The actor will only have a cameo in the film. During the production the villain got stuck in a porta potty. Shannon recounts how the strange incident occurred.
Shannon was in his costume and couldn’t use his fingers due to wax flippers. Shannon confirmed he had wax flippers on his hands as part of his costume.
Due to the wax flippers Shannon couldn’t open the door. Shannon could then hear the director Zack Snyder calling for him. The whole crew was standing around looking for him while he was stuck.
Shannon was kicking on the door with the flippers and shouting to be let out. All the while Snyder was getting pissed off due to Shannon’s absence.
“I was in my costume, and I couldn’t use my fingers because in the sequel I have flippers instead of hands,” Shannon told Vulture at a screening for 99 Homes hosted by Peggy Siegal.
“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 fuck is he?' and the whole crew was standing around. I was like, knocking on the door with my flippers, 'Let me out of here!'”
Fortunately for Shannon the craft service guy became his hero. The craft service guy rescued the villain from the porta potty. If the door hadn’t been opened for Shannon, the actor would probably been fired.
