Yeah I was just thinking of it in the same vein as the Emperor & Vader and it didn't bother me as much. I'm fickle that way. The other day I thought it was foolish, today not so much to have an older Zod. I don't care for Rickman and think you give him too much credit as a villain but that relates more to casting than the direction of the character. Rickman just seems incredibly gay to me and I dislike everything about him. Maybe the characteristics that make him great to you are also those that make him suck to me but part of it is that I don't like the typecast sorts for roles. I like unconventional thinking for casting. There's obviously exceptions but generally if you give me a villain I like and feel conflicted on some level about disliking, then I'm more likely to appreciate the film.
