Hey gang! Word on the street is that Viggo Mortensen could possibly end up playing the main villain in Zack Snyder's Superman reboot! According to inside sources, producer Christopher Nolan and Snyder consider the actor a "person of interest", and he's at the top of their list to play General freakin' Zod, one of the classic supervillains in the Superman franchise, but they haven't had any official disscussions with the actor yet.
He's not the only one being considered for the role, but he along with Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent are the two actors most seriously talked about. Snyder is currently meeting with actors for not only the role of Zod and Kent--he is auditioning three female parts well.
Mortensen is currently in negotiations to play the Huntsman in Universal Picture's live-action version of Snow White. If that doesn't work out, it's more likely for him to get the villainous Superman gig. But even if he does get it, maybe he will be able to do both.
I would absolutely love to see Mortenson take on the role of General Zod! That would take this Superman reboot to a whole new level of awesomeness!
What do you all think about Mortensen possibly playing General Zod in the film?
