General Zod Does Not Have Flippers in Batman V Superman


Man of Steel Superman KillingThe other week a quote came out from Michael Shannon where he said his General Zod costume had flippers in Batman V Superman. It was part of a story of him being stuck in a bathroom and not being able to open the door because he had flippers on his hand. Even if it were true, it’s not huge news because that sort of thing could just be part of a motion capture suit replaced later by CG.

Michael Shannon explained to The Daily Beast that he was just trolling:

“Somebody 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,” Shannon said with a baffled smile. “That is so obviously a complete bullshit story, right? But people took it seriously.”

When the story came out it definitely did go viral and a lot of people made up some crazy theories about why Zod would have flippers in Batman V Superman, but it turns out the story itself was false.
