We might be stretching things a little too thin when we say there are some potential 'Man of Steel' spoilers hidden in the upcoming Superman toys... but what if we're not? Work-in-progress commercials for Mattel's latest line of toys, which are said to tie into Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' movie, have leaked online, one of which features the rumored appearance of Black Zero from the comics... but it's not what you think.
Other than the footage of 'Man of Steel' we saw at Comic-Con, and the two teaser trailers we saw featuring the voices of both Clark Kent's human father (Kevin Costner) and his Kryptonian father (Russell Crowe), we've still yet to learn the details about what major trials Superman will be facing in Zack Synder's movie reboot. Thankfully new information has seemingly been revealed from a source we all love so much -- LEGO!
As with 'The Avengers' and 'The Hobbit' promotions, LEGO leaked the names of their primary sets that will be sold as accompaniments to its corresponding films. This year, they revealed what can be expected from their 'Man of Steel' sets and may have, perhaps unknowingly, hinted at the possibility of another villain for Superman to face other than Zod.
Though the film isn't due out until June 14, 2013, that doesn't mean we won't get a steady stream of promotional material for Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' until it comes out. It's only fair: they've been shooting since August of 2011 and, with shooting scheduled to finish in February, they should be in post-production now. It's been quiet on the 'Man of Steel' front but now we have a new image from the film - a banner showing off the new Superman's shield.
