Michael Shannon had an amazing performance as General Zod in Steel man and fans also admire how much of an impact his playing had. Steel man 2 can’t come faster as fans grow more excited to see Henry Cavill return as Superman after a long time. Naturally, that anticipation would only grow considering the film has yet to find a director, let alone a script. Although the film has no confirmed cast except for Cavill, theories have swirled among audiences, with Amy Adams to Michael Shannon returning for their roles.
Seeing that the film only has a green light to go and nothing else at the moment, speculation continues to grow. Considering James Gunn is open to considering people’s ideas for upcoming movies, chances are those headcannons will come true.

Michael Shannon’s General Zod Could Return With Henry Cavill In Man Of Steel 2
From now on, Henry Cavill man of steel 2 could have absolutely any wild number of returning characters because despite being named as a sequel, it was suggested as a reboot. It can also come into consideration as the flash would be a film that would set up the events of Flashpoint, which would change the DC Universe and what we know about it.
Flashpoint would specifically change all the ways of the DCU, and with it, provide more and more opportunities for directors to explore different angles of the same story. This could include the return of General Zod although Michael Shannon’s character died in Steel man. Fans themselves have expressed their desire to see the actor return to this role in some form, regardless of the events of the successor film. Not having confirmation, just yet, could easily work in fans’ favor as it opens up the possibility of Zod facing off against Superman again in a big battle that would leave fans stunned.

What Ways Could Michael Shannon’s General Zod Return?
It was very evident that Michael Shannon’s General Zod succumbed to his inevitable death in Steel man so the question of his return is rather understandable. The answer to that is just as simple considering the movie would explore the multiple angles of Clark Kent and Superman. Zod had a major impact on the character, so it’s still possible that it will come in the form of a flashback sequence.
Another perspective on this is that there could be a possibility of Zod being cloned and then appearing. Cloning isn’t a new concept in the world of Superman, given that Connor Kent is a clone of Lex Luthor and Superman combined. Therefore, the cloned Shannon character is also not out of the question.
