Michael Shannon Thinks Your Theory About Zod’s Costume Is Stupid

I think that might be photoshopped... 

If you have a theory about the look of General Zod in the upcoming Superman reboot, Michael Shannon has some bad news: you’re not even close.

When asked about his role in Man of Steel, the actor and current star of Boardwalk Empire lamented the fact that so many fanboys are so very, very wrong about his character’s wardrobe.

…There’s people that have these pictures – somebody generated this on a computer, but I don’t know it’s a picture of what people think I’m going to look like in the movie. They have like a Fu Manchu, kind of like this black SS uniform and it’s pretty mind-blowingly awful and it’s completely inaccurate, but I go ahead and sign them anyway. But I tell them when I sign the picture, I say “This isn’t – you’re wrong.” You know, whoever thought that they cracked the case is way off.

While your theories about Zod’s outfit might be way off, chances are you already have a pretty good idea about the plot, not that Shannon is allowed to discuss it.

“It’s kind of like saying I’m not supposed to talk about the Pledge of Allegiance,” Shannon said. “It’s kind of silly.”
