Michael Shannon 'Happy' To Play 'Man of Steel' Villain

Shannon, 38, is the chief villain in Man of Steel, the highly-anticipated Superman reboot that opens next month.

He's also the lead in The Iceman, a grim little drama about professional assassin Richard Kuklinski. That film, which co-stars Ray Liotta and Winona Ryder, opens in select cities Friday before rolling out across Canada.

I bet he is...that's one of the biggest roles in any movie. It's almost as important if not more important than the hero role. The villian is never forgotten.
