'Man of Steel' was "Socially Relevant" According to Michael Shannon
Man of Steel had mixed responses from a lot of people, yet is probably seen in a better light compared to the storm that hit after Batman v Superman arrived. Nevertheless, Michael Shannon has given some insight as to how he sees the film, and what coerced him to play its villain.
“I looked at ‘Man of Steel’ as a very socially relevant movie, not necessarily a comic-book movie. Here’s a story about some people, a civilization. They lived on a planet and used up all the resources and destroyed the planet, and they thought the way to solve the problem was just to go get another planet. You hear people bandying that idea around these parts from time to time."
