Zack Snyder's new Superman film Man Of Steel has no doubt inherited that brand of Christopher Nolan secretiveness that has kept fiends itching for news about The Dark Knight Rises. So, it should come as no surprise that details of Harry Lennix's just-announced involvement in Man Of Steel are miniscule.

Variety reports that the veteran character actor, most known for his work on 24, will bring his on-screen military experience to the role of Sgt. Stanwick. For now, that's all we know, but it is known that he will play a high-ranking officer who may or may not join the military command that will be overseen by now-former Law & Order: SVU star Christopher Meloni.

Presumably, if Lennix does enlist, they'll be battling a more powerful, Kryptonian militia man in the form of Michael Shannon's General Zod. Man of Steel's cast includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Antje Traue as Zod's henchwoman Faora, Russell Crowe, Julia Ormond, Kevin Costner, and Diane Lane as Supe's parental figures.

Production is set to begin this August in Vancouver, British Columbia.
