http://www.totalfilm.com/news/michae...n-man-of-steelMichael Shannon won’t say “Kneel before Zod” in Man Of Steel
Villain actor rules out return of iconic line
Nov 6th 2012 By Matt Maytum
Man Of Steel’s villain, General Zod, will not be uttering the immortal line “Kneel before Zod”, actor Michael Shannon has confirmed.
In an interview with VH1, Shannon was asked about the line, and admitted, “I don’t say that in the movie.”
The three word put-down was made famous by Terence Stamp’s incarnation of the supervillain in Superman II.
Perhaps it’s a good idea that Shannon won’t be impinging on Stamp’s turf, as that piece of dialogue has become so deeply associated with that film.
It has also become the subject of much parody over the years, so it's possible the omission is a statement of intent - will Shannon’s Zod lack the grandstanding, scenery-chewing pomp of the comic-book movie villains of old?
Man Of Steel is directed by Zack Snyder, and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Kevin Costner, and it opens in the UK on 14 June 2013.
For the most part, I enjoyed Callum Blue as Zod on Smallville.
If Man of Steel can give us a Zod that is the next step in that character's evolution, then I'll be pleased.
Yeah I wish someone else was directing the movie...oh wait.
I'm not expecting much. It's a corporately driven production due to the lawsuit. Snyder is fair at best as a director, and given his fandom of Miller's DKR, he clearly does not understand Superman. The costume is predictable and horrid. The cast is good.
DC/WB is completely clueless with Superman so to expect the character to ever flourish again is wishful thinking, flukes like Morrison's stories aside.
Unless and until the lawsuits are settled and someone who respects Superman has power at WB/DC, the character will continue to flounder.
Over and over, the crow cries uncover the cornfield.
If it's a corporately drivin production because of the lawsuit, then why waste time to completely reboot the franchise when they had a SR sequel to ride out? They signed Cavill on to three movies and continue to pimp a Justice League movie but why would they go to these epic announcements if they just let Superman flounder?
Guys like Ben Affleck down to off-set crews saw most footage of the film and commented on it as being incredible in the least of capacities and barely holding their tongue since they can't hide the excitement of the versatile nature of the direction.
That and executives carrying the Man Of Steel trailer attached to the Hobbit is already calling it the best superhero trailer ever made. The feel I'm getting from it, it's going to be the Summer's Blockbuster hit, but at the same time, be the sleeper of the year.
