"Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice" cast member Michael Shannon shares a whimsical anecdote that seemingly reveals an unexpected alteration to his character's appearance.

In an interview with Vulture during a screening for "99 Homes," Shannon shared how he tried to escape 'a tight spot' on the set of "Batman vs Superman" after being trapped and unable to get out.

"I was in my costume, and I couldn't use my fingers because in the sequel I have flippers instead of hands," he narrated, adding that the wax flippers were already placed on his hands for the scene he was supposed to shoot.

"So I had these wax flippers on my fingers, and I couldn't open the door, and I could hear Zack [Snyder, the director] being like, 'Where's Shannon? Where the f**k is he?' he continued, saying that the entire crew was standing around.

Recalling that he was already screaming 'Let me out of here!' at the top of his lungs, Shannon then found his own superhero in the form of the "craft-service guy, who doesn't have the best craft service."

"He was actually paying attention to what was going on. He came over and he opened the door for me. Otherwise I would have gotten fired," he stated.

This innocent anecdote of a funny case of costume misfortune has seemingly spoiled some details about the 41-year-old actor's role in the film.

Shannon, as told by Comic Book, will be reprising his role as General Zod in "Dawn of Justice." Reportedly, he will be engaging in a battle with the "Man of Steel" after his corpse was stolen and resurrected in a new form by Lex Luthor -- in the hopes of exploiting Superman's weakness.

According to the outlet, Luthor's experimentation then "triggers the Doomsday genome," leading to the reanimation of Zod's corpse into becoming Doomsday, a mindless killing machine described in the comic book "The Death of Superman."

As the comic book title implies, Doomsday is the only powerful being who was able to kill Superman.

Curiously, the Doomsday introduced in the comic book was not introduced with a flipper, making Shannon's narration a source of confusion.

"Well, I haven't seen the trailer either, so I don't know what I am in the trailer. I could be a toaster, or a Porsche, I don't know," Shannon told Vulture, a statement which would possibly confuse spoiler-hungry fans even more.

"Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice" is set to hit theaters on March 25, 2016, Comingsoon.net reported.
