I was thinking it was possibly another character we don't know about yet or something.

That thought had occurred to me. There are rumours of metallo? But I would have thought a big name would be in a role like that.

Brainiac perhaps?

I think that would be a general first thought for most, but the reason I dismiss it for now, is to my knowledge he isn't bringing an army with him. If he was bringing an additional soldier that would have been brought up before with Zod and Faora wouldn't it?

Also Shannon is sporting facial hair in the Zod mo-cap pic. I would think if this were a stunt double, he would have the same right?

well, we don't know that.

in the picture, if you look to the left of that guy, you see another guy wearing what appears to be a similar looking "CGI" suit......

so, if there are multiple characters with similar outfits, that might suggest a group of soldiers or henchman.......

Ya it could be a simple explanation. Are my eyes playing tricks on me cause I see 3 people in a mo-cap suit? There is a guy all the way to right of picture as well.

hmmm.....it's hard to tell with the guys on the right.......

also, I didn't see the Zod mo-cap pic......where is that?

and if Zod is sporting facial hair, and these guys aren't, then that might be further "proof" that these guys are just henchman/soldiers and not Zod himself.......

but, who really knows.........lol

Brainiac, or maybe they are also using that location as krypton as well as smallville.

Or its an earlier krypton visit to smallville, an awesome plot twist would be if krypton DNA was used to seed earth with humans, would make kryptonites literal gods and explain why they could pass off as human.

Hmm maybe we are getting somewhere with our investigation

It could very well be 3 soldiers for Zod. Interesting we haven't spotted Faora yet in anything.

Wait a minute is Shannon the 3rd guy to the right in that photo? Maybe it is Zod and 2 other guys.

Yo Showy and Jamie you should post on your TMT site about that pic. I really think the guy on the right matches the mo-cap Shannon pic.

There are 3 of them in the photo if you look closely. Everyone focuses on the center dude cause he stands out so much. The darker guy on the right, matches the Shannon pic very closely.

its hard to tell, as the pic is kinda blurry... an I might just be completely wrong here

but, to me that kinda looks like, Kevin Costner...as for a CG suit, I was thinking possibly, Clark seeing the spirit of, Pa Kent (metaphorically, of course) like a vision (not his actual spirit) were he would be partly invisible or something...

an as for the other guy(s) in the cg suit, idk

since Zod is supposed to be a GENERAL, it's not inconceivable for him to have an army of some sorts.

I'm sure when he and Faora were sentenced to the Phantom Zone, their soldiers were probably sent to the prison as well.

or, he rallies the convicts from the Zone into a new army.......

just hope he surrounds himself with more capable henchmen than Lex does.......

It certainly isn't mr crowe. I however are little surprised he is in town. Perhaps for rehearsals. I'm sure that chap is probably a minion of Zod.

2. I never liked Singers attitude, and that makes for a big difference in my levels of cynicism. I already disliked him for his character destruction of cyclops in X-Men, and the he came into Superman with this 'Let's bring the Donner movies back to life' idea.

And he didn't even make a good movie out of it. Which could have been possible, even if I'd prefer a reboot than an after thought add on decades after the original.

He cast Routh for being a good lookalike for Reeve, he cast Bosworth because Spacey wanted her, he took Marsden with him from X-Men (proving without doubt that he has no regard for cyclops whatsover) and made up a character for him - a character that in itself caused one of the biggest moral controversies in a Superman story IMO.

The movie was dull, trying too hard to be a christ metaphor, and made the Superman character both unrelatable and a little unlikeable.

The suit itself was just very underwhelming. It looked plasticy and cheap.

Why are people less critical of Nolan/Snyder team up so far?

Because it's confirmed as a reboot. Because they have stated it will be a Superman we've never seen before, but something grounded in reality. Because the casting has all been unexpected but inspired. Because Nolan is someone the GA has been given no reason to doubt. Because Goyer knows his comic books. Because Snyder is very good at creating a visual masterpeice.

And because the suit is not underwhelming, doesn't look cheap, and is basically the opposite of all the complaints about the Singer one. (Blue was too light, red was too dark, no on liked the boots, or the t-shirt style neckline, or the cape).

I don't see any irony.
This post is so delicious I want to lick it.

Has anyone thought that maybe the mo-cap guys are American military? Maybe like a science police type of thing. Hell, I still think Metallo could show up.

That guy could be Shannon, but it's not exactly a definitive picture.
