Michael Shannon Had No Issues With Superman Killing Zod in Man of Steel


Actor Michael Shannon, who played General Zod in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, was recently interviewed by Cinema Blend and during the interview he was asked if he thought Zod’s death in the film was unnecessary. As clearly some people are still not over Superman’s killing Zod in the film, which came out almost 7 years ago on June 14, 2013.

Shannon went on to depend the scene and goes on to explain why:

“No, I didn’t think there was any other way to end it, really,I mean, Zod says it’s either me or you. I’m not gonna let you survive. I will kill you, unless you kill me. And that seemed sufficiently Greek to me, you know?”

Cinema Blend  went back to Man of Steel once again in the articlestating the other reason Shannon was totally fine with the way Zod died was because he’s typically beholden to the script, and rarely asks for any major changes to the story:

“I’ve seen other actors that feel more comfortable kind of going in and screwing around with the script and the story. But I’ve never felt real comfortable with that unless there’s something that’s just glaringly nonsensical. I kinda keep my mouth shut, because I’m not a writer. I can’t write a screenplay to save my life. So I have a lot of respect for the script and, and I only go off it if I’m encouraged to by the director.”
