    I'd be kinda disappointed if Superman wore armor....but it wouldn't ruin the movie for me

    Who knows. These bloody toys are all over the place. Pisses me off. Another shows Supes with a black S-emblem. No scruples, man.

    Just like the Batman toys when I was a kid back in the 80s and early 90s. They create suits that aren't even in the movie...doesn't bother me so much, they just need to stay consistent

    Disappointed if Superman wore armour to defeat the bad guys. Particularly in his first movie.

    I'm assuming the armour is just for the toys but if he does use armour and there's a good reason for it then I'm fine with it.

    Maybe Kryptonian's are powerless inside Black Zero and he uses the armour in there or maybe its for a disguise.

    You may be right, but I think it could also mean that they're just using the same molds made for the Jor El figure. They might just be trying to get their money's worth out of it, rather than using it for just the one secondary character's figure.

    we're finally going to see it in live action! Oh, and speaking of that last image: MOS will have robots and that Black Zero (ship/weapon), so the question is:

    That has to be zod own personal robot since it has his symbol.Spoilers awhile back said jor-el had his own personal robots.
    Since kryptonians are so advance it make sense that they would have not, just robots, but intelligent robots.

    Gone a day and come home to discover some awesome TF photos!

    Cool to see the armored Supes prototype panned out and the MM packaged looks a lot better than MTV's reveal. Honestly Superman in armor being Jor-El's or not interests me and it offers up something new to see on screen.

    Wish we could get photos of all the other merch. Rubies costumes have their MOS gear there but no photos were allowed though according to SupermanHomepage they had a variety of costumes on display along with Supes and Zod's capes, gauntlets and accessories like crowbars etc.

    Anybody mention DC Collectibles didn't have a statue on display thats Superman Vs Zod coming out in July.

    There's an angle from the other side that completes the shield. Someone will surely be able to piece something together.

    Regarding if the 'Armored Superman' is just for toy line or not, somebody commented over on The Fwoosh forums said that for the Movie Masters line they had on display Superman, Jor-El and Zod along with a another Superman figure where the suit was different and featured a different head sculpt.

    Mattel wouldn't allow photos though so he couldn't take any.

    I think snyder wanted to put superman in armor, because he thought it was cool.A few months back he was talking about how nolan was telling him he couldn't do things just because he think it's cool.Nolan told him it had to have meaning, story.So if superman do wear armor it will be for a damn good reason.The robots can't be random, they have to be integrated into krypton society, so when zod bring them to earth it won't feel like something random, cool.We know why kryptonians wear armor, have weapons, ships ect.No powers on krypton.So when zod and co bring all that stuff to earth it won't feel unnecessary.

    Let's just hope they don't all die Phantom Menace style once he defeats Zod/Zero.
