Superman may be facing the villain Black Zero in Man of Steel.
A list of upcoming superhero movie-themed LEGO sets for 2013 from BrickSet reveals that there is one titled “Superman Black Zero Escape.” Black Zero was a villain from the comic books that destroyed Krypton, Superman’s home planet, and set his sights on destroying Earth as well.
While the LEGO announcement does not necessarily confirm that Black Zero will be in Man of Steel, it does seem odd that they would be releasing a set with that title to coincide with the release of the film. Of course, it also does seem odd that a set titled “Aquaman On Ice” is going to be released next year as well. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see if Black Zero pops up on the big screen when Man of Steel hits theaters on June 14, 2013.
