"Zod is not only one of Superman's most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don't. Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role," director Zack Snyder said in a statement.

Henry Cavill is to play Clark Kent/Superman in the film.

The cast also includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Diane Lane as Martha Kent and Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent.

Michael Shannon was nominated for a supporting actor Academy Award for his work in "Revolutionary Road."

He was most recently seen in the HBO drama series "Boardwalk Empire."
