Kneel Before Michael Shannon! - Set To Play Zod In Man Of Steel!

The cast for the new Superman movie "The Man of Steel" is growing larger every day and now word has hit the net that not only is General Zod the big bad but he's to be played by Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road & Boardwalk Empire).

Director Zack Snyder stated, “Zod is not only one of Superman’s most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don’t. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role.”

As General Zod, Shannon will go toe-to-toe with Henry Cavill, who plays the new Clark Kent/Superman in the film. The main cast also includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent.
