I'm with goirish83, I was really hoping for Brainiac too :P  At least we can expect to see a full-blown earth-shattering slugfest at some point. I love Zod, but casting someone other than Terence Stamp is like casting someone other than Kurt Russell as Snake Plissken (and don't get me started on that!). Was really hoping for Brainiac, and Geoff Johns' Brainiac at that :P

Didn't Snyder nix the Zod rumour ages ago?

So now its official that Zod is at least one of the villains. If he is the only bad guy, then I doubt ill be too interested in this movie.

Zod has been done and he is a boring character and the fact that this is the early days of supes, it just sounds like Smallville.

This isnt looking good. But I hope Im wrong, supes deserves a great movie

This is what I call pulling a Ledger. Great news.

I remember some months back when the word was that Jeremy Renner was being considered for the Escape From New York remake. And I thought to myself, "Self, I'm not necessarily against that idea." Of all the actors I could think of possibly playing Snake Plissken, Jeremy Renner was the best choice.

This is epic casting.... I know we were all hoping for something new, but Zod guarantees Supes will fight someone on his level which is fantastic....  Shannon is a fantastic actor who will bring something very unique to Zod.  This also falls in line with the General Lane/ Metallo rumors... Once earth sees the destructive capabilities of Zod they willl immediately want to respond... building Metallo will be that response.  A fail safe against any future Kryptonian threat, or even against Supes himself if needed.

I STILL hate the idea of an Escape From New York remake!

Zod's okay as long as they take this opportunity to create a new Metropolis set within the same world as The Green Lantern and maybe even Wonder Woman...

Take this opportunity to get to work on the Pilot for the first season of the new live action Batman TV series that will start shooting when the Dark Knight Rises comes out next year, restart Batman and Gotham in the first season and end on a Cliffhanger which will go into a Justice League and Titans movies in summer 2014 and a new Batman movie using the Cataclysm storyline going into a second season based on No Mans Land or a Knightfall movie going into a second season with Azreal taking over as Batman for the first half of the season and Bruce's return in the secoond half to take Azreal down...

No way that this movie will be good in my book with a remake of Zod now.  This is a slap in the face for Super-man comics with tons of stories.

Actually I can see the last episode of the first season of Batman in my head, after setting up Nightwing Oracle and Azreal during the season Bane comes to Gotham and tracks him down and ends the episode watching Batman and planning his first move...

The Knightfall movie will end with Bruce's back broken...

The second series Azreal takes over while Bruce repairs the damage done by Bane, for every Azreal episode there is a flashback episode to Bruce's early life as Batman, Dick becoming Robin, then Nightwing and Barbara changing from Batgirl to Oracle...

Flesh out Gotham and it's place in the DC Universe... Make us proud!

 That's a LOT of mighty wishful thinking, Bunyon.

I am glad Mania is a little calmer than some of the other sites I've been on, people just went apeshit-nuts over against the idea of Zod being cast.

You know we have no idea how the story is going to shape out.  So what Zod is going to be used again, we've not seen a clip or trailer of this movie.  Zod could be great, hell another Lex Luthor story could be great.  Sure we'd like to see other villians being used.  There is quite a few to choose from. 

People asked why another Batman movie?  Why the Joker?  Why Ledger, it's going to suck?!  You know what?  I trust Nolan as producer will keep this straight and give us something good.  I bet you he and his brother could take the actors from Superman Returns along with Richard Pryor's corpse and Nuclear man from supes IV; rewrite a new script give the movie to Uwe Boll and with Chris as producer give us a masterpiece.

Until I see what they have done I am going to reserve judgement on story and suckage. 

Okay, Uwe Boll might be a stretch.
