Michael Shannon loves playing with the press. Remember when he told a ridiculous story about being locked in a port-a-potty on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? Then he denied it. Now he’s at it again in his best interview yet!
Vulture asked celebrities and important people in the comic book industry who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman. Michael Shannon, who played General Zod in Man of Steel, gave the best answer of them all. It’s classic Michael Shannon.
“I’m so utterly unconcerned with the outcome of that fight. So profoundly, utterly unconcerned. I can’t even come up with a fake answer. I guess I have to root for Superman because he killed me, so I would hope that he would continue his killing spree and become like a serial killer Superman. That’s a new take on Superman. We’d all be in a heap of trouble if Superman was a serial killer. He could just wipe us all out. But then he’d be lonely.”
Isn’t he already lonely?
“Well, we’re all lonely.”
