Man of Steel action figures for Zod and Jor-El

[UPDATE: Additional pics of Superman action figures, a Superman vinyl figure, and the Lego box added to the gallery.]

We've been getting a lot of pics of Henry Cavill as Superman in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, but we've yet to get a good look at Michael Shannon as General Zod. There are head shots, sure, but not a full costume. The action figure for Zod gives us a first look at what he's dressed like. It's sort of like Superman but in black and with a vestigial hammer and sickle on his chest. Shades of the alternate reality/Elseworlds story Superman: Red Son, maybe? We also get a look at the Jor-El action figure, with Russell Crowe sporting some totally 1990s superhero armor.

I noticed Michael Shannon's looking a little handsomer here, as if this is an Elseworlds Michael Shannon action figure. Instead of Michael Shannon the indie movie star, this is Michael Shannon the CW heartthrob. In that alternate world, maybe his name is Shane Michaelson... or maybe that's just a young Josh Brolin. Similarly, I suspect this Jor-El action figure is actually Javert from the Elseworlds version of Les Miserables titled Les Miserables dans l'Espace. (Translation: The Sads in Space.)

Take a look at these two action figures as well as a Pop! vinyl figure (Elseworlds Simon Pegg) and some Legos (Elseworlds Duplos) in the gallery. Man of Steel comes out June 14. And if it doesn't do well, it may take the Justice League with it.

Superman 75th short screened at NYCC

Snyder offers up a BS excuse for the end of Man of Steel

The conclusion of Man of Steel was a bit off putting for many people as Superman is basically responsible for the deaths of thousands without blinking an eye until suddenly he cares for a random family in front of h...more

Max Landis also has opinions about Man of Steel

Man of Steel has certainly caused a ruckus with the Flixist staff. Hubes outright hates it, Matt liked it to a certain degree, Alec liked everything but the ending, I love pancakes, but we can all mostly agree that Man of St...more

Man of Steel features $2 trillion in overall damage

I'm probably the only person on staff who outright hates Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, which Matt enjoyed but also found problematic as a Superman movie. To me, Man of Steel is a film so joyless and unheroic that it makes Super...more

Some Like It Hot: Amy Adams

With Man of Steel hitting and missing with audiences across the world, I saw the perfect opportunity to write about one of my favorite things in the whole wide world: pretty redheads. Amy Adams is one of those women who reall...more

Has Superman lost his soul?

Critically, the reception to Zack Snyder's Man of Steel has been all over the place. Although the Rotten Tomatoes consensus says that it is "mostly successful" (something corroborated by our review), it is nonetheless consid...more
