Michael Shannon Cast as General Zod in SUPERMAN Reboot MAN OF STEEL
by Brendan Bettinger Posted: April 10th, 2011
Viggo Mortensen was never able to find the right hole in his schedule to play General Zod in the upcoming Superman reboot, now officially titled Man of Steel. Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, however, landed on a fantastic alternative: Michael Shannon. Shannon was rumored for an unspecified villain role last month — the studios have announced today he will play Zod. Director Zack Snyder remarked,
“Zod is not only one of Superman’s most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don’t. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role.”
I could not agree more. Henry Cavill will star as Clark Kent/Superman. The supporting cast includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent. Read the official announcement after the jump.
Teaser Trailer for THE WOMAN IN BLACK Starring Daniel Radcliffe
by Adam Chitwood Posted: April 10th, 2011
The teaser trailer for the ghost thriller The Woman in Black has gone online. Starring Daniel Radcliffe, the film is based on the classic ghost story by Susan Hill that centers on a young lawyer visiting a remote English town that, naturally, holds many ghostly secrets. The trailer is very much a teaser, and doesn’t really give much of the plot away, but I’m liking the air of creepiness and general unease that it suggests.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser for yourself. The Woman in Black hits theaters in the UK on February 10th, 2012 with a US release date currently unknown.
