Meloni Takes On
Man Of Steel

Christopher Meloni is the latest addition to Zack Snyder's remake of Superman. Will he be playing Lex Luthor as Internet rumors had buzzed about? Read on to find out.

Christopher MeloniChristopher Meloni may have turned in his Law & Order: SVU badge but it's not stopping him from joining some bad-ass projects. He recently confirmed he's been cast in Zack Snyder's remake of Superman.

Christopher Meloni revealed to New York Magazine's Vulture Blog he will be taking on the part of a general but that's all the juicy details he'll be discussing.

Christopher Meloni's lips are staying sealed, telling the Vulture Blog, "I can't tell you, or I'd have to kill you."

His casting as a general may have some fans scratching their heads as many had speculated he'd take on the villain of Lex Luthor. That would have been a good match, but a general is cool too!

Now the guessing game will begin as to which general Christopher Meloni will play. It's already known that General Zod will be played by Boardwalk Empire's Michael Shannon.

Christopher Meloni is joining a stellar Superman cast that already includes Henry Cavill in the title role of Superman (aka Clark Kent), Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent.

The fabulous Russell Crowe is allegedly in talks to finalize a deal that would have him portraying Jor-El, Superman's biological father.

What do you think of Christopher Meloni's addition to the Superman cast?

At first guess I would say Chris will be playing General Sam Lane, but since Sam is the father of Lois, the relative ages will be pretty messed up. I sure wish Chris was playing Lex...

Between Russell Crowe and Christopher Meloni, this Superman could be the most intense Man of Steel movie yet, and I don't think I even need to see Superman himself on the screen! Awesome, completely and utterly awesome ... I cannot wait to see this movie, if only to see two of the finest actors on both the silver screen and the TV screen. This is fantastic news, and a great comfort to Chris' fans, after the heartbreak of his departure from SVU. Wolf, eat your heart out. You lost half of the incomparable team of Benson and Stabler, and it was all your fault. Now, Chris Meloni will finally get the recognition he deserves. This is truly Poetic Justice.
