Thumbs up Viggo Mortensen May Be Cast in Superman?

He has left the "Snow White" project and now is eyed for a role in Superman. What role do you guys think he will play.

As long as he does a Russian accent, I'm stoked!

Lex Luthor maybe? Idk but I'm sure he'd be amazing in whatever role they give him.

Great actor! I just don't see where he'd fit in the film...

I think he'd be a great Luthor, would be terrific if he was in this movie.

Please, this is Variety trying to make a story out of Viggo deciding against Snow White, last week, Zack Snyder himself said that the Viggo rumor is false.

He said that before he sropped out of Snow White. Now it could be a possibility again.

He didn't say it was a false rumor, he said 'yeah viggo's not gonna be in this, let me clear that up right now.'

Clearly, things have changed.

If they do manage to land him, I'll be furious.

Mother****er turned down the role of Ra's al Ghul .

As great as Neeson is, he's a lesser actor so I'm glad that Viggo will have a shot at a much more prominent role to take advantage of his talents.

Along with Cooper, Hopkins and DDL. And now Hopkins is in Thor and maybe Viggo in Superman. Can you blame them for passing on Batman when their last memory of a Batman film was Batman & Robin?

I know. I was mostly joking .

I was disappointed when he turned it down, but I understood why he did - along with the others you mentioned.

I can see why he did though. It was towards the end of 2003 and had done three huge, crowd-pleasing blockbusters. Maybe he felt like he'd had his fill of those flicks and post-LOTR did not-so-commercial stuff like A History of Violence, Appaloosa, Eastern Promises and The Road.

Here we are ten years since Fellowship of the Ring (I know...it doesn't feel like a decade...) and Mortensen wants to make a good-paying gig for a high-profile movie. Explains why he was also up for Snow White & the Huntsman.

Is that story true?

I always thought of Mortensen as an actor who didn't care about how much money he made.

It came from Heat Vision (the genre-geared subsidiary of Hollywood Reporter) and Borys Kit has a good track-record. I'd say it's true.

That's disappointing. Still a fantastic actor, though.

I will tolerate Zod to land Mortensen. I know I'm backtracking but hell, it's Viggo Mortensen.
