Re: The Official Michael Shannon IS General Zod - Part 3
Exactly. Because it's an origin and because I sense they're gonna focus on Clark/Supes A LOT, I guess zod will become a public enemy on Krypton, but will keep a low profile on Earth at first, trying to use Kal-El. It's deep enough and easy enough to explain at the same time. So it's serviceable. If they wanted to focus more on Zod (not more than on Kal-El), however, the misunderstood extremist Zod who gets hurt both on Krypton and on Earth would be great.
And by misunderstood I don't mean innocent. Just not someone whose mind is set on world domination.
