Will Black Zero Appear in ‘Man of Steel’?

It’s Friday and we’re reporting news garnered from toy promotions. Yup, it’s gonna be that kind of day. Though learning important nuggets of information about Hollywood’s biggest blockbuster from their toy tie-ins isn’t anything new. Previously we learned what The Lizard would look like in The Amazing Spider-Man from a PEZ dispenser and the climactic moments of The Dark Knight Rises were spoiled by their The Bat playset. So what movie is leaking information through their toys today? Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, and what we’ve learned is that a certain unexpected villain may face of against Superman by the film’s end.

LEGO has released information about their upcoming sets and something within the list (courtesy of Brick Set) could be a big clue as to what villain could show up,

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

Didja catch that last one? Superman Black Zero Escape. What could that refer to? The obvious guess is it’s referring to the character Black Zero, the Destroyer of Krypton. Familiar with him? Yeah, me neither. Here’s the quick summary from Screen Crush to get us up to speed,

In the comics, Black Zero came to Earth, threatening to destroy the planet as he did Clark Kent’s home planet. The villain met his demise when Superman released an alien criminal Jax-Ur, who sought to avenge his slaughtered people.

Eh, comics, amirite?

Do you think Black Zero will actually show up in Man of Steel or did the toy name just sound cool and that’s why LEGO went with it? Let us know what you think below!

Man of Steel hits theatres June 14, 2013.
