On film, Michael Shannon is a scary man. It's why he was picked to play Superman's nemesis General Zod in this summer's Man of Steel.

In person however, Michael Shannon is a very nice man. Softly spoken and keen to dispel any assumptions you might have made about him, his bad guy persona is nowhere to be seen.

The Iceman hits cinemas on Friday
