General Zod Has a Message for Superman and Earth (Hint: It’s not a Good Message)

Looks like big ol meanie General Zod (Michael Shannon) will be making demands on the people of Earth and its adopted son, the superhero Superman, aka Kal-El.

In summation: give up Supes or else Zod is going to do bad things like steal candy from our babies, pee in our public swimming pools, and you know, just general bad guy mayhem like that.

Check out the latest 30-second viral video from Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”. This thing has apparently been sending out drips all week, but Warner has officially released it via their YouTube channel today, just in time for the MTV Movie Awards. I’m assuming it’ll be shown during that telecast, too, with a new trailer due out soon, possibly sometime this week if we’re all good boys and girls.

I don’t watch the MTV Movie Awards (personally, I’d rather just stab myself in the eyeballs, it would be less painful), so if you do watch, let me know what you see. Hey, better you than me, am I right?

“Man of Steel” stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Russell Crowe, and whether we give Supes up or not, he’s coming to a theater near you this June 14, 2013.
