Calm yourselves, Michael Shannon won't have flippers in Batman V Superman

Last month, if you recall, the absolutely bonkers story of Michael Shannon revealing that he wore flippers on his hands during the filming of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE made the rounds. At the time I mentioned that it was entirely possible that Michael Shannon was just messing with us and it turns out, that's exactly what he was doing.

While speaking with The Daily Beast, the actor set the record straight and revealed that he made the entire thing up.

Somebody was asking me about this in New York and I made up some ridiculous bullshit answer about how my character Zod has flippers, and this went viral on the Internet or something and people have been asking me about that. That is so obviously a complete bullshit story, right? But people took it seriously.

Certain people did take it rather seriously but, despite the now proven falsehood, it definitely made for some entertaining fan theories. While Michael Shannon won't be donning flippers anytime soon, he will have a presence in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, Shannon said that "the thing about the whole Krypton universe, apparently, is that even when you destroy them, there are ghosts, the first [film], Jor-El is there even though he’s been dead for lord knows how long. I went over and did some voice-over stuff because it’s like that ghost thing. But I don’t know if I’m supposed to say that. I get very nervous." So that's that I suppose...unless, he's just messing with us again...oh god, I don't know what to believe anymore!

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens on March 25, 2016.

People are so gullible

It's probably the fact he's turned into some form of Doomsday and his cgi flipper hands are actually bone in the movie.

Anyone else read his statement in his voice?

The guy is one of the best character actors working today (if not the best) and I do hope we get to see his transition from Zod to Doomsday in this. Would be a crafty idea from DC to have Doomsday originate from Zod's genes or Zod himself.

Eh, I never believed it. I figured it was a joke.

Shannon is one to throw out BS to joke around from time to time. He did similar stuff during MoS. None of this matters though as I am still worried about the direction of DC films all forcing themselves to be more moody than a 15 year old goth girl. I hope they don't have more than 10 minutes of brooding heroes. We know Superman's favorite pastime is to hover and brood. Batman seems like he will be brooding atop some buildings. There is only so much forced brooding one guy can take in a

There is only so much forced brooding one guy can take in a superhero movie. It's one of the reason TASM series failed. Peter was just a brooding little punk, as was Electro and Kid Goblin.
