Michael Shannon Turned Down ‘Star Wars’ Or ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Because Nah
Michael Shannon Turned Down ‘Star Wars’ Or ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Because Nah

 

After I randomly watched Bug and Shotgun Stories on the same night, Michael Shannon immediately became my favorite actor. He’s my favorite actor so hard when he was cast in Man Of Steel, I thought the movie was gonna be amazing lol. It wasn’t. It was shit. Zack Snyder ruined it. He basically says it in his interview with Fandango.

Fandango: These days it’s all about those big franchises, though. You were part of the DC Cinematic Universe briefly, but is that something you want more of? Are you looking for a big franchise to come on for the long haul?

Shannon: Nah. When I did Man of Steel I thought the story was interesting; I thought it was relevant. It was about a civilization that destroys the planet they live on and goes looking for another one. Ring any bells? That’s why I did it. I didn’t do it because I felt I needed a big comic book franchise – I honestly thought it was a beautiful story.

Then Snyder ruined any chance of Shannon ever being in another movie like that again.

Fandango: So no big Marvel or Star Wars movie for you then?

Shannon: No, I’m not really looking for that. They called me recently about some iteration – I won’t say – but some version of a movie that’s been made already countless times. They were gonna give me a lot of of money, but I was like nah. Big movie, too. But I have to think it’s an interesting story. If I don’t, I can’t do it. I won’t do it.

So he’s either talking about the new Star Wars movies or Spider-Man: Homecoming. I assume he wasn’t offered a role in Black Panther. Michael Keaton will be playing the villain, Vulture, in Spider-Man, and that doesn’t seem like a first choice to me. SO big franchise movies are out for Michael Shannon. That’s probably for the best. Although, he was technically in another Zack Snyder movie. Let’s hear his thoughts.

Fandango: The character you played in Man of Steel also had a cameo in another movie that came out around the same time, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Have you watched that at all?

Shannon: You’re gonna get me in trouble, man! People ask me about this all the time. Okay, I’ll tell you the god’s honest truth. Zack [Snyder] is gonna kill me for this – he’s gonna kill me. I watched it once and I fell asleep.

Same.

 

Here’s the Gigi Hadid pics from the 2016 AMAs I didn’t use yesterday. Using them here because they gave me a Man of Steel vibe when I downloaded them if you catch my meaning. My meaning is about my penis.

General Zod Has A Message For You

 

Let's just get this out of the way, most superhero movies are stupid. There's really no way to sugarcoat that. Even if they aren't, you can go on the Internet and read all the nerd rage about how it wasn't faithful to the graphic novel (a comic book with lots of pages), but I will go see Superman: Man of Steel BECAUSE MICHAEL SHANNON IS PLAYING GENERAL ZOD. Nobdy plays batshit crazy like Michael Shannon (see below), and this teaser premiered last night. A teaser that tells us Michael Shannon wants to kick Superman's ass, and if he can't he's going to destroy the world. He's a like Kim Jong-Un but with weapons that can shoot more than 100 yards.

Michael Shannon Is General Zod

So remember when I said “might“? Yeah, it’s official now. Michael Shannon is the villain in Superman: Man Of Steel. THR reports:

Warners Bros. announced Sunday that Shannon, who received an Oscar nomination for best supporting actor for Revolutionary Road for his performance as a mentally-troubled man and who has also been seen as a stern federal agent in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, has been cast as Superman’s nemesis. “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,” Snyder said. Zod, like Superman, is from Krypton, where he commanded its armed forces. The character appeared in both 1978’s Superman and its 1980 sequel Superman II, where he was played by actor Terence Stamp.

Much like Gary Oldman, even when he’s not playing someone batshit crazy, you fully expect Michael Shannon to bite the head off a squirrel then cover himself in peanut butter mid-sentence at any point during one of his movies. So, basically what I’m saying is, I’m cool with this. Also, when this movie comes out, I can start going up to random chicks and saying, “Kneel before Todd!“. I can’t wait! I know all those women are gonna love it!

Michael Shannon Might Be A Villain In Superman: Man Of Steel

[SinglePic not found]

With Henry Cavill, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner officially cast in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Superman: Man Of Steel, there is a possibility they might now shift their focus to casting someone who can act. Deadline reports:

….Legendary Pictures and director Zack Snyder are working on a villain for Superman: Man of Steel. I’m told there’s interest in Michael Shannon. Shannon is coming off a memorable first season in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, and he turned in a strong performance in Take Shelter, which Sony Pictures Classics acquired at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Neither the studio nor Shannon’s reps were helpful.

Michael Shannon is my favorite actor and kicks so much ass in everything that he is in, it’s hard to understand why is isn’t cast in everything. He could star in a movie called Michael Shannon Goes To Starbucks Then Turns Around And Goes Back Home Because He Forgot His Wallet, and I’d at least put it at the top of my Netflix queue.

How Michael Shannon wasn’t even nominated for an Oscar for Shotgun Stories (one of my favorite movies) is a tragedy worse than Japan. Mostly because Michael Shannon is playing me in a documentary about my life. You know, if I was white and had two brothers and lived on a farm. What, you think that means I’m jealous of my half-sister and half-brother? Well, one just recently had a baby. She takes it with her to go dress shopping for her junior prom. And I think the other one would eat a car if they put hot sauce on it. So, to answer your question, of course I am!
