Michael Shannon is set to appear on the big screen as General Zod in the new Superman movie Man of Steel and he has appeared in a rather impressive costume. However, Michael has been talking about the armour and has revealed that the whole thing was completely CG.

Shannon told Collider, "I never wore the armor. That is a CG outfit, I think I can say that without getting assassinated, yes. Honestly, the armor would be very heavy – like in Iron Man, Downey Jr.  doesn’t ever wear armor – Oh, but there is a guy who wears it. I know the guy, the guy who was the Iron Man double, who had to wear that freakin suit was on Man of Steel and he said it was a freakin nightmare, it’s so freakin heavy."
 
He added, "They wanted me to have freedom of movement and if I would have actually been wearing a giant metal suit I would have been walking around like this, you know?  So every time you see me in that metal suit just close your eyes and imagine me in an Arlequino outfit; green, red, blue, with the little tight around the midsection. Yeah, we all looked like bunch of dorks."
