Christopher Meloni Reveals Man Of Steel Role Details And His Filming Dates!

Christopher Meloni Reveals <i>Man Of Steel</i> Role Details And His Filming Dates!

Chris Meloni, who we learned yesterday signed on for an unknown role in Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel has now revealed details and may not be Lex Luthor, like many speculated.



News broke yesterday that Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actor Christopher Meloni was rounding out the cast of Zack Snyder's much-anticipated Superman reboot, Man Of Steel. While details on the role were undisclosed, chatting recently with Vulture, the actor has now revealed somewhat who he'll portray.

When Vulture caught up with the now ex-Law & Order: SVU star at the Public Theater Gala earlier this week, he told us he'd be instead playing a general in the movie. But when we pressed for more information about the role, he said, "I can't tell you, or I'd have to kill you." We did manage to learn that he starts filming at the end of August and he'll shoot his part over the course of five months in locations including Chicago, Vancouver, and Edwards Air Force Base.


If the role is in fact "major", like previous reports suggested, it's possible this "General" could be General Sam Lane, father of Lois Lane, which actress Amy Adams will portray. If true, who do you think?


Man Of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Julia Ormond and Russell Crowe, reportedly commences production next month, and is slated for theaters Mid-December 2012!
