Well this is a far cry from Benicio del Toro!
Although it was rumored that Edgar Ramirez would be taking the actor's place after he turned down the role of the main villain in the upcoming Star Trek 2, it's been announced that instead, it will be Benedict Cumberbatch, best known for his starring part in the BBC Sherlock series!

More EXCELLENT additions to the cast!
Sources close to Zack Snyder's production of Superman have revealed that both character actor Michael Shannon and Edgar Ramirez are being considered for unknown villainous roles in the revamp!
Both Lex Luthor and General Zod are being thrown around as this version's new set of baddies, so we're anxious to hear if they'll be taking on those roles, or if this version will be going in a different direction!
What do U think?? What villains do you want to see in the Superman reboot??
