he would learn from what he sees. Also, Zod and Faora would have superior fighting skills and experience to Superman at this point.
toco89 - 9/14/2012, 7:10 AM
@dgabbor

Niice point but you're wasting energy. Weight doesn't equal size. And you're roommate is a fat idiot I don't see how that pertains to Henry Cavill(6'2'') and Andje Traue(5'6'').

Nice guess on not being trained though, even though its wrong.

My ex was a black belt in karate and a gymnast, trained and strong. She was 5'4'', I was about 5'8'', and untrained. She hurt me bad a couple of times, but I took a couple of punches and a few knees and took my chance to use my size and strength.

Guile > Skills, but guile alone will not win you a fight.

Am I saying that Dwayne Johnson in his prime would beat Jet Li in his...absolutely not.
JULEZ13 - 9/14/2012, 7:15 AM
It makes complete sense to me that Faora will be the one to brutally kick Superman's ass. Most likely she'll be the first to fight him and CK has no prior military training. By this time Clark just became Superman so he doesn't know how to tap into the extent of his abilities.

I just hope the fight between Superman and Zod will be a little bit more evenly match cuz I'm not paying to watch a movie of Supernan gettin his ass kicked, I'm going to see Syperman kick some ass!!

MOS 2013 FTW!!!
