Zod is the Man in Black on the Man of Steel Set

According to the boys and girls at the Superman Facebook page, this is Michael Shannon, sans motion-capture doohickeys, on the set of Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”. In “Man of Steel”, Shannon plays General Zod, Superman’s fellow Kryptonian who, along with Faora (Antje Traue), shows up on Earth o cause some problems for our intergalactic illegal alien, played by Henry Cavill.

The images are a bit blurry and you can’t really see Shannon’s face all that clearly, so it could be his stunt double. In any case, this is supposedly Zod. Or it might not be. If this is Shannon as Zod (or even his stunt double), the look of the uniform is somewhat similar to Superman’s suit.

“Man of Steel” also stars Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Christopher Meloni, Julia Ormond, and Harry Lennix. Shannon attacks June 14, 2013.
