Michael Shannon will not be saying "Kneel Before Zod" in Man of Steel

Nov. 6, 2012by: Niki Stephens

Michael Shannon will never do VH-1's BIG MORNING BUZZ ever again.

He will also not be saying the famous phrase once commandingly spoken by Terence Stamp in SUPERMAN II, "Kneel before Zod!" Don't know if that's a deal breaker for you, or not, but Shannon revealed that it would not be in MAN OF STEEL during an interview on VH1's MORNING BUZZ.

When host Carrie Keagan said they were going to show a clip from MAN OF STEEL, instead it went to a scene from 1993s GROUNDHOG DAY. Keagan then tried to get Shannon to say the "Wrestlemania" line from the film along with the "Kneel Before Zod" line to which he then broke it to her that the character would not be saying that in the film.

I usually don't insist on watching videos from MTV/VH1 because they are shitty, but this one is worth it for Shannon's disdain alone.

Also, don't ask him to compare codpieces.

After seeing him in the most recent episode of Boardwalk Empire I am really looking forward to seeing him as Zod.

Thought behind his expression

Shannon: "Why the f*ck am I here? Oh yeah... the studio put a gun to my head.
Keagan, you're an idiot. I'm sorry. Is this an interview? I'm confused. Why are we talking about my package?
Anyway back to Boardwalk Empire."

The video isn't working ("not available for viewers in your region"), but I have no problems with him not saying the line. It's one of those lines that's so iconic it eventually becomes something of a joke, and it may pull people out of the film if inserted just for the sake of a homage, and I'm sure Zod will have other menacing things to say. I'm looking forward to seeing Shannon in the part, because he's definitely proven he can play really scary people.

Ugh, Carrie Keegan SUCKS! I love Shannon for giving her the evil eye.

This annoying bitch used to always interview people on a YouTube channel and her videos would show up in the top ten every day because they'd use pictures of girls in bikinis, etc. as the freeze-frame image for the videos (remember the old days of YouTube? Ha!). But man, she was a terrible interviewer, and would always end up flirting with the male interview subjects and making horrible sex jokes. I always wondered where she went. Now I guess I know to avoid VH1 even more than I already do.
