Default The Official Michael Shannon IS General Zod

now that we've got word that Ursa might be in the film, we have to assume Zod will be also...


...discuss Zod and who you'd like to see him played by.

I remember people suggesting butler, since snyder's worked with him, and he can get in excellent shape. He wouldn't be too bad.

personally, i'm tired of seeing everyone suggest Gerard Butler. he's such an obvious choice...be more creative with your choices people!!!

Hmmm...

Outside the box, outside the box, outside the box...

I can't think of anything but a box.

I'll come back later with some creative suggestions.

I just don't want to see this again.

No time for other characters to get attention. Brainiac? I hope maybe he's included in it somehow also.

General Zod again would be another mistake IMO if it isn't incorporated with other characters in the mythos that haven't had the time to shine.

To offer another perspective, I think the general audience will be happy to see semi-gods duking it out in the city of Metropolis. I doubt they even realize Zod was already in a movie.

i honestly wouldn't want to see Brainiac in the first movie...at least as the main villain. he's probably Superman's most dangerous foe, so they should save him for a potential sequel at the earliest.

yeah saving braniac for the second one would just make it more epic. if they included him in the first, they probly would've made him a kryptonian system like in STAS.

Singer said "save it for the sequel" too, and that turned out just fine...

I'm not a singer fan, his superhero movies are ashamed to be superhero movies. I'm glad we have this movie going on now. I can't imagine singer's braniac having been very epic or interesting either.

Exactly.

This just takes us back into retread when Superman needs a daring villain that hasn't been explored. Don't give the audience another reason to reject it. There is reboot/remake fatigue out there so it might backfire.

We'll see. I'm not to particularly happy but we'll see as we learn more.

Inconsequential as it was more than the villain that divided the fanbase. Not much loss for many that have seen that movie.

Zod's a great stepping stone. You don't sacrifice the action, yet you don't blow your load too early. Superman's rogues gallery isn't all that vast. I honestly feel like Braniac and maybe Darkseid are the pinnacle of what can be achieved. As such they do deserve to be the ones to end the franchise with the biggest bang possible. Having them start off the reboot would either diminish their full potential because of all the setup involved in a first film, or it would damper the chances of the sequel to one-up its predecessor.

thing is though, we're not the target audience (the general populace). the target audience most likely don't even remember General Zod from Superman 2. if they do then they barely remember...

My point is, I'm getting pretty tired of the "save it for the sequel" attitude. It's incredibly presumptious and often backfires.

"You'll see the REAL Galactus in the Silver Surfer spin-off." Yeah, how's that comin' along?

I wonder if they could do bizarro, metallo, doomsday, and battle suit lex in one movie. Have them be all attempts by luthor to take down supes.

We don't know that they have a save it for a sequel attitude. Look at batman begins, they chose the villains they thought were best for the story, and didn't pay attention to previous movies. I'm sure they were doing the same when writing this.

just calm down. no one's saying we don't wanna see some awesome action. we're just saying that we want them to have some rich material for a possible sequel.
