he is pretty good...but yeah, when I watch his movies I pay more attention to his eye than him. That Kim Basinger film he was in where he played a Satanist was decent but I couldn't enjoy it because I was never sure which eye to look into!

I would love this. His wonderfully hammy performance in Centurion is just what Zod needs.

And it could be Snyder's way of saying sorry. Wasn't there some other film Goode was pursuing, but stopped thinking he'd get Superman?

*Various whinings about Zod being in the film instead of a new and visually interesting villain*

Good. Thank you Superherohype. Glad I wasn't needed.

But for serious, as much as I trust Nolan in his bringing this script up in the first place, as much as I trust Goyer to continue his track record of writing DC movies that I enjoy, as much as I trust Zack Snyder to make a kick ass action movie...Zod? Really? The least visually interesting Superman villain there is? At least Lex could have his gigantic green battle suit. Hell, Mr. Mxyzptlk is a living cartoon character. That would be more interesting than Zod. We need visually interesting. We need a character that just reaches out and grabs the viewer from the very first trailer. I just don't think Zod is it. Plus, like many complaints about Superman Returns, we've seen Zod before! Give us something new dammit!

Oh, and...

Looks like somebody doesn't read the comics. The modern comics love to reference Donner's continuity at every opportunity possible.

I believe it was Abe Lincoln : Vampire Hunter...or something like that.

I actually think Goode would make an excellent , youthful Jor El . Who knows , he may get it given that he was the runner up. It does make me wonder if Synder's old buddy Butler is gonna play Zod.

You're welcome.


I really dont have much of a problem with Zod, Ursa and Non, if that's the way it goes. Yeah, if we are going to deal with Kryptonian background Id much prefer it to be Braniac but that to me would be a big sci-fi, outer space movie and frankly they are doing that with Green Lantern and besides shouldnt the first movie really be about Superman and Earth?
These three could definately give Superman a multi-continent beat down, while providing some good backstory.

Not sure how I feel about General Zod all over again... if he's not the ONLY villain, and someone like Brainiac is involved then I'm happy. But if Zod is the sole villain for the movie than I'm gonna be sorely disappointed I feel. But maybe not, we'll see.


What about Eric Bana for Zod? He did an awesome job as Nero in Star Trek. (lol, FilmNerdJamie beat me to it.)


But a couple other ideas:

Clive Owen
Guy Pearce

If it wasn't for Superman II and the fact that it would feel like yet another tribute to Donner, I think Zod and co would kick ass onscreen today. There would definitely be potential for some EPIC brawling and fullblown display of Kryptonian powers.
ZOD the strategist played by Fiennes, URSA the sadistic played by Diane Kruger and NON the destroyer played by Nathan Jones.
Could work, but they would definitely have to pave the way for Brainiac who's forthcoming ends the movie.

I personally don't mind Zod being in it. It could provide for a great film. Plus it could be fresher than we think. Other than Stamp's presence, they were lame. I'm sorry, but the second film wasn't all that great.

All that "What is this Earth?" **** wasn't amusing and it was cheesy. The fighting sucked and it was just lame.

Snyder could do something very cool here. We don't know yet. When this reboot was announced, they said it would tap into Krytonian mythology no? Zod is from Krypton and this could very well be based on Birthright in some way, which did explore that.

If we get Africa, then him coming back to Smallville and then into Metropolis, find some way to fit Zod in and about Clark's background, imagine Snyder's visual style applied to all this and it could be great.

Yep, it's very likely we're getting at least Ursa. Maybe the whole trio, but Ursa might be alot more in focus in this version.

Anyways, I think this scenario is more probable than introducing Brainiac already. He's quite a heavy foe to bring in this early in the game. They might actually save him for later after all.

As for the casting of Zod, since he is a general, I see him as late 30's to mid 40's or there about.
Russell Crowe.
Clive Owen.
Eric Bana.
Sean Bean

I like the idea of Jude Law as Zod myself, not sure how popular a choice he is with fans though. But I like him.

Eric Bana would be really good too.
