Oscar-nominee, and just plain awesome, Michael Shannon has been selected to fill Terrence Stamp’s iconic shoes as General Zod in the forthcoming Superman re-re-boot (they’ve decided to ignore the previous reboot, and for good reason).  What does this have to do with Williams?  Well, as this article notes, Shannon’s manager is Byron Wetzel ’97.  Ain’t It Cool News, for one, “can’t think of anyone better for the role.”  Congrats to Shannon and to Wetzel on a role sure to raise Shannon’s profile.  See Shannon talk about Superman here:
