Superman: Man of Steel Villain Cast

Zack Snyder has chosen his villain for the upcoming Superman reboot entitled Man of Steel. Many people had guessed but Snyder has gone with General Zod as Superman’s nemesis in the sequel. Personally, I like the idea of Zod as the baddie. Lex Luthor had gotten a little played out as the Superman baddie in the last Superman movies. And if the movie succeed they can move forward with Lex as the baddie then. Maybe even setup Lex for the next movie in this film by having him watch the battle between Supes and Zod and in turn become fascinated by Superman.
My dream was to see Callum Blue get the role of General Zod. He was fantastic on Smallville as Major Zod and I think he would have the presence to pull of General Zod on the big screen. Yes, I know that was a pipe dream there is no way that a series regular from Smallville will get a big role in the new movie.
Snyder chose Michael Shannon to play the part of Zod. If you’ve seen Boardwalk Empire you are no doubt familiar with his role as Agent Nelson Van Alden. Needless to say Shannon has the chops to play a stone cold psycho. I think he should do well as Zod, and to be honest this is just another reason for me to feel excited about the reboot.
Snyder has put together a solid cast. The cast includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent. The only question mark in my book is Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman. I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt and not rush to judgement.
