Just how it will play out in MOS when these Kryptonians fly in their spacecraft into our region of space remain to see. Superman definitely does not have any problem with exposure to the space.
We have only seen a very limited exposure to space on Supes' part. It is arguable that is still in the upper atmosphere in the shot we have seen with plenty of solar energy around. It's not clear yet how long he can stay in space for or how far he can get away from the sun and survive in a vacuum. It will be interesting to see how they deal with those issues.

Wanna see Wave 2 of the Movie Masters? Hear's Faora:





Superman with Key accessory. The key is actually an addition for kids to actually wear to replicate how Clark wears the key around his neck in the movie.

That Zod armor and helmet is sooooooooo cool and menacing at the same time.

Yeah and it's a much better head sculpt than in Wave 1.

If I told you I'd have to kill ya'.....nah man, I included the source above.

Looks like the guy is already getting them in the mail from somewhere so the timeline will probably see Wave 1, officially, in stores May 1st and then Wave 2 June 1st.

Zod's helmet looks like it is going to emerge from his armour kinda like the helmets in the lost in space movie. Maybe the suit collapses down in a similar way.

I'm starting to think the visor we saw on the other statue might have just been because its one of those sensory overload cover things

The first batch of info (the list of 7 MM figs) came from a confidential email sent to certain retailers that simo leaked. The pictures of wave 2 are from this guy who lives in brazil who bought wave 2 and leaked the pics on another board.

That shot of Superman flying around Earth - judging by the distance of Superman from Earth, he's definitely on the other side of the Karman line that defined the boundary between the Earth's atmosphere and the outer space. That's unless the filmaker took creative license.

I agree on the part that we do not know how long Superman can reasonably stay in the outer space.

Ugh... Couldn't they do a better face sculpt for Faora?

Armoured Zod is just badass.

the wave 2 Zod is SO much better looking than Wave 1 it's not even funny!

Wave 2 Supes looks the same ,except he definitely has a new cape.Wave 1 is billowing more at the ends. this one is closer to the body.
