Could Viggo Mortensen Become ZOD?
If you've seen Eastern Promises, you know what a badass Mortensen can be. While this would be an incredibly cool casting choice, it hasn't reached the official negotiations stage just yet. Mortensen is currently in talks for Snow White and the Huntsmen at Universal. If he doesn't land that gig, he'd be available for Superman. If he does get it, maybe Universal and Warner Bros. could reach some kind agreement to allow Viggo to do both films.
It was also reported that Snyder is not just looking at Mortensen and Costner but three female roles as well. I like that we're getting two casting rumors in the same week. Hopefully this means that Warner Bros. is making some headway in getting this film made.
Mortensen has my support to play Zod.
"I think he'd be a great Zod
but what does a guy have to do to get Metallo or Darkseid or Maxima or Parasite in a Superman movie?
someone he can actually, oh I don't know......FIGHT?! "
Zod can fight supes way better than metallo and parasite(probably even both put together),maxima is'nt a villian,and darkseid is'nt one of those villians who'll appear in the first movie.
No. I like Viggo Mortenson but he was in Superman 2 and Lex Luthor has been in 4 out of 5 Superman movies. Showcase a wider range of Supes rogues starting with Brainiac. It's a reboot of Superman so now's the time to show off new villains to the general population who know about Superman but not his rogues gallery.
I would love to see Zod in a new movie, Lex is a great villain(maybe the best), but I like to see someone who can go toe to toe with Supes, not just outsmart him. Either way I hope its better than the last movie, I grew up with the original movies and now I have kids I don't want them to have to live with a mediocre Superman movie.
