Michael Shannon recently joked that he had to wear flipper hands on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (as he says in the quote below he was never actually on the set even though he appeared in the Comic Con trailer). However, he did confirm that he did voice work for one of 2016’s biggest films, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Shannon is quoted as saying the following:
“I wasn’t there. It’s a really awkward situation—I’m in the trailer for a movie that I didn’t work on. I went over and did some voice-over stuff because it’s like that ghost thing. But I don’t know if I’m supposed to say that. I get very nervous.”
In Man of Steel, Jor-El (played by Russell Crowe) appeared as an A.I.-like entity. This could be similar to the “ghost thing” Mr. Shannon is alluding to.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is officially released March 25th, 2016.
Thoughts on this news? Are you looking forward to hearing Shannon’s voice in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?
