Here I was reading your entire post, agreeing with everything you'd written and thinking to myself "Taco is alright when he's not talking football" and then you throw in a geriatric 65 year old as the "ultimate villain charactor". Rickman is too old, IMO, to really be believable as a threat to the Man of Steel. Don't really have an answer as to whom would be better.
Also, from what I've read, it involves Brainiac & Luthor, not Zod.
I'd love to see a live action Doomsday.
