Michael Shanon in the new Superman flick
In case you haven't heard, one of my favorite working actors Michael Shanon was cast recently as General Zod in the new Superman movie (Titled "The Man of Steel").
Shannon is a power house. The first time I saw him in something was in 2007's BUG (and now I realize that he was in one of my favorite comedies of all time Cecil B. Demented), and his reach as an actor stuck with me.
Flashforward to now where he plays Nelson Van Alden on Boardwalk Empire (a literally perfect show).
In my opinion we don't need another Superman where he only fights Luthor or General Zod, but I'll see this because of who the villain is (and since Amy Adams is Lois Lane).
Snyder has the capacity to fuck this up, but since he didn't write the script I'm hopeful for it.
