Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN
If this first chapter of a new Superman on-screen mythology is going to tie into Superman's origins or history at all, it makes sense for the first film to feature General Zod, who has connections to Krypton and Superman's past.
So does Brainiac (at least in certain interpretations).
