http://Twitter.com/ClevverMovies - Follow Us! Now that Zack Snyder and Chris Nolan have found their Superman -- the all important hunt for the villain is under way. We've got the details on who...

Both guys are great, but has anyone played a more evil guy than Daniel Day Lewis? Gangs Of New York? There Will Be Blood?

I like Viggo better... but he's not ugly enough.

I made a video kinda supporting Viggo as Zod... I'm not too familiar with Day-Lewis' work, but shave his head and make him Lex if anything. -rave

Though I'm a bit skeptical about Henry Cavill being cast as Superman, these two guys would be good fits for Zod (if he is the villain in this film).

Viggo Mortensen is the lesser known Daniel Day-Lewis. He's very much the chameleon himself. Michael Shannon is great, but pales before these two

I don't care who they pick, really. This Superman movie is starting to sound like the same old thing again. Now, if they ever decide to make a Super-Cutegirl movie then they should definitely pick Chelsea Cannell. Awhoooo!

Those are two ridiculously GOOD actors (Viggo SHOULD obviously play Roland in SK's the Dark Tower)....but call me crazy, but i would prefer an english accent for the part of Zod...Terence Stamp (from Superman II) was the best Zod that there will probably ever be! I don't see the point in reusing the villians and plots of the previous live action films no more lex! I sure would like to see a "NEW' superman movie with Brainiac, Bizaro, or Darkside providing a real challenge to the Man Of Steel!

They are both perfect for the role of villians, but for the role of general/militar it's Daniel the best.

Out of these choces I'd go with Daniel Day Lewis

Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the best actors out there and am sure he would knock it out of the park.

personally, why would you pick a villian thats already been featured? what about brainiac, metallo or parasite? i would love to see a live action verison of the doomsday saga, but think it would better as a sequel to this one.

Viggo Mortensen doesn't know how to turn in a bad performance, even when he's handed a turd like "The Road". He'd be my pick.

@ditbot Try to see him as a lucifer in "The Prophecy".

Daniel Day-Lewis simply because he can pull it off so well :L

Good luck trying to get Daniel Day Lewis. God knows what his immersion for that film would require.

Tough one, I'd love to see either of those actors in the role. Daniel D is fantastic all around and plays great villains, but a part of me wants to see what Viggo would do with that sort of role since he is such a versatile actor as well. If you get either of these two as Zod, the screenwriters and Brandon Routh will have to step it up a couple notches, because that be a shame to drop the ball with so much going for them(Kevin Spacey is a great actor but they didn't utilize him enough as Lex.)

I can totally see Daniel Day-Lewis saying "KNELL BEFORE ZOD".

NO Gary Oldman He's always brilliant when he's playing a Villain.

General Zod?? AGAIN?? Doomsday! please.

honestly the internet is not a good place for information lol a lot of people just like to throw rumors out. they will announce when they find the rest of the cast.

Viggo Mortensen played lucifer, so i guess he might be the perfect villain.
Report spam or abuse
They need to do a different villian. They really mess up Superman! they keep going around and around. It's a good thing i like Batman better any way, i would be upset.

Daniel Day-Lewis is too good for superman

the one with the croket nose.

@sXeblues If your not familiar with Day Lewis' work then I would suggest seeing "Gangs of New York" it's a fantastic movie. :)

Viggo has been really good in anything I've seen him in. But I've never seen him as a villain. Everybody knows Daniel can play a badass villain.

both of them dislike this video now ...... Shannon as ZOD !

Daniel Day-Lewis is the best choice
