In a recent interview with the Gold Coast Bulletin, actor Michael Shannon was asked if he’d be interested in returning to play the role of General Zod if the upcoming “Supergirl” movie called for it.
“Wow, that’s interesting. I swear to God, I am not kidding — you are breaking this news to me,” he admitted. “I will have to look into that. Zod again? I don’t know — it’s been a while. I am a little older and creakier now — I’m not sure I could do all the moves.”
“Also, I have to say in complete and utter seriousness that I just loved working with Zack Snyder and that was a big part of it for me,” Shannon continued. “I don’t know who’s making this Supergirl movie but I really treasure that experience with Zack. He’s a hell of a guy.”
Originally reported to begin filming in early 2020, there has been no recent movement on the “Supergirl” movie, which was alleged to be looking at a 2021 release date. Oren Uziel (22 Jump Street and The Cloverfield Paradox) was reported to be writing a screenplay.
