Michael Shannon is an impressive casting choice for Zod. It is going to be interesting to see how they write him in this movie since the comics have retconned Zod into the Donner version during Geoff Johns Action Comics run.
Bald guy in a paramilitary cap is out then?

Why?
I'm just fed up wiith the character after watching her be badly written for eight years of Smallville. If I never see her again in a Superman movie, it will be too soon.

Indeed, I'd go as far as to say that Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as the Kents is inspired.
It still weirds me out that Diane Lane who plays Martha Kent is only ten years older than Amy Adams. Does this mean that in the movie Martha will be ten years older than Lois?

I doubt Lana will be in this movie...perhaps we'll get a reference to her or something.

I'm still not sure of Amy Adams as Lois will be good. She seems too nice to be an tough reporter. It feels like Adams would be better as a Disney Princess or someone in a Muppets movie instead of being in Superman.

I haven't got that far in those voluminous tomes yet, but I like how the New Krypton Zod was apparently slightly less of a Space Hitler.

It's pretty preposterously easy to be at odds with Superman, because of his insane black-and-white morality and morally questionable refusal to intervene in political issues. You don't need a Space Hitler to get on his bad side. A Space Churchill more than suffice.

Makes sense to me. Lois should always be somewhat older than Clark. Ten to fifteen years is perhaps pushing it, but as far as I can recall she's always been portrayed as very well-established before he even shows up in Metropolis. I think a five to eight year age gap is totally reasonable, and almost unavoidable. Of course, you'd never know it because she's routinely drawn, as all comic book women are, as between the ages of 18 and 25.

Weirdly, that's my favorite Zod. That is, with the modifications I make in my head so that he doesn't look completely ridiculous, i.e. dressing like a 1930s European dictator despite the fact he's from another planet and, like, what, a thousand years old or something?

Christian Bale was once a singing and dancing newsboy in a Disney film. They never should have cast him as Batman based on that.

^^ There were rumors that they were going to use the Russian dictator version of Zod when he was first cast.

@Dream you should see Amy Adams in "Doubt" then or "Sunshine Cleaning". Or better yet "The Fighter".

The synopsis sounds pretty accurate.

The synopsis is incredibly vague. Well at least the synopsis doesn't say "Superman stalks Lois for 2 hours then lifts an island while someone else does something more heroic than him".

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

Again the article with the synopsis quotes comicbookmovies which in turn says it is casting call info for Vancouver Island (they'll be shooting Autumn Frost starting next summer) and the article does indeed say it that is vague so we still do not have an OFFICIALLY released WB/DC Ent "Man of Steel" plot synopsis. I just thought the article was interesting enough to post anyways.

Just by loose appearance and associates. The execution of the character is very different, I feel.

Smallville wasn't a Superman show; it was some kind of fungus.
