I think Viggo is a great actor. It would be interesting to see him get a villain role in a movie like this. I almost doubt this being true, but it could indeed be interesting if it does prove to be true.

Has he ever played a villain before in a film? He doesn't seem the type.

JL3157d ago

Yea. He's played the biggest villain of them all: Satan. He played the role of Lucifer in the movie The Prophecy. He did a good job with it too. He can definitely bring that sinister aura when needed.

In Eastern Promises he also played a "villain". Though it was more of a "villain who gains a conscience" type role. And, not necessarily a villain, but he did play the "bad guy" type in GI Jane.

It would totally be awesome! Kinda show that WB is at least putting faith into a Superman movie for once.

Hmmmm, I can see him as a potential villain. But, I don't see him as the more notable villains in Superman.

Perfect...I think this would be absolutely fricking perfect. He could totally pull this off. He's got that stiff and pompous demeanor down that could make Zod incredibly fun to see. I would love this.

I agree. He could pull off Zod pretty well. I just enjoy seeing Viggo in anything really.
