Not surprised. Pretty much every big Marvel and DC movie has ended up PG-13.

Here are some MOS toys, which give us an idea of what this movie's Zod will look like.

That's disturbing. It's Superman on a super version of Burton's Batmobile.

Why does Superman need a vehicle anyway?!

I think that's our first good look at Zod's shield though. Looks... interesting.

Just a shame the toys look so small and cheap. Hopefully they'll also have some decent larger scale ones...

I don't have a problem with it. As long as Superman still looks like Superman, I don't care how much they change the race, sex, or hair color of the supporting characters.

They've always been pretty thinly defined in the comics and movies anyway.
The only problem I have with it is that a potential female Jimmy Olsen already exists in Chloe Sullivan. They could have actually made the movie more, not less, diverse if they'd used Chloe and Jimmy.

He gets sponshorship money and part of the profit from the toy sales. One can't just live on a crabber's salary.

They wouldn't use Chloe just based on her being so closely associated with Smallville.

Then why are they using the Whitney character from Smallville? Because he was just in the first season and not all 10?

A female Jimmy Olsen is a very peculiar choice. Will Jenna get into bitchfights with Lois because they both fell in love with Supergoof? Will they turn the bromance between Clark and Jimmy into a romance?
