General Zod from MAN OF STEEL Issues Us a Warning

By AMC April 16, 2013

We are only two months away from the highly anticipated unveiling of the Zack Snyder-directed, Christopher Nolan-produced, "Man of Steel". Warner Bros. has just released a clever promotional video from General Zod, played by the very talented Michael Shannon.

In the staticky video, Zod is urging Earth, and specifically Kal-El (Superman), to turn himself over to him "within 24 hours or watch this world suffer the consequences". This gives us more of an idea as to the plot of the film and would explain why the man of steel was in handcuffs in a previous one-sheet.

I'm a big fan of videos like this that have minimal branding and just really leave you intrigued with the characters and tone. Well played, Warner Bros. From everything we've heard and seen thus far, we couldn't be more excited for this film. Keep it coming!

"Man of Steel" hits AMC Theatres on June 14th.
