Michael Shannon: 'Superman: Man of Steel' Villain!

Michael Shannon will play General Zod, the lead villain in the upcoming film Superman: Man of Steel, according to THR.

The 35-year-old actor is best known for his Oscar-nominated role in Revolutionary Road, as well as his stint on the hit series Boardwalk Empire.

“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,” director Zack Snyder said.

Superman: Man of Steel will also star Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent.
