Rumoured to become the Zod he was born to be!
Sources of The Hollywood Reporter are saying that Viggo Mortensen is at the top of Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan’s list of actors to play none other than General Zod in the Superman reboot reboot.It’s a pretty weak rumour as the sources say that no talks have taken place between Mortensen and Nolan/Snyder and time constraints may be a problem since he is currently in negotiations for a role in Snow White and The Huntsman. However, many actors would grab at the chance to appear in what will be such a high profile film.
I don’t know much about General Zod outside Superman II, but Mortensen is a fine actor so I think he would be able to pull the role off. That being said, as far as I know, it would be the first time he has played a true villain. As for Zod, there is one other man who can pull it off. KNEEL!!!!
