    By the time this movie comes out it will be about 35 years since Zod was last on screen.

    Is he like in Smallville a lot or something? I don't really watch any TV shows, so I'm ignorant here.

    I thought the whole point of this reboot was to give us a brand new take on Superman...? Here they are repeating a villain... shouldn't it be Brainiac or Bizarro or something? Dammit.

    Good thing I really like the Zod character!,I agree with others in hoping he ain't the main one though.

    With a name like Man of Steel...why not make Metallo as the villian. I thought Superman secret origins had a cool origin story mixed with Metallo and Lex...with some Parasite too.

    I love General Zod.

    Bring him on. He'd be a welcome oasis from Lex Luthor, too.

    brainiac and/or metallo would have been more exciting news, but i a rad zod film would be extremely entertaining.

    As long as he isn't the only villain. Honestly, I don't like the old superman movies, so I'd like to see a different take on zod.

    Parasite has a lot of good potential he not only can steal Superman's strength but his thoughts as well. His first episode was one of the best episodes of the animated series... he started out as this weakling and he slowly became more power hungry and evil. I think he's a fascinating character and could be a great villain.

    Bizarro would be fun too because he has that whole Frankenstein thing going for him. Also I'm okay with Luthor, just as long as he's a mad scientist.

    Zodiac? Nah, that's been done.

    Zod is a fantastic villain who has rarely been used properly. He has yet to reach his full potential. On film, TV, or in the comics.

    Why the hell wouldn't people want a superpowered despot on film? If they're not going to use Darkseid, they might as well use Zod.

    There's an amazing villain waiting behind the basics. I hope someone figures that out

    I'm hoping that Zod will be the physical threat, while Braniac will be the cerebral threat.

    If we get a physically imposing Zod, like Gerard Butler, I might get more excited.

    Zod in Superman II always looked too gaunt and thin... like Grand Moff Tarkin or something.

    I just want awesome fight scenes like there were in the DCU Online trailer.

    REALLY not happy about General Zod being the villain again. I was really hoping for a Braniac/Metallo/Luthor movie. But nooooo.

    Nolan, please at least give me back Routh as Superman. At least give me that.

    "General, would you care to step outside?"

    Yup, I'm diggin' this news. Any news about Brainiac would be an added bonus.

    Smallville shouldn't count at all. The horrible writing on the series makes Superman Returns look like an amazing film. Plus, SV had terrible versions of Zod, and I said versions because we had a phantom named General Zod from the phantom zone who took over Lex, and then we had a young, cloned version of Zod, this time Major Zod, who led Kandorians around Metropolis only for them to turn to Clark's side and the whole season ended up concluding to a worthless two minute fight between the weak Zod carrying a blue kryptonite knife.
