Michael Shannon Clears Up His Earlier Batman V Superman Comments

SHARE:


A few weeks back, Michael Shannon dropped a very strange bomb on us regarding General Zod’s appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, namely that the fearsome Kryptonian villain would now be sporting flippers for hands. Speaking recently in an interview with The Daily Beast, Shannon cleared up his comments, and it seems our original thoughts were true: the most intense man in Hollywood was having a laugh with us:

“Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bulls**t answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that. That is so obviously a complete bulls**t story, right? But people took it seriously.”

While some people will say this is damage control on Warmer Bros. part, on par with the ‘Talia al Ghul’ back pedal during the run up to The Dark Knight Rises, I really do think Shannon was trolling us with the flipper story. Sure there are a million, very comic book-y ways this could work in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel follow-up (incomplete clone being the top one), but it doesn’t really fit with the more grounded tone of the burgeoning DCCU. Shannon went on to shed some more light on his role in Batman v Superman, revealing that he actually wasn’t there and simply provided voice work for a role that sees Zod come back to life in a very similar way to Jor-El in Man of Steel:

The thing about the whole Krypton universe, apparently, is that even when you destroy them, there are ghosts. The first [film], Jor-El is there even though he’s been dead for lord knows how long…I went over and did some voice-over stuff because it’s like that ghost thing. But I don’t know if I’m supposed to say that. I get very nervous.”
So, what are your thoughts on these new details of Zod’s return? Sound off in the comments below.
