Here's a few quotes from Michael Shannon -- who plays General Zod in MAN OF STEEL -- about the film and wearing that CGI suit (via HUFFINGTONPOST.COM)...

"Itís going to blow everybodyís socks off. And I know theyíre probably pissed off, like Iím jinxing it or something and I shouldnít say that. Iíll knock on wood just out of deference to the gods, but the movie is solid. Itís gonna get the job done."

So, what about those CGI suits...

"I remember the first couple of days I was on set, I thought ĎThis is ridiculous. I look like an idiot. I donít look anything like General Zod. Iím a total failure.í I went over to the screen for playback and it was ridiculous. All of us were wearing pajamas, basically. And there was this neon green set of stairs that was supposed to be our spaceship. So you see us all marching down these neon green stairs in our pajamas and Iím like, ĎThis looks like a Monty Python skit.í And heís like, ĎI know right now it looks pretty silly, but, two years from now, itís going to look like the most badass thing youíve ever seen in your life.í And heís right."

MAN OF STEEL flies into theaters on JUNE 14, 2013!
