Michael Shannon Says MAN OF STEEL Is "Powerful"

Michael Shannon Says MAN OF STEEL Is "Powerful"

Michael Shannon briefly talks about his role in WB's Man Of Steel and his other villainous turn in Iceman. "I don’t know if I can say that I am more or less proud of one or the other. They’re very different processes"



It begin as a casual interveiw about shannon in the ice man but then this question was asked.

How do you feel about being yourself as an actor and as part of an ensemble in “The Iceman,” compared to being part of an ensemble in the new Superman movie (“Man of Steel”)?

Well, I’ve seen “Man of Steel” and I’ve seen “Iceman,” and I’m proud of both of them. “Man of Steel” is a very exhilarating movie to watch. It’s a very powerful film. It also has surprising gravity to it. It’s definitely intended to be hugely entertaining, and I feel it is. It’s not completely without some subtext or moral, but I don’t know if I can say that I am more or less proud of one or the other. They’re very different processes.

“Iceman” was a very difficult movie to make. We didn’t have a lot of time, and we didn’t have a lot of money. There were days when we literally didn’t think we’d be able to shoot the whole movie, that we would have to cut scenes out of the movie because we were going to run out of time or run out of money. The fact that when I go in and I sit there and see that it’s all there, it’s something that I’m proud of.

Next up for Shannon is General Zod in “Man of Steel,” in theaters June 14.
