    I liked his ridiculous performance in the Twilight films. Didn't like it in Tron, thought it was more annoying than over the top and I love over the top.

    I got a Ziggy Stardust vibe from his Tron role, and I love me some Bowie.

    Ha, Sheen's role in Tron was the only character I enjoyed. He was great in Breaking Dawn 2 too. He is great at playing just enough over the top, without playing over. He never loses his credibility or presence.

    Michael Sheen really annoyed me as Kenneth Williams. Most of you here probably don't know what I'm talking about, but Kenneth Williams was a very famous British actor and Sheen first got famous in Britain for playing him.

    He was far better as Tony Blair.

    Sheen was exceptional as Brian Clough in the Damned United

    Not a bad film at all, it's a shame that the story is pretty much pure fiction though

    Cool. Dunno what it is about Sheen, but he's just got something. Would've loved to see him in MOS or a sequel, but not as Lex. But it should be a fairly big part. Bruno Manheim or Morgan Edge maybe, with a british accent of course.

    I love that it's just about the exact same camera angle on both those character shots. I was just thinking about how I'd pay good money to see Michael Shannon go head-to-head with Russell Crowe in any movie, whatever the subject matter. The idea that I'll get to see it in a Superman movie of all things is just too amazing for me to fully process, lol.

    6'3, but will probably look 6'5 - 6'6 in armor.

    So now that we've got tha new picture of Zod going berserk and getting ready to presumably rip someone's head off without his cape, who here wants him to epically remove his cape before going Mano y Mano with the Man of Steel?

    And I guess we now know they animated his armor as opposed to Faora's for the ease of making it look really good in the action sequences while keeping its bulky look.
