General Zod Looks EXACTLY Like A Space Jockey in MAN OF STEEL


I’m not even exaggerating this time.

A new picture of Michael Shannon’s General Zod has surfaced, featuring him in a fully helmeted Kryptonian suit of armor, and wouldn’t ya know it… the dastardly villain looks exactly like a Space Jockey. Now, if you’re not familiar with that term (I’m judging your geek cred right now, feel it sear through to your bones), a Space Jockey is one of those massive white baddies from Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel, Prometheus. Remember that armor those Aryan badasses would wear? Yeah… they’re pretty damn similar to the Kryptonian designs that Man of Steel director Zack Snyder’s concocted. Check it out below:

Now, I’m not sure if I’m complaining about this example of copy/paste from Snyder, but I thought it’d be an interesting piece of news to share with you fine readers.

What do you think of the armor? Pissed because its somewhat generic? Stoked that its so badass? “Meh”?

I guess none of this really matters to the ol’ Zoderino, because he still thinks pretty highly of himself.
