The actor who gave life to general Zod, Michael Shannon, shared his disagreement with those who argued against the end of his character in the Zack Snyder movie.

Mexico city, April 12 (However).- Man of Steel, the film that introduced Henry Cavill as the new Superman in 2013 still giving you what to talk about. Despite having received lukewarm on the part of the audience, one of the controversial aspects of the plot was the death of Zodthe villain, at the hands of the man of steel.

In this regard, the actor who gave life to general Zod, Michael Shannon, shared his disagreement with those who argued against the end of her character, arguing that it went against the philosophy of “thou shalt not kill” of the superhero.

“I don’t think that there would be another way to end, really. That is to say, Zod says that I am or you are. I will not let you worry. I will kill you, unless you kill me. And that seemed to me as a battle Greek, do you know?”, he explained in an interview with CinemaBlend.

The film, which gave the welcome to the Universe Paving of DC, told with the direction of Zack Snyder, who in 2016, outlined his reasons to show that facet of the last son of Krypton.

“I’ve always said, since I worked in Watchmen you have to be consequences of the interaction of the superheroes with the world. That was the approach that we had in Man of Steel. I wanted the consequences of the arrival of Superman to the Earth were very great.”

In this way, the powerful protagonist is forced to deal with all of your strength to Zod, who threatened to kill a family and whose appearance on the planet triggered a major disaster, in addition to becoming the basis on which there would be a rivalry with the “knight of the night” in Batman v Superman, also directed by Snyder.

On the treatment of the screenplay for the film, Shannon said that he preferred to stay out of the decisions of the production.

“I’ve seen other players that feel more comfortable popping up and criticizing the script and the story. But I have never felt really comfortable with that, unless there is something that does not make sense. Keep your mouth shut, because I’m not a writer. I can not write a script for earn my life. So I have a lot of respect for the script and I can only get out of it if the director encourages me to do it,” he explained.

The name of general Zod has also resonated among the fans, those who speculate on his return for the film Supergirl, which will tell the story of Kara Zor-El (with a plot independent of the “Arrowverse”), to which the actor has commented that he was not aware of your participation for another project.

“Wow, that is interesting. I swear, I’m not playing, right now I have just given the news [de que habrá una película de Supergirl]. I will have to look for it. How to be Zod again? I don’t know, it has been a while. I’m a little more old and crusty now, I don’t know if I could do all the movements. But, I say this with all seriousness, really I loved working with Zack Snyder, and that was something that was very good for me. I don’t know who’s going to make this film Supergirl, but in truth I cherish that experience with Zack. It is a great subject,” said the Gold Coast Bulletin.
