Terrible idea... anything to do with Zod.. even mentioning his name.

Well I would not go that far, but the people that felt Superman Returns payed too much homage to the first film and didn't exactly love it for that reason will stay far away if Zod Returns.... Might as well give it that name Zod Returns...and the box office will be worse then this one.

Someone should make a petition for Zod not being in the sequel.

I think this could be like Raime with Sandman and Venom... except this time Singer with Zod and Brainiac. I personally want Luthor (minor role) with Brainiac (bigger, but not the biggest role) making a clone of Zod that Superman beats early on, confusing him, then a Superman clone totally throwing off Superman and ruining his reputation. The clone will turn out to be Bizarro.

I think Zod would be cool to have for the sequel. Imagine with todays special effects a massive battle between two Kryptonians. And have Superman kill him in the end just like he did in the comics.

zod would be rad to have, but i'd prefer him in a third film. i'd like to see someone new in the second film. but, ultimately, if they go with zod, im sure it'll be amazing...the fight scenes will be ridiculous.

and just because zod will be involved doesnt mean they'll be hacking supes 2. i can see the concern over that due to the numerous references of the original donner film in SR...but im sure if they go with zod it'll be a totally original story. much like how the dark knight will be using the joker, like burton has, but it'll be a new and original joker story.

No to Zod. Even if it was the modern Comic version of Zod. I want to see someone else before they bring him him.

Default Re: The Official General Zod Thread

eh, I wouldn't mind Zod so long as there were another villain involved in the plot, too. Maybe have Zod be the main villain in part 2 (with Lex Luthor), with Brainiac in the background manipulating things, then have him reveal himself in part 3. that's how i'd like things to play out, anyway...

someone already mentioned this, but I thought I'd say it again -- Singer using Zod in the sequel does NOT mean that it'll automatically be a rehash of SUPERMAN II. What I mean is, the presence of Zod doesn't necesarily mean the movie has to be a rehash of SUPERMAN II (in the same way that RETURNS was a rehash of Donner's SUPERMAN). If anything, the way I envision it, if Zod IS a/the villain in the sequel, it'll be an entirely NEW Zod, with NO referneces AT ALL to SUPERMAN II -- a Zod who's never been to Earth before.

RETURNS really only puts Donner's SUPERMAN in a vague history -- NOT SUPERMAN II!! For all we know, Zod hasn't been to Earth yet!

Actually they've made three MAJOR references to Superman II.

1. Lex Luthor knows that location of the Fortress of Solitude and he knows his way around in Superman Returns. Even Kitty says that he acts like he's been there before. In Superman II, Lex found the Fortress of Solitude.

2. Jason White, the son of Superman and Lois Lane. Clark and Lois had sex in the Fortress of Solitude in Superman II. In Superman Returns we have little Jason.

3. Lois doesn't know that Clark is Superman (yet she apparently had sex with him). At the end of Superman II, Lois forgets that Clark is Superman. In Superman Returns, she still doesn't know that Clark is Superman.

Zod already got a chance to be on the silver screen, why can't a Superman villain besides Zod and Lex have a chance to shine on the silvere screen? Besides, since SR was just a rehash of Superman I, if they use Zod what will prevent this movie from being a rehash of Superman II?

You can have 1 billion villains and make it work as long as they 1) can all act , 2) worh within the story and 3) kick supes ass in a 200 million CGI fight scene orgy

I want to see that, but it's definitely more important that it works for the story, indeed. King Kong had a lot of meaningless bashfests that while visually amazing for the first few minutes, just put me to sleep zzzzzzz afterwards so maybe you know where I'm coming from with this idea.

BUT ANYONE BUT ZOD!!! NO MORE VAGUE HISTORY!!! I'LL EVEN TAKE SUPES VS HARRY POTTER INSTEAD OF ZOD

YES... USE SOMEONE WHO DOES MAGIC.

Terrence Stamp is still around, therefore put him in. He should have been in Returns really. Sure he's older, but either work that into the storyline, or use X2 CGI.

A lot of things. I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- if Zod is used as the main villain in the sequel, THIS DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY MAKE IT A REHASH OF SUPERMAN II IN THE SAME VAIN THAT RETURNS WAS A REHASH OF DONNER'S SUPERMAN!! I would be perfectly fine with Zod in the sequel as long as he is used creatively and/or with ANOTHER villain.

if Zod is the next villain...i will hate Singer foreverz. i like how he used the originals as a vague history but he needs to move the story forward, not backward.

Perhaps but if Zod is the only villain, it will increase the likelyhood of the sequel being a SM II rehash and I don't trust Singer to be original at this point.

Man, I'm the only insane guy on here, I guess. I honestly wouldn't mind seeing Zod brought back into the equation. I also wouldn't mind seeing any one of Supes' other rogues gallery members. As long as I like the film and it's quality in my eyes, then I don't give a damn if they use Prankster and Toyman (although they wouldn't be tops of my list).
