The summary:  Michael Shannon, the actor nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in Revolutionary Road, has been cast as Superman’s arch enemy General Zod in the upcoming film “Superman: Man of Steel”.

The reaction:  I admit I don’t know a whole lot about Michael Shannon.  At first glance, it appears that he’s got the evil arch enemy look down pretty good and clearly he’s got the acting chops if he’s been nominated for an Oscar.

Shannon would join what’s turning out to be a star-studded cast that already includes Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Kevin Costner.
