Zod Will Face 'The Man Of Steel'

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have announced that Michael Shannon will play the role of General Zod in Zack Snyder's new Superman film, now officially titled Man of Steel. Snyder stated:
"Zod is not only one of Superman's most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don't. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role."
As General Zod, Shannon will go toe-to-toe with Henry Cavill's man of steel. The main cast also includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent.
