Michael Shannon Talks 'Man Of Steel', Boardwalk Empire And The Oscar Buzz

The Province:
Actor Michael Shannon seems to be everywhere right now, chasing 1920s bootleggers on TV’s Boardwalk Empire, drawing Oscar buzz for his role in the intimate apocalyptic thriller Take Shelter, and reinventing General Zod for a new generation of Superman fans in the currently filming Man of Steel.

i still think its a odd choice for zod though thats only because im so used to the Terence Stamp one

who was also ironically the voice of supermans father in smallville who they used a younger version in season 9 which i accepted only because he was just that a younger version

hell in the earlier seasons his spirit being sucked out of Lex even looked like Terence Stamp

I agree...this was a good choice for him. I think he's really a good actor. Aside from the one that played Zod in the Smallville series, I think he's great.

I'm eager to see him in action in Man Of Steel.

Sometimes it takes them so long to get a movie made from the time you first hear about it that it feels like forever before they get it out at the theaters. I'm ready for it to come out and we still have another year to wait....don't we?
