Edgar Ramirez to play Villain in Superman: Man of Steel (2012)?


picThe Zack Snyder directed Superman seems to be the hot ticket item of the week.

Previously, Snyder shot down rumors of actor Viggo Mortensen appearing in his reboot of the Man of Steel.

Now, word comes from Latino Review that Edgar Ramirez may be up for the role of a villain.

They note, not much is known in regards to what role, whether or not the actor has even auditioned, or if his name is just being tossed around.

So file this under "rumor" - but Ramirez is currently working under the Warner Bros. banner with the Wrath of the Titans -- so there is that.
