I can’t imagine too many situations more terrifying than being in the presence of one of General Zod’s ridiculously loud (and foamy) pee sessions… and yet, a handful of wild youths were in that very predicament.
After driving to an LA theatre, Terence Stamp (the original Zod) went for a squat… or stand… I haven’t really decided if he’s a “sit down and peruse Reddit while I pee” type of guy or a “I’ve yet to discover the glory of sitting and peeing” chump. In any case, as the old thespian went to wash his hands (and I doubt this part of the story, because… who really washes their hands?) he overheard a group of men discussing Zack Snyder’s MAN OF STEEL:
“I spent an hour and a half driving down here from Ojai, and the first thing I wanted to do when I got out was take a leak. I go into the men’s bathroom and there’s a whole load of guys – obviously, ‘Man Of Steel’ had just turned out. So I take a pee, and I start washing my hands, and there’s about 10 or 12 guys there, and they’re talking about ‘Man Of Steel’ One says, ‘Well, I don’t know. If they’d have, like, peeled the buildings off the screen I wouldn’t have been surprised, you know?’ Another says, ‘It was all so loud.’ Then the guy down at the other end, who was only a little guy, said, ‘Yeah, yeah!’ And he said ‘It really wasn’t as good as the first one, was it?’”
“I just couldn’t resist,” laughed Stamp, “I said, ‘You’re a very discerning man.’ And as soon as they heard the voice they said, [screaming] ‘Oh my God! It’s General Zod!’”
I say we resurrect Celebrity Deathmatch and pit Classic Zod against Michael Shannon’s. Although the latter would probably win based on his fancy, shmancy CGI moves… I’d still like to see old man Terence throw down the fisticuffs.
