These Toys Give Us The Best Look At Man Of Steel's Villain Yet


With Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel movie arriving on June 14th, more details of his take on Superman’s world are hitting the internet. Yesterday, among the trading cards, maquettes, and plushes at Toy Fair, we spotted your boy Kal-El and three other characters from the film in these gorgeous new toys from DC Collectibles.

They give the clearest looks yet at several characters, including the baddies Zod (Michael Shannon) and Faora (Antje Traue), and especially their robotic looking armour. Time spent in the Phantom Zone has clearly left Zod with a bright and sunny demeanor. Can’t wait to see him go blow for blow with Supes in that thing.

It appears Snyder hasn’t held back on injecting his dark, slick aesthetic into Metropolis. Russel Crowe’s Jor-El looks downright angelic (not to mention gun-toting) in his ivory getup, while his son is still regrettably without his signature red trunks. Clearly Jor-El did not store fashion advice in his crystal holograms. These 1:6 scale statues are due in spring of this year.
