He was fantastic.
I hadn't thought of that!
Dr.Manhattan is all around probably a pretty good example of how far Snyder is willing to go to stick to the source.
Michael Shannon was a casting choice that I thought was pitch perfect, even if his Zod wasn't quite as intense as I had expected from him.
