Man of Steel star Michael Shannon has revealed how happy he is for director Zack Snyder and the release of his Justice League movie.
Shannon – who worked with Snyder on Man of Steel back in 2013 – appeared on the LightCast pod and spoke openly about how happy he was for Snyder.
“I’ll tell you what I know, my friend Zack Snyder, he had a rough go of it. Between the struggles with his family and what he went through with Warner Bros.”
Zack is a sweet, kind, gentle, hardworking conscientious human being. I hope that this release gives him some sort of satisfaction or vindication or whatever. Because he’s such a good person, he deserves better than what he’s been dealing with.”
Shannon played Superman villain General Zod in Man of Steel and stood by Snyder’s decision to have Superman kill his enemy in an interview with CinemaBlend.
“No, I didn’t think there was any other way to end, it, really,”
I mean, Zod says it’s either me or you. I’m not gonna let you survive. I will kill you, unless you kill me. And that seemed sufficiently Greek to me, you know?”
