Michael Shannon recently spoke with The Huffington Post about his role as General Zod in Man of Steel and how it differs from what fans have seen before.
[Man of Steel's] a big buildup. I'll tell you, I saw it last Monday -- it's worth it. It's going to blow everybody's socks off. And I know [WB's] probably pissed off, like I'm jinxing it or something and I shouldn't say that. I'll knock on wood just out of deference to the gods, but the movie is solid. It's gonna get the job done.
On how his character would look after working so much on green screen and in a motion capture suit, Shannon was concerned, but said Snyder had asked for his trust.
I remember the first couple of days I was on set, I thought This is ridiculous. I look like an idiot. I don't look anything like General Zod. I'm a total failure. I went over to the screen for playback and it was ridiculous. All of us were wearing pajamas, basically. And there was this neon green set of stairs that was supposed to be our spaceship. So you see us all marching down these neon green stairs in our pajamas and I'm like, 'This looks like a Monty Python skit.' And he's like, "I know right now it looks pretty silly, but, two years from now, , it's going to look like the most badass thing you've ever seen in your life. And he's right.
