 My only reservation about Zod is that Bryan Singer was thinking the exact same direction after Superman Returns, which I thoroughly despise.  Knee jerk or not, you can't say the fanboy reaction that you're seeing doesn't have some validity to it.  Don't get me wrong, I have faith in Snyder and Nolan, just seems like they're taking a different road that goes in the same direction as the last awful journey.

Maybe Viggo should play Martian ManHunter

 I could actually see that, violator!

On the whole Zod appearances vs. Joker appearnaces thing...

The big difference is that in the comics, the Joker appears over and over again to fight Batman in new and different ways, whereas Zod was basically a one-time deal.  yeas, he has appeared more than once in Superman's comic history, but he's not a regular.

Supposed they made a Batman movie with Joe Chill as the villain.  Then they made a Batman TV series where Joe Chill is the villain.  Then a cartoon Batman with Joe Chill as the villain....

Zod had one basic role in the Superman mythos:  force Superman into a situation where he either has to kill, or let the world he loves be destroyed.  It really has been done to death.  You're not going to see multiple aspects of Zod, like you could with the Joker.  The Joker could threaten Batman in new and different ways, but Zod really only has one thing to offer.

I'm with those who would like to have seen one of the never-before-used villains like Prankster, Parasite, Metallo, or even Mxyzptlk!

But, I will still go see it and probably still enjoy it.  It is Superman, after all.

Right. And if this Superman movie bombs, it won't matter. They only seem to revolve around Lex and Zod. If they rebooted the movie again in ten years, they'd either have Zod or Lex. Fuck this.

Wow, okay I wanted someone different than Zod as well but I'm not ready to shit all over this yet. Zod is still a heavy weight. I can see Snyder going to town with him and Supes duking it out.

They also should have Luthor here too in some capacity, even if it's as Caveman I think suggested in the past and is only skeeming from the sidelines.

Still deep inside I'm hoping there are more villains than we know of so far. madmanic's idea sounds good to me. Have General Lane commission the building of Metallo, maybe even have Luthor be the builder as insurance against Superman and Zod. Lane was always pretty distrusting of Superman or any super being so it would make sense

@SarcasticCaveman I agree with Clancy Brown...I have always been a huge fan of his and if anyone questions his acting chops or his ability to personify pure evil, then they have not watched Carnivale....speaking of which....HBO give us the final 4 seasons of Carnivale you bastards!!!!!

SarcasticCaveman 4/11/2011 10:53:24 AM

 Carnivale was the SH*T, fatpantz!  AWESOME show.  Wish they would at least make a TV or theatrical movie to give the story a little closure.

And the villian is...who cares?  It's still a Superman movie and therefor not interesting!

Interesting enough to post a comment though, and more interesting than the comment you posted!
