Michael Shannon recently sat down to promote ’99 Homes’ and of course ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ came up where he revealed a startling revelation. Apparently in many of the interviews Shannon confesses he has just been “making up stuff” when talking about the DC film. If that is true, you have to wonder about the key piece of information that was revealed which made everyone think that he would end up turning into Doomsday or a creature similar to it.
So will he be reanimated as Doomsday or another villain in ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ or will his time on screen be spent in a body bag for someone to learn about Kryptonite being Superman’s one true weakness? It is hard to tell. What we do know is that he was asked specifically about when he mentioned wearing flippers on his hands on set for the film:
“Flippers? I think that might be a prime example of my scatological humor. People ask me a lot about Batman v Superman and I really don’t have anything to say about it, so sometimes I just make up stuff, which I’m sure Warner Bros. is really happy about.”
Could the entire Doomsday scenario be off the board or is he backpedaling at the behest of his corporate overlords? This isn’t the first time that he stated that the flippers were made up so there could be some truth to it. After, he was asked about his role in the film if there was anythinng past just being in a body bag:
“I run for President (laughs). Uh, no, you know, I think it’s better left unsaid. I mean, when does the movie come out?”
Looks like we aren’t going to get any details from him on the film! When he was told that the movie wasn’t out until March, Shannon comments:
“Yeah, I don’t want to spoil it for anybody. Yeah, no comment.”
That is an interesting change on his earlier comments. Do you think the flipper comments was part of his “scatological humor” or will we be seeing him return as a zombified General Zod or Doomsday on the big screen? Share your thoughts below!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ is slated to open in theaters on March 25, 2016.
