Michael Shannon, General Zod in the new Superman movie, will take to the stage following the Man of Steel in Chicago with Simpatico.
While speaking with the Chicago Tribune, Shannon remarked how filming at Union Station for the Man of Steel reminded him of The Untouchables movie.
“One of the wildest things for me about doing ‘Man of Steel’ was shooting at Union Station,” Shannon told the Tribune. “I’ve been to Union Station a lot, mostly when I’m taking the train somewhere. We were in the same room where they shot that amazing sequence in ‘The Untouchables.’ I would look over at the staircase and see the baby carriage coming down the stairs.”
Shannon continues on the subject of the Man of Steel with mention about set images and that they do not resemble the Zod we’ll see on the big screen, but does remark that he has seen one that is true to the material.
“They had us wear these big plastic parkas to cover up our uniforms It’s interesting because I’ve run into people who have pictures they want me to sign from ‘Man of Steel.’ And they have images that look nothing like what I’m going to look like in the movie. I don’t even know where they came from. I guess we were pretty successful, but I did see one picture of me wearing the costume leak on the Internet.”
It’s also worth noting that Michael Shannon has been seen on the Man of Steel set in a motion-capture suit, which seems to suggest something more than the black Kryptonian suit teased underneath the parka.
