With the struggling DCU, finally inching towards its end with the upcoming The Flash, it’s safe to say that Man of Steel, which laid the foundation for the universe, also crafted the best villains of the DCEU. And it seems that Antje Traue, who portrayed the role Fiora-Ul, the intimidating right-hand Woman for General Zod, did have some weird experiences with fans during its release.
And while promoting the first film in the DCEU back in 2013, the actress expressed that not every interaction with fans was always pleasant for the Bye Bye Germany star.

Antje Traue was left stunned following a weird interaction with a fan
In an interview with the Empire Magazine, while promoting Man of Steel alongside Michael Shannon, Antje Traue revealed one weird interaction with one of the fans. While responding to the interviewer’s question of what were the weirdest questions they had to face, Traue revealed a strange question that one fan asked, which alluded to whether she’d sleep with Henry Cavill’s Superman. She said,
“What would you do if Superman showed up in your living room?”
And although it has been almost a decade since the duo of Traue and Shannon appeared in the DC universe, at last, they are set to make an appearance in the DC universe before the alleged reboot.

Antje Traue is set to return alongside Michael Shannon in The Flash
With The Flash inching toward its release, the movie is set to reset the DC universe and provide a clean slate for James Gunn to implement his DCU roadmap. And the upcoming movie, which will be bringing a lot of familiar faces from previous DC movies, including Michael Keaton’s Batman, the movie is also set to bring General Zod and Fiora-Ul into the mix.
And even though the characters eventually died by the end of Man of Steel, considering that the movie will be revolving around the concept of the multiverse, their return does make sense in context.

Although it isn’t clear whether these characters will be moving forward in the new DCU under the leadership of James Gunn and Peter Safran. But fans are happy that before it all ends, they will at least get to witness one of the best DCEU villains for one more time.
The Flash is set to hit theatres on 16 June 2023.
