Internet be crazy.
Earlier this month, the Internet literally flipped out over a Michael Shannon interview, who played General Zod in the last â€œMan of Steel.â€ He said in the interview that he flipper-for-hands in the â€œBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justiceâ€ movie.
â€œI was in my costume, and I couldnâ€™t use my fingers because in the sequel I have flippers instead of hands,â€ he said to Vulture blog. And that created mass hysteria and confusion.
In addition, there was a glimpse of General Zodâ€™s corpse in the trailer for the upcoming movie. So no wonder why the Internet has gone crazy.
Now Shannon is setting the record straight.
During a chat with The Daily Beast for â€œ99 Homes,â€ he said that he was surprised to learn that he was even in the trailer, because heâ€™s not really in the movie-physically that is.
â€œI wasnâ€™t there,â€ he said. â€œItâ€™s a really awkward situationâ€”Iâ€™m in the trailer for a movie that I didnâ€™t work on.â€
However, he did explain Zodâ€™s brief appearance will be similar to Russel Croweâ€™s Jor-El appearance after his death in â€œMan of Steel.â€ Admittingly, he did do some voiceover work for â€œBatman v. Superman,â€ but didnâ€™t suit up to shoot scenes. And there are no flipper hands.
â€œI went over and did some voice-over stuff because itâ€™s like that ghost thing. But I donâ€™t know if Iâ€™m supposed to say that. I get very nervous,â€ he said to The Daily Beast.
So how the flipper hands did came about? It was a complete lie he told to the interviewer earlier this month.
â€œSomebody 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,â€ Shannon said. â€œThat is so obviously a complete bullshit story, right? But people took it seriously.â€
Maybe the next thing the Internet will say that flipper-hands General Zod will be the villain in the next â€œAquamanâ€ movie. Why not?
