Sitting down with MTV, Michael Shannon talks about how Man Of Steel is more serious than any other comic book movie and how it was like to film this iconic role.
"It never really felt like a comic-book movie to me. Because of the approach, it was so serious. And I don't mean that to make it sound like it's not [fun]; I mean, at the end of the day, it's meant to be an entertaining movie and I think it is. But from the beginning where they're on Krypton, there's some real serious issues being discussed, and real dire circumstances. And just the scope of it kind of took me by surprise — I think it's unusual."
Even though the tone is different in this film, Shannon enjoyable be a character that is well established and even sympathetic. "Even though people think I'm really good at being evil or something, if the job was just to show up and be mean to people, I would get confused, I think. It was nice to have a very clear objective."

Man of Steel flies into theaters June 14th.
