Viggo Mortensen To Play General Zod In Superman Reboot?

Now we’re fucking talking. Apparently Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder’s desire man to play General Zod is none other than Viggo fucking Mortensen. While we’ve heard that both Lindsay Lohan and Kevin Costner have been up for parts, this is the first time that I’ve gotten my manjuices a-fluctuating about a particular casting rumor.

The kicker though? They haven’t even spoken to the dude yet.


In the Hollywood Reporter story they equate Mortensen to Kevin Costner, whoearlier this week was rumored to be up for the role of Jonathan Kent, meaning both actors are up for the roles but nothing is locked in yet. In fact, according to the Reporter’s sources, there haven’t even been talks yet. Each actor just remains “a person of interest.”

Well, let their whimsy be fucking reality.

Thoughts? I’d love this.
