Michael Shannon - Man of Steel

Next up on our Man of Steel takeover day we’ve got Zod played by the simply wonderful Michael Shannon. If you missed our previous interviews so far, make sure you click here for interviews with Director Zack Snyder and cast members Ayelet Zurer and Antje Traue.

In this interview James Kleinmann (who went to sunny Burbank to conduct the interviews) asks about what Michael’s thoughts were when he first read the script and what he thought of this version of Zod. James also asks about the vision of the Superman franchise and what he thought of the David S. Goyer script and working with Christoper Nolan. We also get to hear about the hectic shooting schedule, the huge amount of rehearsals that had to go into the movie and he specifically talks about the ‘epic’ fight between his and Russell Crowe’s character. Finally we get to hear about his thoughts on Henry Cavill playing the lead role as Superman and his first connection with Superman.

Coming up later today we have interviews with Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Amy Adams and Superman himself, Henry Cavill so keep your eyes peeled for those. They’ll be hitting on the hour every hour until 4pm GMT.

Man of Steel is released in the UK 14th June.
