You can't judge a person by them being a dick a couple of times, I mean, who KNOWS what happened to them that day right?

But there is something about Shannon that seems like he's of a disinterested, smart alecky dickwad. I just SEEMS that way. I guess he's grown tired of all the fake ass people smoochin' his bum in interviews and whatnot, but I gotta say, if I was in a position to play Zod no matter how many interviews I wound up doing it'd be extremely difficult for anyone to get ANYTHING out of me other than a jaw dropping, drooling **** eating grin from ear to ear and stuttering out any answers to questions I was asked........I MEAN HE'S PLAYING THIS AWESOME CHARACTER IN A SUPERMAN MOVIE!!! He just seems like he doesn't give a flying **** lol

Either way, from the trailer, and pics I have seen of him, he is KILLIN' it as General Zod. I can't wait to see him go toe to toe with the Man of Steel!!!

I've watched a lot of his interviews, he doesn't seem like a dick to me. He's kind of thoughtful really, he seems to take time to process the questions and answer them honestly without fluff. There was this one question about what he thought of Cavill as Superman so far, and he kind of just shrugged and said he's only had one scene with him so far in the shoot, that he can't give a good answer yet. And that Christopher Reeve will always have a place in his heart. It would be easy for someone to say "Oh Cavill is amazing" but it wouldn't be accurate or honest at that point. He's probably not as attuned to the comic books as some of us, but he does seem pretty excited by the idea of playing a general.
