Daniel Day-Lewis Also in Talks for "Superman"

Daniel Day-Lewis Also in Talks for "Superman"Submit Comment
Just recently it was reported that director Zack Snyder is considering Viggo Mortensen for the role of the villainous General Zod in the upcoming "Superman" reboot.

Moviehole has now learned that Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood) is in talks for an unspecified role in the movie. The site assumes that the role is also for Zod, which means that Snyder may have to decide between Mortensen and Day-Lewis.

As previously reported, Kevin Costner is up for the role of Jonathan Kent. But despite all this casting news, the actors have yet to meet with either Snyder or producer Christopher Nolan.

I'm I the Only one who thinks that Viggo and Daniel are perfect For the role of Brainiac. They already said that Zod was not going to be in the movie. Why is everyone stuck on Zod as the bad guy?

It'll never happen.

But if there is an actor more awesome than Viggo Mortensen - it's Daniel Day-Lewis.

f*ck. Two amazing choices.
Too bad they're signing aboard a future disaster.
Zacktion Synder + Superman = lots of slo-mo and true terrible.

Lol, you can't go wrong with Daniel Day Lewis. He could play Superman's idiot cousin and it would be the best performance of the movie and probably garner an Oscar nom. I hope they cast him as Zod though.

Daniel Day Lewis has to be the best villain actor of all time. If he is cast as Zod or Brainiac or whatever villain they want in this movie, he will easily overshadow Superman.
I love Viggo and all but there's no way I'm investing in him playing any type of villain is Lewis is vying for the same role.
Zod / Brainiac need a level of energy(especially Zod) that Lewis delivers time and time again.
Viggo would be good for Jor-El IMO.

If Lewis plays Zod then I will want to see the Zod character in this movie

Throw both Lewis and Mortensen in the film. They'd make a good team as Jor-El and Dru-Zod.

Lewis is far too good for this sh*t. Get Michael Cera and Frankie Muniz in drag instead.
