We’ve seen a few Man of Steel trailers already with their Terrence Malick flourishes, and their focus on a contemplative and quiet Superman, but this trailer switches focus to the supervillain, Zod, and as we know, a superhero movie is only as good as its villain (the original Iron Man, excepted). And Holy Mother of Zod, people. This guy has got motherf**king spaceships at his disposal, and Michael Shannon may be the most talented actor to take on a villain role since Heath Ledger. The guy is a beast. He’s terrifying when he’s reading a letter written by a sorority girl; imagine how good he’s going to be when he’s supposed to be evil.
Y’all can enjoy your Henry Cavill and his brooding. Me? I’m Team Zod.
