Michael Shannon is a fast rising star in Hollywood and he'll reach new levels in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot as the villainous alien General Zod. Shannon reportedly put the smack-down on his Australian co-star, Russel Crowe, who plays Superman’s biological father Jor-el.

“I think he’s out of the hospital, although I left as soon as he couldn’t get up off the floor,” he joked.

“I just said, ‘I’m done with you’, and I just walked out, so hopefully I won’t get fired from the movie. That would be awful, because they are paying me an awful lot of money,” he added.

It has been speculated that the fight between the two characters will take place on the alien planet of Krypton, and will showcase Superman's home world as never before seen in previous feature films.

Michael went on to state that he may be a little bit nervous about the pressure of playing the lead villain in the Man of Steel.

“It’s feeling kind of strange. I mean, it’s totally different than anything I have ever done before,” he revealed.

“I have never played an alien, or a general. I don’t really have a frame of reference for these things so you just have to use your imagination but I think that’s what we’re supposed to do anyway.”

Man Of Steel,also stars Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne and Christopher Meloni, is scheduled for a June 2013 release.

Man of Steel is an upcoming American superhero film under the development of Zack Snyder, Christopher Nolan, and David S. Goyer. Based on the DC Comics character Superman, the film will be a reboot of the Superman film series. Using Chicago as a backdrop, and with production to be based in west suburban Plano, the film entered principal photography in August 2011, for a planned theatrical release on June 14, 2013 by Warner Bros., which also includes IMAX venues.
