Because Russell Crowe can’t be in any movies where he doesn’t get to hit someone, it looks like his version of Jor-El won’t be a peace-loving, rational scientist, but a badass Kryptionian ass-kicker looking to stomp a mud-hole in General Zod before Krypton’s destruction. Here are some tweets that Crowe sent out on his Twitter account regarding the Jor-El ass-kickery in Zack Snyder’s Superman: The Man of Steel.

15km bike ride,umpteen hours fighting Michael Shannon. (General Zod) He’s very hard to put down.

@alanthomasdoyle Stay around for the Saturday. That really is the only day I can guarantee you any time . I’m trying to save a planet here.

@alanthomasdoyle Alas, I’m no superhero.Just related to one.

So far, Man of Steel has a chiseled British guy playing Superman in a knobby, rubbery costume; a red-headed Lois Lane played by an actress ten years older than the actor playing Superman; a black Perry White (Laurence Fishburne);  a yet-to-be-revealed CGI costume for General Zod; and now a Jor-El that gets into fisticuffs. Based on this information, I’m pretty sure Snyder is going to cast an Asian to play a Jimmy Olsen who is secretly a ninja that hides throwing stars in his camera.
