Bummer but I'm not too upset about it.
GoILL - 11/5/2012, 2:10 PM
Not that bothered by this, also the host of that show has a pretty awesome set of boobs.
BlueDemon - 11/5/2012, 2:11 PM
Nooooo! oh he going to say a variation of it like Uncle Ben did on TASM? lol
TokenNerd - 11/5/2012, 2:12 PM
Video is not available for me :(
StrangerX - 11/5/2012, 2:13 PM
WTF is this shit??
thewonderer - 11/5/2012, 2:17 PM
This line is never said in the comics right?

so who cares
toco89 - 11/5/2012, 2:18 PM
Epic answer. MOS gonna bring it.
zachman2013 - 11/5/2012, 2:19 PM
Not the end of the world, but he might not say those exact words
He could say:
"I will make you kneel before me"
"Your world will kneel before me"
"Kneal, you super-bitch"
Ok, that last one was just me.

CharacterAssassin - 11/5/2012, 2:22 PM
I'm gonna go with... "You will Kneel Before Me"
Jollem - 11/5/2012, 2:23 PM
okay...that matters as much as martin sheen needing to say the "responsibility" line that uncle ben said in spider-man 1. which is to say it doesn't

I doubt Michael Shannon wil say Kneel Before Zod. I was hoping he would say. "I am General Zod! I am your ruler!" But again, I doubt if he says that in MOS.
blvdnoise - 11/5/2012, 2:31 PM
@Mercwitham0uth lol Only in a perfect world..
DioFoRio - 11/5/2012, 2:32 PM
I heard they went The Amazing Spiderman route and he says " Why do you not just let me have my way, in essence you will get down on one knee in front of me acknowledging your surrender?Kneel if you will?"
DioFoRio - 11/5/2012, 2:36 PM
that chick has a great rack
GoILL - 11/5/2012, 2:38 PM

LOL at your first post, agreed on your second.
MJPETTY7 - 11/5/2012, 2:38 PM
I hate the world...

Not really, I'm sure he at least says "KNEEL". That would be fine with me.

You're a clown, he's a proper actor with good wit.

There's a difference.
TheGambitFreak - 11/5/2012, 2:43 PM
LMAO @Dionysios, perfect.

Besides, there is a new guy in town telling people to Kneel.

Greengo - 11/5/2012, 2:44 PM
We need a poll on this STAT!
DioFoRio - 11/5/2012, 2:46 PM
DioFoRio - 11/5/2012, 2:46 PM

DioFoRio - 11/5/2012, 2:48 PM
TheGambitFreak - 11/5/2012, 2:49 PM
I want my pole inside her.
GoILL - 11/5/2012, 2:50 PM

If it wasn't for the tit bounce I would never had watched that video due to it being on that network.
SuperPickle - 11/5/2012, 2:54 PM
Terrible host, but wow, what a rack!!!
Tony93 - 11/5/2012, 2:54 PM
RobGrizzly - 11/5/2012, 2:55 PM
...Or we could have just found this out in the movie.

Was this really report-worthy?
GoILL - 11/5/2012, 2:58 PM

Glad I could help friend. ;)
Vapes - 11/5/2012, 3:10 PM
Well, it's Michael Shannon, so I'm sure he'll think of something.
AmazingFantasy - 11/5/2012, 3:15 PM
It'll be too much Loki...
vtopa - 11/5/2012, 3:18 PM
Best...bad guy...line...EVER.
Sithsidious66 - 11/5/2012, 3:19 PM
Bad point, Michael Shannon. Too bad for you.
avengersleagueofjusticeforamerica - 11/5/2012, 3:20 PM
I wish they wouldve done a different villain like parasite, braniac, or doomsday.
