Viggo Mortensen "Eyed" For General Zod In Superman Reboot!

The cast of the Superman reboot may be growing with talent, surrounding an unknown lead. And latest reports suggest that LOTR' Viggo Mortensen is a "person of interest". Check it out!



Citing sources of The Hollywood Reporter, it seems that supporting cast for Zack Snyder's Superman: Man of Steel are coming along greatly. With the relatively unknown Henry Cavill leading the reboot, the site states verbatim:

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that producer Christopher Nolan and director Zack Snyder are zeroing in on an intriguing actor to play the villain: Viggo Mortensen. Hes said to be at the top of the list to play General Zod, the evil and super-powered scientist first introduced not in the comic books but in 1980's Superman II.


Viggo Mortensen, notably known as 'Aragorn' of the Lord Of The Rings franchise, is still in negotiations for Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman. THR further states that Mortensen is just a "person of interest," much like Kevin Costner for Jonathan "Pa" Kent. However, both actors are at the top list.

With this report, we can assume that the rumor of the villainess Ursa making an appearance, may be legit, having common villains with the original Superman film & it's sequel. What do you think?

Anyhow, while director Zack Snyder is also meeting actresses for three female parts as well, Superman: Man Of Steel is slated for theaters Mid-December 2012!
