Director Zack Snyder has spent the past week touting his "girls in an insane asylum" fantasy adventure Sucker Punch, and tiny tidbits of Superman reboot information have slithered out of that. The latest rumor finds Carlos and The Bourne Ultimatum baddie Édgar Ramírez being eyed for an unspecified villain role in the next Man of Steel adventure.
For a while, it was http://movieweb.com/superman-wants-viggo-mortensen-as-general-zod/believed that Viggo Mortensen was up for the role of Zod. But Zack Snyder has been vigorously shaking his head 'no' at that notion when directly asked if the The Lord of the Rings star would be trading punches with already cast Henry Cavill. Many speculate that Zod will, for sure, be the villain of this new Superman. But Zod has never been confirmed as the villain, with Snyder firmly stating that his Clark Kent would not have any ties to those who've come before him on the big screen, or on television.
It is not known at this point who Édgar Ramírez will be playing if he is asked to join the project. He is only 'supposedly' being consider at this point. The actor is currently working for Warner Bros. (home of Superman until at least 2012). He just started shooting his role as Zues' godly son Ares in the sequel Clash of the Titans 2 (formerly known as Wrath of the Titans).
