One would assume that while the content of Zack Snyder's was divisive to say the least, its fight scenes and muffled screams of "Martha" would've been enough to keep a person awake — especially if that person was an old friend of the franchise, and an unnervingly realistic replica of that person's corpse actually featured in the movie — but apparently not.

Perhaps Michael Shannon was secretly so pissed that brutally snapped his neck in that his body went into shut down mode, but that was not his version of the story. He revealed the "truth" to Fandango this week:

"You’re gonna get me in trouble, man! People ask me about this all the time. Okay, I’ll tell you the god’s honest truth. Zack [Snyder] is gonna kill me for this – he’s gonna kill me. I watched it once and I fell asleep."

OK, so BvS was hardly the most thrilling movie on this planet, but falling asleep? Really? Yes, really. Although he did have a legit reason:

"I was on an international flight and I was tired. I shouldn’t have been watching it on a plane. But I never go to the movies anymore! I don’t have time to see anything. I used to go to the movies all the time when I was 20 years old and wasn’t working 10 days a week."

Fair enough, watching any movie on a plane's tiny screen is hardly ideal — especially if you're working more days in a week than there actually are! That said, I wouldn't want to be in his shoes if, or rather when, Snyder sets Aquaman on him, would you?

What do you think Michael Shannon's punishment should be?
