    I was mostly making a joke about Movie Luthor's obsession with land. :p

    Though in fact Lex's science angle was played up in the ill-received Superman IV.

    I hope Michael Shannon turns out to be Lex Luthor. I think he'd make an incredible Lex.

    I was actually going to use this as an example of how they should handle Luthor in the next movie.

    He looks more like the Prankster to me.

    He'd be great as Lex or a Zod-type character, or Brainiac. Take your pic.

    Of course, ideally with that chin he'd be Judge Dredd.

    ^ Yeah the comics basically turned Sam Lane into Thunderbolt Ross didn't they? Taking Sam's dislike of Superman and turning it into full on hatred of aliens in general and making him a xenophobe, after he his heroic sacrifice in Our Worlds at War. Oh well.

    Viggo Mortensen has dropped out of Snow White and The Huntsman (he would have played the Huntsman) which re-energizes speculation that he might veer towards Zack Snyder's Superman for the villainous role he was rumored for a few weeks ago.

    Nothing would make me happier to see Mortensen as Zod!

    Agreed. Mortensen as Zod sounds really cool. I hope it happens.

    The new Superman production is coming to Plano, Illinois! That's just west of Chicago, where they shot the first two Batman movies. Looks like I'll be able to stalk the new Superman film as well. :D
