Zod won't have flipper hands but may be a ghost in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


Can't wait for the erotic pottery scene

You may recall a report the other week that Zod would have flipper hands in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Turns out Michael Shannon was just joking, though Zod might appear as a Kryptonian ghost in the film. I can't wait for the scene in the movie in which Zod, tenderly and lovingly, slides behind Superman and guides his hands at the potter's wheel. (Maybe Scott C. can draw it?)

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Shannon said flipper-Zod was "obviously a complete bulls**t story" that people surprisingly fell for. (I mean, come on, flipper hands would clearly be an impediment toward the proper fashioning of sexy earthenware from clay that warms at the touch, which is what we really want from this movie.) Shannon also noted that he appears in the trailer for Batman v Superman, but it's awkward because it's a movie that he didn't really work on. He elaborated on his role in the film:

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.

You know what helps me when I'm nervous?

Batman v Superman: The Clay of Sensuality comes out March 25, 2016.
