Michael Shannon Says Returning To Play General Zod In The Flash Wasn't 'Satisfying'

Michael Shannon, who played General Zod in Man of Steel, said his return to the role in The Flash was unsatisfying. Previously, Shannon said he was “a little confused” when he was first invited to return as General Zod. Shannon’s reaction was understandable, since Superman broke General Zod’s neck in Man of Steel. But in these multiverse movies, any character can return.

The Flash will be based on the comic book story “Flashpoint,” in which Barry Allen uses his superspeed to travel back in time to save his mother. This leads to an alternate timeline where everything is different. In the trailer, fans saw a second Barry Allen played by Ezra Miller, with Ben Affleck returning as Batman and Michael Keaton returning as an alternate timeline Batman. Sasha Calle is playing Supergirl, and General Zod’s neck isn’t broken.

In an interview with Collider, Shannon talked about what it’s like to return as General Zod after 10 years. ‘Yes. I’m not going to lie, it’s not very satisfying for me as an actor,” he said. “These multiverse movies are like someone playing with action figures. Like, ‘This is this guy. This is that person. They are fighting! “Shannon said that he prefers Zack Snyder’s handling of the Iron Man character. “Honestly, I don’t think “Iron Man” is the kind of in-depth character research situation. “Shannon didn’t like the way the studio was treating Snyder and his DC movies. He even asked for Snyder’s blessing to play the role before accepting the role. After receiving Snyder’s blessing, Shannon felt that taking the role It was comfortable, but in the end he wasn’t content with being an actor.

It might be cool for audiences to see their favorite characters return or even have a specific actor comeo that makes more sense outside of the movie than in the movie. However, it feels like “playing with puppets” at times, which is fun but not always a lot of depth.

Although he wasn’t happy with his role as Zod in The Flash, Shannon said he was excited to see Miller in The Flash. Shannon also said that what Miller is going to do in this movie is pretty crazy. Shannon was probably talking about how Miller played both characters in The Flash. Some fans have speculated that one of the characters could be Reverse Flash, but fans won’t have to wait long to see.

The Flash will be released on June 16, 2023.
