Michael Shannon to play Superman: Man of Steel Villain as General Zod

Michael Shannon Gets Villainous For Superman

Superman: Man of Steel has a villain. Michael Shannon will play General Zod in Zach Snyder’s upcoming reboot opposite Henry Cavill as the titular hero. Zach said, “Zod is not only one of Superman’s most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don’t. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role.” You may recognise Michael from his Oscar-nominated role in Revolutionary Road and as one of the stars of Boardwalk Empire. Are you happy with the villain they’ve picked for the new movie?
