Man of Steel is currently shooting in Vancouver, working towards a June 14, 2013 release date. Actor Michael Shannon, who portrays General Zod in the superhero tale, recently spoke about his costumes for the villain. Here's what he had to say below, revealing he has actually worn two different costumes on set.
"There's two different modes. There's something that I have to wear a motion-capture suit for, because if I actually wore it, I wouldn't be able to move. It's a very big thing. I actually don't know what it's going to look like, I just know that it's very cumbersome. There's another thing that I wear that's an actual costume. It's pretty simple. There's no paisley or anything."
The actor also talked about his preparation to play General Zod, which included reading a book about DC Comics' history.
"I don't read the comic book, although when I got the job, they sent me a giant DC Comics book that weighs about a ton. It's got the whole history of DC in it. It's fascinating, actually. I looked at it with my daughter. She's really fascinated by it. I remember Terence Stamp doing it. He was phenomenal. I have to try and figure out a way to do something different."
