Later this year Michael Shannon will be seen up on the big screen as General Zod, one of the most legendary villains in Superman's rogues gallery.

Michael Shannon has one hell of a screen presence. Whether its that he towers over his co-stars standing at 6'3", the fact that his jaw looks like it's made of concrete, or that he has a habit of playing mentally unstable characters, whenever Shannon is on screen you can't help but feel a little bit nervous.

The lead role of Kuklinski is being played by Boardwalk Empire's Michael Shannon, alongside a cast that also includes Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ray Liotta, David Schwimmer, and Elias Koteas. Evans will now take over the role of Robert Pronge, Kuklinski's mentor assassin.
