'The Iceman' Trailer: Michael Shannon Loves Playing Bad Guys, Talks 'Man Of Steel'

Posted: Updated:

VENICE, Italy — U.S. actor Michael Shannon's streak of playing bad guys continues in upcoming Superman film `'Man of Steel," in which he plays the superhero's nemesis `'General Zod."

Shannon said he nearly `'had a seizure" when director Zac Snyder tapped him for the role.

`'I would've never seen that coming in a million years," Shannon told The Associated Press at the Venice Film Festival, where he attended the world premiere Thursday of `'The Iceman," in which he plays a real-life Mafia hit man.

Shannon wouldn't say more about the upcoming film – except to say `'we all know what happens in Superman."

`'Man of Steel" is in post-production and due for release the middle of next year.
