Michael Clarke Duncan as Darkseid in Man of Steel (2013)?

A new credit featuring Michael Clarke Duncan as Darkseid has appeared on IMDb’s Man of Steel (2013) page. If true, this is great news for the film for a few reasons. First, Darkseid is one of the most powerful foes to ever face Superman. A true super villain, Darkseid’s power can only be matched by the Man of Steel himself. Secondly, Michael Clarke Duncan has the perfect voice for the menacing Darkseid. His resent stint as Kilowog in DC’s Green Lantern (2011) film proves that.

With both Lex Luthor and General Zod already set to appear in the film, the addition of Darkseid would make sure Superman has plenty of enemies to tango with. General Zod will be played by Michael Shannon and Fringe actor Michael Cerveris is up for the role of Lex Luthor, although he is not confirmed yet.

    I think it can be pulled off; I mean TDKR pulled off Bane, Catwoman, and Talia Al Ghul. Batman Begins had Ra’s, Scarecrow, Zsasz, Joe Chill, Carmine Falcone. TDK had the Joker, Scarecrow, Two-Face, Sal Maroni, and a nod to the Riddler. If played well, MOS could totally pull it off.

    First film, Darkseid, Lex and Zod..A sequel with Lobo and Parasite would be awesome, then a trilogy finale with Doomsday.

    I’m guessing they will use at least one of the villains to set up a sequel (if not two). I like the additional characters because it brings some depth to the universe but battling three powerful villains in one movie would be a bit much.

    It sounds incredible. However, could that be too much for one film? How will they top that in the next film–if there is a next?

    I like the addition of Michael Clark Duncan. This truly might be a refreshing change of pace for the Superman films.
