Viggo Mortensen Being Courted by "Superman"

The new "Superman" film could possibly wind up having a pretty impressive all-star cast according to rumors floating around Hollywood. The latest actor being attached to the film is Viggo Mortensen, who may be a person of interest for the role of General Zod.

Zack Snyder had previously stated that the character of General Zod wouldn't be present in his film, but sources say that he and producer Christopher Nolan are currently looking into snagging Mortensen for the role. Another possibility for the cast lineup is Kevin Costner, who would play Pa Kent. The two actors are said to be at the top of the lists for the roles.

Casting for Lois Lane is underway as well as for Ursa, General Zod's partner in crime. Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike are said to be the front-runners for that role.
