Viggo Mortensen is the Hot Pick to Play Zod in Superman: The Man of Steel


The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that sources have informed them that producer Christopher Nolan and director Zack Snyder are looking to cast Viggo Mortensen for the role of General Zod in The Man of Steel, the upcoming reboot of the Superman movie Franchise.

Their sources say no talks have commenced and that Mortensen is just a “person of interest,” much like Kevin Costner is for the role of Jonathan Kent. The actors aren’t the only ones considered for their respective roles, though they are the ones most seriously talked about.

Snyder is in the midst of meeting actors for not only the role of Zod and Kent, but the three female parts well.

General Zod is a classic villain from the Superman comics, and was also the villain in Superman II, where he was portrayed rather camply by Terrance Stamp.
