October 13, 2011: Michael Shannon Talks About the Role of Zod

Michael Shannon The Orlando Sentinel has published an interview with actor Michael Shannon in which he talks about what kind of research he's done to prepare for the role of Zod in the up-coming "Man of Steel" film.

    "I'm going back to Vancouver this week and we'll see what happens," he says. "This role is totally about your imagination. There's not really any research you can do. It's total fantasy.

    "The only research you can do is look at the comic book and see what other people have done in those comics and on screen. The original film series made a big impression on me. I remember being scared to death of Terrence Stamp and those other two, all dressed in black.

    "There's no way I'm going to be able to do anything close to what he did. I'm trundling off in my own direction and we'll see if it works. I can be a little scary, too."
