We really don't know much about Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman film Man of Steel, other than the fact that Clark Kent goes from an Alaskan crab fisherman to Superman. Somewhere in between he meets Lois Lane and fights Michael Shannon as Zod. It's actually pretty impressive how well the studio has been able to keep a lid on the actual story of the film.
It looks like we might have a little more information on the film, and maybe one of the film's villains has been revealed thanks to a list of LEGO playsets that can be found on Screen Crush. That villain is.... Possible SPOILER ALERT....
Black Zero. Check out the list below...
76000 Arctic Batman vs. Mr.Freeze – Aquaman on Ice
76001 Batman vs. Bane – Chase with Tumbler
76002 Superman Metropolis Showdown
76003 Superman Battle of Smallville
76004 Spider-Man – Hunting with Spider-Cycle
76005 Spider-Man – Mission at Daily Bugle
76006 Iron Man Extremis
76007 Iron Man Malibu Mansion
76008 Iron Man vs Mandarin
76009 Superman Black Zero Escape
Most of the set titles listed above seem to involve upcoming movies, but there's a couple of them such as Aquaman and the Spider-Man sets that don't seem to fit in with any movies. So you never know, there's a chance that the Superman Black Zero Escape set might not have anything to do with the movie.
Black Zero is the super-villain directly responsible for destroying Krypton, and in the comics, he came to Earth, threatening to destroy the planet as he did Clark Kent’s home planet. We previously heard that the war of Krypton would be a big part of the story, and if that's true it's easy to imagine that Black Zero could be involved.
All will be revealed on June 14th, 2013 when the movie is released. Until then, let us know what you think about the the possibility of Black Zero being included in the movie!
Here's the synopsis that's been released:
Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
