The evil General Zod, made his debut in the film’s latest trailer. General Zod, played by Michael Shannon, is also from his home planet and possesses similar superpowers in the glow of the earth’s yellow sun.

“You are not alone,” General Zod’s voice booms as the clip opens. That must be, at least, somewhat reassuring. Previous trailers have focused on Superman’s struggle with an identity crisis. Now, he has someone to relate to. But not in a good way.

Zod is determined to destroy the earth if Superman doesn’t give himself up. They way he talks, Superman is made out to be some kind of fugitive.

“I have journeyed across an ocean of stars to reach you,” the general continues. “Your world has sheltered one of my citizens. He will look like you, but he is not one of you.”
