Michael Shannon is General Zod in Superman: Man of Steel

Warner Bros. just released an official press release indicating Pearl Harbor and Boardwalk Empire star Michael Shannon confirmed to play General Zod on the upcoming Superman film, Man of Steel.
BURBANK, CA, April 10, 2011 – Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures announced today that Michael Shannon will star in the role of General Zod in director Zack Snyder’s new Superman film, titled “Man of Steel.”

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.

After debunking Viggo Mortesan's involvement on the project,  Snyder promised that they will get a nuch better actor for the role.  Though unknown to most people, Snyder and Nolan have their full confidence over Shannon and trust him that he will give the character justice.  Slated for December 2012 release.  Superman: Man of Steel is from Legendary Pictures, to be  distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
