Hours and hours spent to fight against this actor Michael Shannon’s role as General Zod. It is not yet clear how the end of this struggle, but Russell Crowe seems to have prepared themselves well.
SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL This could be the toughest Russell film to date. “Cycling as far as 15 miles, for hours fighting against Michael Shannon. He is hard to beat. It’s hard to predict who will win, tomorrow we still have to fight again,” wrote Russell via Twitter. If she gets the role as General Zod, Russell Crowe in this movie get a role as Jor-El, Superman’s real father. As reported to Contact Music, Russell Crowe preparation for SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL is indeed very heavy.
Apart from having to lift weights almost two full hours each day, Russell also touched on foot or bike for hours. Heavier again, Russell also had to stop drinking beer habit. “Right now I quit drinking beer,” he explained. Although not a major role but it seems ration scenes this time Russell gained quite a lot too.
