Mortensen though was mostly likely to turn the role down due to his attachment to Snow White and the Huntsman at Universal. But in the interview, Snyder didn’t mention that, instead he said to LR “Viggo is not going to be in the movie let’s say that right now.”
This though, brings in another issue; is Zod even in the movie? Once Sucker Punch opens on Friday, hopefully Snyder will be able to work on Superman post-production. That’s probably when the real Superman news will start coming out.
