'Superman' Stars Then & Now

Michael Shannon as 'General Zod'

Movie: "Man of Steel" (2013)

"Boardwalk Empire" star Michael Shannon was tapped to reprise Terrence Stamp's infamous villain, a Kryptonian general called Zod, in "Man of Steel." Shannon wanted to bring a different, less evil side of the character out in the movie. "I think Zod is typically thought of as a very rage-filled and hateful person," the actor told the Huffington Post. "The way we approach it, though, is that he just seems like a desperate person in a desperate situation."

Like Adams and Cavill, Shannon will reprise his role in the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" film. The actor is also currently starring on Broadway in the play "Long Day's Journey into Night." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photos: Warner Bros./Getty Images)
