The plot for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel is a closely guarded secret. Even the trailers aren’t giving away too much in terms of a story. What we do know however is that General Zod will be taking centre stage as the nemesis of our favourite boy scout, with Michael Shannon taking over the role that Terrance Stamp immortalised in Superman II. We haven’t seen anywhere near enough of Shannon’s Zod to make a fair assessment of his portrayal, however the latest viral video for the film hints at what we have to look forward to. Here, Zod demands the earth hand over Superman or “suffer the consequences”. The static video is very creepy and further hints at the dark road that Snyder is taking the famous superhero down. I for one am very excited.
