Man Of Steel Also Gets A Little Villain Spoiler Courtesy Of Lego

Just as a Lego playset led to new information and intrigue about the Iron Man 3 rogues roster, so it has with the new Superman picture, Man of Steel.

One of the movie tie-in kits that was on display at the London Toy Fair today included minifigs of:

General Zod, Colonel Hardy, Tor-An, Superman and Faora

Tor-An is a new addition to the film’s line up of evils. I understand that he was a Kryptonian who served Zod in the military then went undercover on Earth.

Could a Kryptonian sleeper agent be part of what Goyer and Snyder have planned? Or will Tor-An just be a black clad baddie, walking into town with Zod and Faora, letting lose on the Smallville locals?

The particular Lego set in question is called The Battle of Smallville, by the way. Another was called Metropolis Showdown and featured just Supes and Zod, and the Black Zero Escape comes with Supes, Zod and Lois.

Thanks to Brick Heroes for the info.
