MAN OF STEEL

In an interview with The Playlist, actor Michael Shannon (General Zod) compared "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder to Martin Scorsese, saying Snyder's "Superman" reboot is "edgy in a way like when Nolan took over the Batman franchise."

"Henry [Cavill] is a fantastic Superman, he’s got a little edge to him and he’s smart, clever and I had fun working with him," Shannon told The Playlist. "I think Zack is the master stylist, visually, I mean he’s up there with Scorsese in my book in terms of visual composition, orchestration, etc."
