Michael Shannon Is "Profoundly, Utterly Unconcerned" About The Outcome Of The Title Fight In 'Batman v Superman'

Emotions are running pretty high at the moment around “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice,” with fanboys, critics, and pretty much everyone jousting over the response to Zack Snyder‘s movie. So leave it to Michael Shannon aka General Zod from “Man Of Steel” to give the most epic ¯_(ツ)_/¯ about the movie.

Vulture has collected the opinions of celebrities, actors, geeks, and more about who they want to see win the Batman v Superman throwdown, but frankly, Michael Shannon really doesn’t care. Here’s his answer in full. It’s pretty perfect: 

I’m so utterly unconcerned with the outcome of that fight. So profoundly, utterly unconcerned. I can’t even come up with a fake answer. I guess I have to root for Superman because he killed me, so I would hope that he would continue his killing spree and become like a serial killer Superman. That’s a new take on Superman. We’d all be in a heap of trouble if Superman was a serial killer. He could just wipe us all out. But then he’d be lonely.

Isn’t he already lonely?
Well, we’re all lonely.

Awesome. Michael Shannon is currently starring in “Midnight Special,” and I recommend you buy a ticket for that instead of ‘Batman v Superman.’
