The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Zack Snyder has an actor in mind for General Zod and its Viggo Mortensen. Viggo is an interesting choice and certainly not who I would expect to see in the role of the General.
Frankly I am still quite dissapointed that Zack Snyder is choosing to re-introduce villains that we saw in the 1980’s Superman 2 Movie. As was pointed out by our readers you would all prefer to see a different villain like Darkseid or Doomsday over General Zod and his gang of intergalactic thugs.

Its worth noting that nobody has approached Viggo Mortensen for the role they are just saying they want him for the role. I am sure Viggo would take it though if it was offered.
In earlier news we told you that Kevin Costner is up for the role of Poppa Kent . General Zod you will recall has the same powers as Superman and was portrayed by Terrence Stamp quite well in Superman 2
