Michael Shannon (aka Zod) Fell Asleep Watching ‘Batman v Superman’

All the way back in 2013, there was a sleepy arthouse motion picture named Man of Steel. Among its players was actor Michael Shannon, who played the antagonist, Zod. When Shannon was interviewed by Fandango, they asked him if he had watched that film’s followup, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

And, well, he said, “You’re gonna get me in trouble, man! People ask me about this all the time. OK, I’ll tell you the God’s honest truth. Zack [Snyder] is gonna kill me for this — he’s gonna kill me. I watched it once and I fell asleep.”

“I shouldn’t have been watching it on a plane,” Shannon admitted. “But I never go to the movies anymore! I don’t have time to see anything. I used to go to the movies all the time when I was 20 years old and wasn’t working 10 days a week.”
