    Looks like that thread that began at the licensing expo a while back had accurate information in it. It described Zod's shield as a crescent moon or omega type symbol back then, and looking at the toy, it seems accurate.

    It does look badass but WBs should have done a reveal pic like Batman did with Bane and Catwoman of Zod

    Definitely. I'm hoping Snyder may do some character posters now that we're fairly close to release.

    Zod's shield not looking like a Z.Why should it, That's a kryptonian Z, It do kinda look like a disfunctional S.Almost bizarro like.

    Maybe its just me but I get a strong vibe from zod's symbol of the old hammer and sickle emblem from the former soviet union.

    Totally BadA$$! That is exactly how I've always wanted to see a live action Superman. He looks like he does in the comics I love. Henry easily pulls off that look they illustrated. :woot:

    I dont think its accidental. I think they wanted it ( the symbol ) to ooze fear and oppression.

    I don't think it was accidental either.

    But the “no, it's Z - for Zod” interpretation will come in handy when WB tries to sell MOS to the former-Soviet markets. :hehe:

    Action figure makers have never found a satisfactory answer to the fact that Superman does not need a surf board or rocket launcher.

    I still think immediately of an Omega. The last letter of the Greek alphabet, and what is the last letter of the English alphabet? Z, the first letter of Zod, and like Superman, is inside his shield.

    The hair and chain hair is spot on, The side of it is spot on.He looked big in the set pic we seen and he about 6''4.The face can get a lil better, but beside that it look badass.

    If Superman tears a motorcycle in half with his bare hands in the movie, I will be a very happy camper.

    Oh and you just know Lex is gonna use Zod's armor as his Power Suit in a sequel.
