I have a feeling that Shannon might steal the show.

I'm starting to get that feeling too. Kneel before Zod! It seems like the DC villains are destined to overshadow the heroes on screen.

Well, most of Superman's villains overshadow him. He's just a nice guy, until they push him to the point where he's not.

Just saw The Iceman. That was such a powerful film, pretty much soley down to Shannon's incredible performance.

He's just such an amazing actor

Deborah Snyder:
Quote:
And what does Michael Shannon bring to Zod? He’s clearly going to be compared to Terence Stamp, who was such an iconic take on that villain…
Michael Shannon is again such a respected actor. He had never done something of this physicality before, so it was challenging for him. All his armour is CG, so he embodied this role by looking at the pictures of what he was going to look like, and how he would move in his armour when he was in a mo-cap suit. You need someone who’s super-seasoned as an actor to pull that off, and he really does. It’s funny, because he’s the nicest guy, but sometimes on set he would be super-serious. He’d be in character and I’d be like “Oh my goodness, he is super-scary!” And then all of a sudden he would finish the scene, he’d break a joke and you’d be like “Oh, that’s Michael, he’s funny…” I forgot that because he’s kind of terrifying too! He just has this intensity that he brings to the role.


And a physicality that has to match what Henry brings to Superman…
He’s a giant, but we really put him through the motions. The training for the role was so much a part of the process of making the film. The guys carried themselves differently as they went through their process of transforming their bodies. It was a really important part of the preparation. You saw Michael’s posture change. As we went along in prep he kept becoming more and more Zod-like, and I’d say the same thing about Henry too. It’s like they would carry themselves differently. It wasn’t that they were wearing a padded suit, they actually filled the suit, but it did something to their performance at the same time, and I think helped them get in the head of their character.


Was there any alpha male competition going on between the two guys?
[laughs] Maybe in the gym. Mark Twight, who trained them, usually pitted them against each other and would post their scores on the board. They’d do the workout and the timings or the weight would be up there for everyone to see. It keeps everyone kinda honest, I think, but also competitive.


Sounds like some serious psychology there…
Yeah!

I would love to hear a mashup of the dialogue from the new trailer and the sorority letter. "Newsflash, you stupid f***ing c**ks!!! You are not alone."

One 3 second clip in the trailer and he already gave me the creeps; he came off like the DC version of Buffalo Bill screaming "put the lotion in the basket"!

^ Now I just want to see the "You're a monster Zod, I'm gonna stop you!" tv spot.

PS. I think Zod will be the underestimated madman of Krypton, who turns out to actually have a plan and a method

Shannon has that sense of insanity/craziness about him. He just looks like he's ready to flip. I'm sure with this and the powers Zod has he'll be be amazing at playing his part

If they ever do a James Cagney biopic, this ****er right here better be their first and only choice.

He's kind of an oddie. Very honest, but very strange. Very FEW people play crazy like Shannon does. I'm expecting for him to give the best performance of the movie, followed by our lead of course. But I don't think the film will have him for much of the movie's runtime, to avoid upstaging Supes. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

I agree, that's the only thing I'm worried about, the film being rushed. It seems to have alot going on. I think he'll play out the rivalry between him and Supes/Jor-El rather well though

I'd probably stick Adams in between there. Cavill has to play off two veterans in a sense.

So if Zod had the means (technology) to recreate that Genesis machine that allows kryptonians to engineer other kryptonians on board Black Zero, why didn't he just potentially breed himself a new army during those 20 plus years that he was looking for Earth?
