Default Re: The Official Michael Shannon IS General Zod - Part 3

Airwings argument might be more convincing with 1) a description of how Zod should look and why, and 2) pictures demonstrating that Shannon's Zod looks like Zod from Smallville.

But given Zod's varying appearance in the comics, 1) would likely only be a subjective opinion with no grounding, and I don't believe 2) exists.

Yeah, I don't get this whole entitlement thing. "You HAVE to respect my opinion." No. You have the right to have an opinion, and I respect that. But your opinion isn't entitled to any respect just ipso facto, without any support or argumentation or extended discussion. Opinions have to merit respect. They don't get it just because they are an opinion.

He looks nothing like the Smallville version though, I can't believe you're basing your opinion on one still photo

I'm not seeing the similarities at all.

That guy is clearly trolling cause he probably loves a debate

I never watched Smallville past the first couple of seasons, but I looked up "Smallville Zod" on google images and could not find a single one that looked even remotely like Shannon's Zod.

I have to clarify that I didn't mean he actually looks like the actor in Smallville, but that he looks like he could have stepped right out of Smallville and to MOS because of the cheap look. I don't think that armour and that face is worthy Zod in an expensive film like this. He seems to lack the regal look of the previous Zod, and it's not just because of Terence Stamp. They could have made Zod look more majestic in MOS without having a clone of Stamp.
The acting still remains to be seen. This is only about the looks

Easier to understand now?

I'm amazed you can tell that much from one trailer still. One that's basically a headshot, no less.

There are lots of things you can't judge from a picture. Like his speaking accent. Or how he carries himself. Or how he acts. Or basically MOST THINGS about the character.

That's because a single picture only gives limited information.

You can judge that he's not regal and majestic and that he's straight out of Smallville from a headshot? That's amazing.

I mentioned the acting not because you were critiquing it, but to illustrate the point that this is a single picture and thus gives very limited information. I thought that point was quite clear, my apologies for confusing you. Let me state it plainly: it doesn't matter what your picture interpretative skills are, it is a limited amount of information. Its a headshot. That's all.

Now that is established, I'd like to point out that nothing in that shot suggests he isn't majestic or regal. Nor would it be a disaster if he isn't. He's General Zod, a military man. To dress in battle armor is natural for his character.

I understand that you have an opinion that is seemingly utterly subjective and baseless. I was wondering if there was something in particular that stood out to you as being TV budget or as betraying cheap costume design. I'm getting the idea though that there isn't something like that, but rather this is merely your impressionistic feeling?

That's cool. If that's the case there's not much more to discuss on that then.

Yeah didnt you know you could tell someone looks like they've had their costume done on a TV budget just by looking at a single image of their head and neck area that's a still taken from a 2 sec snippet in a trailer

Micheal Shannon isn't going for the arrogant, regal and majestic bored aristocratic Zod of Terence Stamp.

Shannon has said his Zod will be more like a tough military general. Like Project862006 said his more like Julius Cesar.

Michael Shannon said in an interview
Quote:
MS: This is one of the biggest stories of all time: the Superman story. Its prevalence is enormous. And I remember watching the original films — the [Richard] Donner films, and Terence Stamp in the role [of Zod], and the three Kryptonians — it scared the crap out of me. It really left an impression on me. Someone asking me to follow in those footsteps seemed like the highest kind of challenge you could have as an actor. And I always like to be challenged.

[Zod's] not one of these archetypal villains with horns coming out of his head and breathing fire or something. He’s a man, a Kryptonian man. He’s a general, that’s his main attribute. That’s the way I approach it: playing a general. I’ve done military parts before, but I’ve only been up to sergeant, so this is a big promotion.
