Three superpowers collide as Gal Gadot has revealed an image of herself on the set of her latest movie, Criminal, which also happens to star Antje Traue and Ryan Reynolds.

Gadot happens to be the new Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman, with Traue playing the villainess Faora in last year’s Man of Steel, and of course, Ryan Reynolds is the (former?) Green Lantern.

The film also stars Kevin Costner, who played Pa Kent in Man of Steel, Gary Oldman who played Commissioner Gordon in the Nolan Batman movies, Tommy Lee Jones and Alice Eve.

Gal Gadot is expected back on the set of Batman Vs. Superman as Wonder Woman later this year.

Exclusive: Batman/Superman To Feature Mercy Graves: Lex Luthor’s Amazonian Bodyguard

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10580:]]

Cosmic Book News has been tipped off from the same source that gave us the Bryan Cranson cast as Lex Luthor news that the new Batman/Superman movie set to star Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill will feature the DC Comics character Mercy Graves.

We have no other information in regards to how the character will be used in the movie, but Mercy Graves first appeared in Superman: The Animated Series back in 1996, created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, as the bodyguard and chauffeur of Lex Luthor.

Mercy Graves’ first comic book appearance was in Detective Comics #735, in the Batman storyline “No Man’s Land,” where another female bodyguard for Lex Luthor was also introduced by the name of Hope.

The storyline revealed the duo went toe-to-toe with Superman, with it coming out in later issues of Justice League: Cry For Justice that Mercy Graves is a member of the Amazons, the all-female warrior nation that Wonder Woman belongs to.

We can speculate that David Goyer and Zack Snyder will continue with their theme of using strong female roles in the DC movies much the same they did with the Faora, played by Antje Traue, considered a breakout performance by many in Man of Steel.

Obviously the potential use of Amazons in the Batman/Superman movies begs the questions whether or not Wonder Woman will make an appearance or cameo. David Goyer recently stated he would like to do a Wonder Woman film.

The character Mercy was also featured in episodes of Smallville as Lex Luthor’s “#2,” which was more an amalgam of many different DC comic book characters with Tess Mercer.

The sequel to “Man of Steel” goes into production next year for a July 17, 2015 release also starring Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

Watch Man of Steel Superman Vs. Faora Leaked Battle (Video)

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:10485:]]

Below you can watch the Superman vs. Faora battle from the Man of Steel.

The first clip is official footage that was released as part of a promotion for the film.

It features Superman reacting to his mother’s life being threatened, and most likely – is the first time Superman ever punched someone.

The second video then follows the aftermath which leads into Superman fighting Faora.

You will note Superman doesn’t hurt any bystanders in the area, which a lot of people online were complaining about.

You will also note that Superman stops fighting Zod when he is in Smallville, and only when he is attacked by the U.S Military, Faora and the giant Kryptonian does he fight back.

As I stated in the Aquaman Easter Egg footage, I’m curious to see how much Zack Snyder addresses in the Man of Steel Blu-Ray with the director commentary turned on.

Check Superman vs. Faora; the scenes involve Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue and Christopher Meloni:

Antje Traue Met Christopher Nolan On Man Of Steel Set (Video)

A big question amongst the fanboys is whether or not Christopher Nolan will be involved in the future of the DC shared movie universe.

Or perhaps the bigger question is if that is a good thing?

We won’t get into that here, but it just became known that Nolan was responsible for keeping Man of Steel a Superman-focused movie, say, instead of having it tied into a half-dozen other stories or characters.

Total Film caught up with some of the cast and crew of Man of Steel, with director Zack Snyder offering his thoughts.

We already knew that Nolan didn’t have much to do with production, but did have a hand in the story and development.

We also hear from Henry Cavill, Michael Shannon, Amy Adams and Antje Traue.

Of the four, Antje Traue, who plays Faora, mentioned she met Nolan while on the set in LA.

Watch Man of Steel Henry Cavill & Antje Traue Workout Video For National Guard

The National Guard has partnered up with the Man of Steel, which makes sense given how Zack Snyder gave the U.S. Military a quality showing in the movie, and now a new video has been released featuring new Superman Henry Cavill and the evil bad ass psychopath known as Faora, played by German actress Antje Traue.

The pair of Kryptonians are shown preparing and working out for the Man of Steel with Mark Twight of Gym Jones.

Antje Traue seems to be the break out star of the movie as she gave quite the performance.

Gail Simone Wants To Do A Faora Comic Book For DC

Regardless what you felt about the Man of Steel movie, one stand out – at least for me – was the character of Faora, played by German actress Antje Traue.

Arguably she was more bad ass than Zod.

Well, I’m obviously not the only one that has noticed as a certain popular DC Comics writer known for her take on female characters has chimed in.

Gail Simone, presently writing Batgirl for DC and Red Sonja for Dynamite, and who has a fierce-fan following, wants Faora.

“I just want to write Faora. That’s all,” Simone tweeted.

Faora gave a great showing as a female comic book character in the Man of Steel; how about for DC Comics as well?

Let’s make it so Mr. DiDio!
