I’ll give Zack Snyder some credit, he is putting together a very interesting cast, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Amy Adams and now Michael Shannon as General Zod. #1 I am psyched to see Zod confirmed as baddie numero uno for the new Superman: Man of Steel and #2 Michael Shannon is one hell of a terrifficly creepy and sinister actor. He stole the show as the insane-but-saner-than-you John Givings in Revolutionary Road and has been stellar as the broken but holy-rolling FBI agent in HBOs fantastic Boardwalk Empire.
