Default Re: The General ZOD Thread

I mean..Zack did deny that Zod would be in the film by stating "For now, it's just a rumor."

Whatever that means. I think either he's being truthful, lying, or didn't know how to respond to the rumor. Especially 'For Now'.

It depends how much power Zack has over the screenplay because there were rumors that David Goyer's script was a bit rough when Zack came on aboard. I mean, maybe he is changing it a bit. Who knows.

Lex as the baddie would be cutting us short. I see this as a solid play at starting off the ground running, while still leaving plenty of fire for the end.

Have to admit, with Snyder at the helm it certainly could be absolutely EPIC.


What about Liam Neeson for Zod. He's tall, commanding with a powerful voice and a good actor.

Eric Bana?

Ciaran Hinds?

Thomas Jane?

Just throwing some names out there most might not think of that I think could pull it off, albeit with different styles of characters.

I'm also assuming someone a bit older than Cavill.

I've decided I'm going to pretend this is the case, no matter how unlikely it is. Brainiac, shrunken city; that is a Superman movie I want to watch, goddammit.
Yeah that sounds a lot better.

I mean, it depends how they'll reintroduce these characters:

What worked for Superman 1 and 2 is the backstory of the Phantom Zone. The setup was fast and easy.

Here, I don't know if they'll go down that path. Again, I hope they're prisoners of Brainiac ala Kandor.

Tends to depend on who the director is, and usually who the executive producers are

That I wouldn't mind at all.

Totally up for that.

I don't know, Neeson seems pretty open to genre roles like that.

I'll admit. It'll be crazy if Goyer and Synder decides just to use Ursa, and no Zod...

If he was open to the crapfest that was Clash of the Titans then a Snyder/Nolan Superman lead role should be a no brainer for him if offered. Neeson was good in it though, I like him in just about everything hes done.

Anyone remember Darkman? haha

I caught it on the other day and had totally forgotten that was the first thing I had seen Neeson in. The first thing I had remembered was Next of Kin, Then I saw Rob Roy after that I think.

IF they were going for more unknown names (which I highly doubt, but anyway..) -

Richard Armitage:





Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (he was actually my pick for Thor way back when):

To go back over what else Zack said in the past about the Zod rumours:

Quote:
When it comes to the rumor about General Zod appearing in this sequel, he replies with, "...just wrong. The Internet has no idea what's going on."
http://www.latinoreview.com/news/sny...eral-zod-11620

and this is from CHUD back in Oct. 2010:

Quote:
Is Zod the villain? Heat Vision claimed it was, as did Latino Review. Interestingly, McWeeny talked to someone "close" to the production who also had General Zod on the brain: "The idea of Kryptonians as immigrants came up. Superman, raised as Clark Kent with a connection to American human culture, follows the rules of the country and the rules of the world not because he has to, but because he chooses to. But if a group of Kryptonians arrived on Earth, led, let's say, by General Zod, and they didn't feel any particular reason to follow anyone's rules or laws but their own, that might well allow a smart storyteller to put Superman/Clark in a position where he's serving as the enforcer for the ultimate case of illegal immigration of all time. And to complicate things emotionally, these are people from his planet, people who should be his family."

My choice for Zod is Michael Sheen. I think he could really bring a great quality to the role.

Yeah, the Zod rumors have been flip-flopping for the past few months. But I do have to say that Drew's track record has been sucking when it comes to news. He was the one that said that Bradley Cooper was going to be CAST as Green Lantern. I'm talking about CAST, not the leading candidate. Samething with Jackie Earle Haley as Sinestro.

Also, I remember Drew stating that the 'crew' member was just thinking out loud and had no idea what the Superman reboot is all about.

Not to mention that some sites are twisting Variety's words aroudn and are saying that Lois isn't in the movie.

Interesting, I had no idea he was even in The Hobbit. I had zero interest in that project when it was first announced, but I'm liking the cast for it that I've heard about so far.

Absolutely not. No Liam Neeson. He's already Ra's Al Ghul. Unless you wouldn't mind if hathaway played both catwoman and lois.

This guy is playing a major role in a game of thrones this april. He won't be unknown for long, and I'm betting he's a pretty great actor.
