Michael Shannon Wants To Be Bleepin’ Aquaman


[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7410:]]While Michael Shannon has set his sites on Superman and Earth in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel movie, the actor comments on which superhero he would like to play.

It’s Aquaman!

“You know who I really want to play?” Shannon told BulletMedia. “Aquaman. If they ever make a f—ing Aquaman movie, I want to be Aquaman.”

Aquaman has recently been relaunched under the New 52 DC Comics event which has really brought the character a long way from being its “cheezy” (as some think) inception to one of DC’s more popular characters under the direction of Geoff Johns, with new artist Paul Pelletier coming onboard recently as well.

Maybe we’ll see Aquaman in the Justice League movie?

You can see Michael Shannon as General Zod in the Man of Steel June 14th.
