On Cavill's portrayal of Superman:"He's perfect, he's flawless, he's everything you could possibly want,I saw the movie the other day for the first time, and I just love the original as much as anybody but I can't think of another actor in the business today that could come close to what he did. He was just sensational."

Shannon also addressed the fight scenes in the film, pointing out that they are epic: "Yes, of course,if we didn't have any interaction at all, it would probably be kind of bizarre." Lastly, he jokingly added that no physical injuries where ensued: "No injuries physically, no,some mental injuries I'm still trying to get over, but that's no secret to anybody."

If his only intention was to make the film sound good and he in fact didn't like Cavill's portrayal or he thought it was somewhat mediocre, then I seriously doubt he would seem so passionate and enthusiastic about it.

I hope one day that some actor will be interviewed about their upcoming movie and they say it is going to suck. That would be hilarious.

Shannon ALWAYS tells it like he means it. He was critical of his past movies, co-stars and so on. And he wasn't too impressed with Cavill at first (before filming began he simply said ´´I think this guy is gonna be alright``) and during filming wouldn't answer how Cavill is in the role because he only had one scene with him at the time and he can't say yet and went on to say he has a soft spot for Reeve. So yeah, you can trust Shannon. But then again, a lot of fans knew Henry was perfect for Supes years ago already (during his run with The Tudors) so this is nothing new. ;)

Michael Shannon has said that a movie he was doing "wasn't very good"...before the movie even came out.

He's not a person the studios can bully.

@MrShumway: I don't trust anyone; especially, someone who eats cats. >;)
ElShumway - 4/23/2013, 5:03 PM
Well I don't trust anyone who keeps cats as pets and feeds them insteading of eating them! CATS WERE CREATED FOR ONLY ONE REASON! FOOD!

Just might end up being one of the best CBM castings ever. Cavill looks like a god in that trailer.

I loved Superman as a kid... even had my own outfit in preschool and it was dope, but the past decade I've really come to care very little about him.

However, Im a huge fan of Snyder and Cavill and am actually more interested in this than Iron Man.

I'm a Marvel dude but read all comics...gotta say I'm excited for this movie a bit more than The Avengers.

I knew Avengers was gonna be good since I really liked all the Marvel Studios film leading up to it.
Despite some flaws,the first 2 Christopher Reeve Superman films were great & Chris has always been THE ONLY Superman.

After all the stuff I have read & seen,MOS may be better than any Marvel movie & Cavill may become the true Supes!
