Michael Shannon Teases Zod's Look In Man Of Steel; It's Not "Fu-Man Chu" Or An "SS Uniform"!
In a brief interview with GQ, the actor continues to tease the look of Zod in Man of Steel (it's not what we think apparently) and talks about training and whether he talked superhero movies with TDKR star Joseph Gordon-Levitt...
All we know so far for definite is that Michael Shannon will indeed have more than just the one look in Man of Steel. One of those will be in some sort of Kryptonian garb, while the other will be enhanced by CGI. Whether that means we'll see General Zod sporting a look like that seen in the image above is unknown, but the actor has continued to tease what we will and WON'T see in the upcoming movie. Many thanks to @ManofSteel_2013 for the heads up.
On What We Will And More Than Likely Won't See Zod Wearing In Man of Steel:
It's funny, when I go to red carpets people have this mockup photo of what they think I'm going to look like in the movie. But the point is it's totally inaccurate! [On the mockups], I have a Fu-Man Chu and some kind of SS uniform. I just want to tell everybody out there, that's not the way it is.
On The Kind Of Training Zack Snyder Has Him Doing For The Role:
Henry works out like a fiend and is in very, very good shape. That trainer who did 300, Mark Twight, is [on set]. I go and see him from time to time just because I enjoy it but the fact is that it really doesn't matter for me. With Henry I think there's a picture of him recently without his shirt on, so he has to be super fit.
On Whether He And TDKR Star Joseph Gordon-Levitt Compared Comic Book Movies On The Set Of Premium Rush:
Not really. He's a really sweet guy but I'm hunting him most of the movie, chasing him around, so we didn't talk much. We did have a couple of scenes together, but most of the time he's always just out of my reach.
