Michael Shannon Also Considered for "Superman" Villain RoleSubmit Comment
After Viggo Mortensen was rumored to play General Zod in the upcoming "Superman" reboot, director Zack Snyder revealed that the actor will not appear in the movie.

Now that Mortensen is out, LatinoReview then learned that Edgar Ramirez (The Bourne Ultimatum) is being considered for the villain role. The site, however, did not specify which villain he may end up playing.

Now comes word from Deadline that Warner Bros and Snyder have expressed interest in Michael Shannon (Bug) to play the villain. Once again, it is not specified which role he's being considered for.

Michael Shannon is one of the most underrated actors around at the moment.

Forget these stupid reboots. I came across this recently. This should be this next big trilogy with T-formers ending this summer.

This guy could play pretty much any of superman's villains. He even looks a bit like Mongul.

Michael Shannon is a fantastic yet underrated actor and deserves to be looked at more. They should give him this role

Yeah, saw this guy in Bug, and yeah good actor but his face gives me the creeps. Looks like he should be doing midget snuff porn with a Super 8 or something.

Is it just me, or does Michael Shannon look like he's got a Marty Feldman sleepy eye in that photo ?

That or he f*cking looks like that flat faced actor that played the tech guy on Alias that was always sniffing the panties of Sydney during the entire series, trying to suck up to Sydney's dad so he can get into her panties.

They look so much alike, it's f*cking creepy.

The dude looks like steve o's cousin or a peeping tom but that's a good thing since all the other actors look like abercrombie material or like girls with a penis example glittery vampire,taters,ryan phillippe.

He'll have no problem playing his parts
