In what way could Michael Shannon’s General Zod return?
It was very apparent that Michael Shannon’s General Zod succumbed to his inevitable death man of Steel hence the question of his return is quite understandable. The answer to that is just as easy considering the film would explore the different points of view of Clark Kent and Superman. Zod was a huge influence on the character, so there’s always a chance he’ll show up in the form of a flashback sequence.
Another outlook is that there could be a possibility of Zod being cloned and then showing up. Cloning is not a new concept in the world of Superman as Connor Kent is a clone of Lex Luthor and Superman together. So it’s not out of the question that Shannon’s character will be cloned.
