And now, Mark Strong has hinted that the role may be his.

A few weeks ago, we got a look at some of the concept art from Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' and got a glimpse at many wild variations of Superman's iconic costume. Today, more art has emerged and this time, it's for Superman's nemesis in the film, General Zod.

In something of an off-hand comment, Russell Crowe mentioned on Twitter that he's been receiving lots of questions regarding a 'Man of Steel' prequel, one that would be set entirely on Krypton and focus on his character, Jor-El. He then mentioned he's very open to the idea, but are you?
