Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

I am happy they won't use the line. It was a great line in Superman II. But its taken over the whole character to become a cliche. For Zod to work in this film Michael Shannon is going to have to be his own version. If Lex can be played in different ways so can Zod.

The problem is Terence Stamp defined a character who was just one name in a group of interchangeable criminals in Phantom Zone. Every time Zod has appeared since than, in comics or Smallville, has been dependent on the memory of how Terrence Stamp 's great performance made a stock villain very cool. Not really adding anything new. Using that line would get a fanboy cheer because.... Hey remember Superman II....
