Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Zack Snyder says General Zod will not be in his film.

"It's a different story. I won't say there's a break from the canon or anything like that, but there is definitely an approach that makes you go, 'Okay, that's a way to get at it.' [David Goyer] is very respectful of the canon and stuff like that. It has its roots in the canon and again, like I say, it has a point of view about who he is. I'm being cryptic, I know, but it's the best I can do."
On specifically of Zod's involvement:

"Just wrong! The internet has no idea what's going on."
I gotta tell you... when I read Snyder saying "wrong!", it reminded me of Lex Luthor screaming "Wrong!" in Superman Returns.

Thank God, maybe we'll get a nice Brainiac story. Or Darkseid, or maybe Manchester Black.

Eric Bana or Gerard Butler could have been Zod. Oh well.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I don't see Nolan and Goyer writing a script based around Mxy...I think he would be just too hard a character to try and explain in a realistic universe. "Smallville" did a interesting take on the character and as far as we know that version is still around locked away in one of Lex's metahuman projects.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Intergang would kind of be cool. We know from the two Batman films that Nolan loves the mob and Intergang is kind of like the Metropolis mob. I could see Morgan Edge as the villain maybe setting up the return of Lex for another movie. I know that will please all the "I'm sick of Lex" people.

I want Brainiac, the robotic computer version from Superman the animated series, to be the Big Bad.
My guess is the film will have three major villains: Lex Luthor, Brainiac and Zod.
Does it really have to have Luthor, again?

Intergang would set up Darkseid more than Lex. In the Bruce Timm cartoon Intergang was just a front/reconnaissance for Darkseid's forces prior to an all-out invasion.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

^ I disagree once again you're putting too much regard into various interpretations of stories, it maybe wouldn't have set up Lex (i was thinking more of a rival for Edge and their feud causing problems for Supes) but it doesn't mean that it would set up Darkseid either. Intergang can be it's own entity without setting up anyting.

Well, perhaps. But it would be nice if Superman fought a big cosmic enemy that wasn't General Zod.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I think Darkseid would be a Justice League style enemy in terms of a movie villain...someone so powerful and dangerous that only a band of the Earth's greatest heroes can defeat him.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

There may be no villain at all. The move could just be Superman figuring out he can't just "fix" world's problems, but instead must focus on saving people, as many s possible, for the rest of his long life.
