Shannon explained, “Well, it had to happen eventually, right? Either that or fade into obscurity! It's good to do something like this. It's good to take on that kind of responsibility, be a grown up, be able to feel that pressure and be OK with it. And, let's face it, it's not neuroscience!”
He added, “I don't see what more could be happening. Put it that way. Unless I receive a medal from the President! But you're always reluctant to get too proud of your accomplishments in this business. It can all go south in the blink of an eye.”
Michael Shannon will star alongside Henry Cavill as Clark Kent aka Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White in the Zack Snyder directed Superman movie Man of Steel. Man of Steel is set to be released worldwide on June 14, 2013.
