Also, from what I've read, it involves Brainiac & Luthor, not Zod.
I'd love to see a live action Doomsday.
Totally disagree. Anyone who doubts Alan Rickman is a fool (with due respect to the fools who doubt Alan Rickman). And General Zod would be an older man in his 50s or 60s who also experiences the superhuman boost that Clark Kent gets from the weaker gravity of earth and the intensity of the yellow sun. His appearance in age would make little difference in his superior physical abilities.
Ehyeh asher ehyeh.
