Zack Snyder’s new Superman movie finally has a villain.
Michael Shannon will play Zod in their new Superman film, to be titled Man of Steel.
You may remember Shannon for his supporting role in Revolutionary Road. He also starred in The Runaways as band manager opposite Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning.
Shannon will have to live up to Terrence Stamp unforgettable performance, which is a difficult task for Shannon. Zod, like Superman, is from Krypton, meaning he also has the same powers. Zod was imprisoned in a place called “The Phantom Zone” by Kal-El’s father before the explosion of Krypton, only to escape and end up on Earth where he sets out to conquer and rule.
Shannon will be joining Henry Cavill, already cast as Clark Kent, and Amy Adams, already cast as Lois Lane.
Zod is a great character and Michael Shannon will be good, but will Shannon be able to live up for the role? Considering also that Zod Superman’s most famous villain.
