Man Of Steel (2013): Christopher Meloni is Colonel Hardy

Body

picWell, I did mention that Christopher Meloni looked just a bit too young to play General Lane, father to Lois Lane (Amy Adams), in the new Superman reboot, the Man Of Steel.

With the first image of Henry Cavill as Superman from Warner Bros, comes an official press release revealing just what role Christopher Meloni is going to play - Colonel Hardy.

I believe this is a new character, and Meloni joins Harry Lennix who plays General Swanick.

See below for more.

Stay tuned to Cosmic Book News as more on the Man Of Steel develops.
