'Justice League' has seen better days. The film was put on hold and then the script was tossed in the garbage heap, all while Marvel moves full steam ahead on Phase 2 of the cinematic universe including, but obviously not limited to, 'The Avengers 2.' And now if new rumors are to be believed, Warner Bros. has put 'Justice League' on the way back burner. How way back? How about 2021?

'Man of Steel' has a villain any Superman fan will recognize: General Zod. Played by Oscar-nominee Michael Shannon, Zod was famously seen in 'Superman II' and introduced the classic line, "Kneel before Zod!" But is there another Superman bad guy in 'Man of Steel?' One that the filmmakers are trying to keep quiet? There very well may be and that top secret villain may have been spoiled with details on the new 'Man of Steel' toy line. Potential spoilers ahead...
As 'Man of Steel' was casting, the film hit all the classic Superman notes - Lois Lane, Perry White, Jor-El, Ma and Pa Kent - with one exception: Jimmy Olsen.
