Just what role?
Most think Lewis to be up for the same role as Mortensen, namely Zod.
Seeing how both actors are presently almost signed on to other films, (Mortensen with Snow White and Lewis with Abraham Lincoln), it's a safe guess that Snyder may be eyeing these two for the same role.
However, I suppose there is always a chance that Daniel Day Lewis could be up for a different role - maybe as a Luthor?
As it stands, it's all rumor right now.
If it comes down to Mortesen or Lewis to play General Zod, who would you prefer?
