Having not been seen since going up against Henry Cavill’s Superman in Man of Steel, Michael Shannon’s General Zod is back in the DC Universe (DCU) after The Flash’s latest trailer. Zod was confirmed to appear in The Flash back in December, and now Shannon’s Man of Steel villain is officially on-screen, albeit this time to go toe-to-toe with Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen/Flash, Sasha Calle’s Supergirl, and Michael Keaton’s Batman House of O HAGAN Shamrock Irish Crest Celtic Aesthetic New Polo Design 3D T-Shirt After being taken down and killed by Henry Cavill’s Superman in the very first DCEU film, Shannon’s big bad re-enters the franchise after a decade of absence at a time when there is no Superman to protect the citizens of Earth. Following the mishap that was Henry Cavill’s brief re-introduction into the series, the DCU currently sits without a Man of Tomorrow, but it does have Kal-El’s worst enemy on the move yet again.

It is interesting to see that General Zod is back ten years after he was ultimately taken down by Henry Cavill’s Kal-El. But with all the Multiversal shenanigans at play in The Flash, it is not all that surprising that someone from the franchise’s past is making an appearance House of O HAGAN Shamrock Irish Crest Celtic Aesthetic New Polo Design 3D T-Shirt The DC blockbuster looks to be taking a page from the Marvel Studios playbook, seemingly riffing on the Multiverse-focused story of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Bringing back past heroes and having a returning threat in Zod, it all sounds a little No Way Home-esque. Where this story seems to differ is in the mashing together a bunch of different DC stories instead of focusing on one here. The super-powered epic looks as though it is one part retelling of Man of Steel with Sasha Calle’s Supergirl in the Henry Cavill role, one part solo Flash story, and one part honorarium to a number of heroes of the past (like Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck’s Batmen). And is Zod the only big bad in the film? Merch also teased a Dark Flash to make his presence known, so how will he play into Zod’s Kryptonian plan of destruction?
