Man of Steel: Michael Shannon's Journey to Zod

by at .

Movie Fanatic caught up with Michael Shannon at the Toronto Film Festival in September where he was just beginning work as the villain Zod in the upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel. He seemed excited and nervous at the same time about tackling the role made famous by Terence Stamp in the 1981 movie Superman 2. Now that he has been filming the movie for a few months, he is talking about the experience. “I find it pretty intimidating, honestly,” he said about stepping into Stamp’s shoes. “I think he pretty much nailed it. My girlfriend had it on. She was watching out of curiosity. And I saw it and said, 'You’ve got to turn it off! I can’t watch that! I’m not worthy!'"
