Michael Shannon Teases The Return Of General Zod In The Flash – Exclusive

Recalling when he was first contacted to reprise General Zod for “The Flash,” Michael Shannon admitted he was initially perplexed by the idea. “I was a little confused. I said, ‘As memory serves me, I think I died in “Man of Steel.” Are they sure they got the right guy?'” Shannon told Looper. “But then they explained to me the whole multiverse phenomenon, which … I was a little behind the times on that. I can’t say that I’m a huge consumer of this genre of films — not that I have anything against them. If I’m going to watch a movie, the odds are it’s not going to be one of those, but I sure love making them.”

As such, Shannon said he embraced working with Andy Muschietti on “The Flash” with the same enthusiasm he had collaborating with Zack Snyder on “Man of Steel.”

“I loved making ‘Man of Steel,’ and I love working with Zack, and I felt like it was actually, in a way, a fairly important film,” Shannon said. “It was nice to revisit the character [for ‘The Flash’]. I wasn’t there for a terribly long time. I was in and out in a couple of weeks, so it was a nice way to spend a bit of my summer in England. Andy’s a lovely guy and a great artist, visually, and I had a blast.”
