Uh oh. Man of Steel’s General Zod has a message for Earth, and it ain’t pretty.

We’re still a few months away from Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, but the viral marketing campaign is ramping up full force, and a new clip featuring Zod (Michael Shannon) has leaked out, and the Kryptonian general is none too happy with Kal-El.

The clip features Zod issuing a decree to the people of Earth, that we’ve been harboring one of his citizens and he wants him back. This could be a hint at Zod’s motivations for coming to Earth, and how he’ll be interacting with humanity in general. What better way to issue your demand than through the mass-media system already in place? It's static-filled, but that just adds to the mystery. Snyder and the studio seem to be taking great care with how this movie is presented, from the specific tone of the trailers to this eerily sinister viral content.

Check out the clip below and let us know what you think:

Man of Steel opens June 14.
