Michael Shannon Added to Superman Cast!

Michael Shannon is Zod!!!

Henry Cavill will be kneeling before Michael Shannon’s Zod in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman film. The Boardwalk Empire star is the latest actor to be cast as Zod the evil general from Krypton, imprisoned by Jor-EL in the Phantom Zone for crimes against Krypton. Shannon has some big shoes to fill following Terence Stamp and Callum Blue who portrayed the arguably Superman’s most worthy villain in Superman 2 and Smallville respectively.

This is more great casting news from the Snyder camp, the Superman reboot is shaping up to have some high expectations. I can’t wait to see what they announce next!

I have to admit, I like this casting choice. He should be able to play a pretty commanding Zod.


Yeah, Snyder and Nolan are knocking it out of the park with casting… for the most part.
