We can add more more female Kryptonian to the Man of Steel movie as Zack Snyder has brought back Apollonia Vanova who played Silhouette for him in Watchmen.
The Man of Steel IMDb page has Apollonia Vanova playing the female Kryptonian, Nadira, who in the comic books used her psychokinetic abilities to commit crimes and was sentenced to the Phantom Zone. Nadira was also a sleeper agent on Earth for Zod.
More than likely Nadira is a member of Zod’s crew in the Phantom Zone in the Man of Steel as well.
Vanova joins Antje Traue, another female Kryptonian, who plays the psychopath known as Faora.
I don’t believe any pictures have surfaced of Apollonia Vanova as Nadira, but we did see that pic of Zod going to the Phantom Zone in trailer #3 that revealed a batch of Kryptonians (below). Perhaps Nadira is off camera in that picture.
Apollonia Vanova is a Canadian artist, originally from Czechoslovakia, who is an accomplished singer and actress who recently released a new album and appeared in Julien Magnat’s Faces in the Crowd, and the CBC hit comedy TV series Insecurity.

Man of Steel opens June 14th in IMAX 3D starring Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Michael Shannon as Zod.
