One of the things I'm most excited about for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel is the fact that Michael Shannon is playing the villain Zod. The guy is going to be awesome. Up until this point we've only seen photos of Shannon on the set of the film wearing a motion capture suit. Now we have images of Shannon wearing a cool looking Black Superman style Kryptonian suit. It looks like the same design as the suit we've seen Henry Cavill wear only it's black, and yes the suit is much better looking in black. We also see Shannon sporting some Zod facial hair. What do you all think?
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone's imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question - Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent, Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as "Superman," not only to shine as the world's last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
