Think about it. WB wanted to go all out for this, and by all indications, so did snyder. would you really just have Zod and a couple of sidekicks as the main villains? sure it would/could work if done right, but adding Brainiac or someone else rises the stakes to a whole other level.
I'm also convinced we will see some cameos of other heroes, at the least, a mention.
No it doesn't. Zod and other Kryptonians have all of Superman's abilities, plus military training to go with it, on top of being very personal villains because they're his only connection to where he's from.

Adding another alien threat of equal or lesser power that's less personal not only doesn't add anything to the story, but makes the story more convoluted. They're making a Superman movie, not a Superman cartoon, not a DC Universe movie. Let that be awesome enough.
