MAN OF STEEL: Christopher Meloni To Join the Cast [Updated]

Just last week, we brought you the news about Julia Ormond (My Week with Marilyn) being in talks to play Kal-El’s Kryptonian mother, Lara in Warner Bros. Pictures forthcoming Superman reboot, directed by Zack Snyder (Sucker Punch, Watchmen), entitled Man of Steel.

Now, Deadline reports that Christopher Meloni, who recently left the NBC series, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit after almost 12 years, is now in negotiations for a yet-to-be-named, “major role” in the big screen reboot of the big, blue boyscout.


Meloni himself told NYMag that he will be playing a General in the movie, when they pressed him for more information he said, “I can’t tell you, or I’d have to kill you.”

Man of Steel, directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe and Julia Ormond is slated to hit theaters in 2012.
