Viggo Mortensen could be Zod in Superman Reboot

Viggo Mortensen could be Zod in Superman Reboot

How cool that Argentina raised Viggo Mortensen could be in the new Superman Reboot? The Spanish speaking actor, poet, musician, photographer and painter is being pursued by producer Christopher Nolan and director Zack Snyder to play the main villain, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Viggo Mortensen, known for The Lord of the Rings trilogy and who is in discussions for Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman, is said to be at the top of the list to play General Zod, the evil and super-powered scientist first introduced in Superman II from 1980 played by Terrence Stamp. The question is now which role will Mortensen want to do more?

The actor who made the  Spanish speaking film ‘Alatriste’ is said to be just a “person of interest,” much like Kevin Costner is for the role of Jonathan Kent. The shot of both of them getting their respective gigs is pretty solid.

Director Zack Snyder is in the midst of meeting various actors for the Zod and Kent roles and three female parts well. There is no secret that whoever lands these sough after roles will be having a very nice life for the next ten years as Superman is looking to become a WB franchise for the ages.

Check out our interview we did with Viggo for his movie ‘Good’ a few years ago: click here.

Below is the character of Zod that Mortensen might play soon. Terrence Stamp originated the role in 1980 for Superman II.

Javier Bardem will play the villain in ‘Wall Street 2’

Javier Bardem will play the villain in 'Wall Street 2'

Rumor has it, Javier Bardem will be taking on the villain role of “Wall Street 2“. According to Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood Daily, this 40-year-old actor has been lined up to play a stock-shorting worldwide hedge fund manager whom Shia LaBeouf‘s character suspects to be responsible for the death of his mentor.

If Bardem is indeed cast to play the antagonist, he will be sharing screen with Michael Douglas, who will reprise his Academy Award-winning role as Gordon Gekko, and LaBeouf, who Finke confirmed to have set to co-star in the movie despite earlier report claiming that the young actor was in negotiation. So far, there are no words from Bardem’s camp regarding the casting speculation.

More about the sequel itself, Finke reported that the movie is expected to start its principal photography on August 10 with the release plan for February 2010. It allegedly will begin 21 years after the end of the first movie and Gordon Gekko has finished serving his prison sentence. This time, the story revolves around LaBeouf’s character who is engaged to Gekko’s estranged daughter.

When LaBeouf’s mentor unexpectedly kills himself, LaBeouf suspects that Bardem’s character has something to do with it. Seeking for revenge, he then asks Gekko, who tries to mend his relationship with his daughter, for help.

Javier Bardem is an Academy Award recipient for his portrayal of hitman Anton Chigurh in “No Country for Old Men“. This Spanish actor has starred in several English-language feature films, including “Collateral“, “Love in the Time of Cholera” and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona“.
