Experts Weigh in on SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL Casting So Far

ZOD in SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL

After Michael Shannon was announced as the new General Zod in Superman: Man of Steel over the weekend, the opinions came fast and in some cases furious. Fans praised and damned the casting, and argued about whether Zod was the best villain choice.

MTV News's Splashpage, which covers the ins and outs of comic book movies, decided to get the expert opinion on the reboot film. Their own editor Rick Marshall, Erik Davis of Movies.com and Fandango, and Newsarama's editor Lucas Siegel give their thoughts on Shannon, Zod, and the cast as a whole up to this point. Check out MTV's video below for the divided opinion on the inclusion of the evil Kryptonian, and what it's like to have a new Superman movie with some superstar actors.
