When Chris Meloni was announced for “Superman” everyone thought he would be playing Lex Luthor or Perry White. Turns out he won’t be playing either of them. Vulture caught up with Chris himself and he revealed that he will be playing a military General but he couldn’t get into details about the character.
More on it, here.
Noticing that Chris will be playing a military General, my wild guess is that he’s going to be playing, General Sam Lane. It’s the only other General I can think of in the Superman franchise. Michael Shannon already has General Zod.
