Michael Shannon Cast as General Zod

More casting news for the upcoming "Superman" film. The already star studded cast now included Michael Shannon, who will be playing General Zod.  

Zod is not only one of Superman's most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don't. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role", said director Zack Snyder.

Others in the cast include Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent.
