Speaking to MTV, Man Of Steel‘s very own General Zod, Michael Shannon, had nothing but praise for star Henry Cavill, saying, “I always felt like I was in a scene with Superman. I never looked at him and thought that’s just somebody trying to be Superman — he felt like the real deal.

“I really admire Henry’s work ethic,” Shannon continued. “I really haven’t seen anybody in this business work quite that hard. Obviously it’s a tremendous responsibility – and an intimidating one – to wear that suit. But he had the confidence and the work ethic to accomplish it.”
