A new video has been released for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, and it marks the first time we’ll get a taste of Michael Shannon as the villainous General Zod. The video doesn’t actually show the good (or dastardly?) general, it’s just a mess of static and interference with Zod issuing Kal El rather ominous warning.
Zod’s message basically states that Superman has to surrender himself to his custody, and failure to comply means the consequences will be felt by Earth as a whole. You can check out the video for yourself:
Michael Shannon is known for delivering effective performances as dangerous, on-the-edge characters, but the latest Man of Steel video shows that he can be equally effective as a calm, yet menacing despot.
Directed by Zack Snyder and co-starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Russell Crowe, Man Of Steel opens in the UK on 14 June 2013.
