While director Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. have done a great job keeping most of the secrets for Man of Steel, one thing was always going to be a problem they couldn’t avoid: merchandizing. No matter what a studio does to keep everything under wraps, once the toys start to be displayed, everything is quickly revealed. And today is no different.
Thanks to Toy Fair opening their doors in New York City this morning, we’ve gotten some great new looks at the costumes for Superman (Henry Cavill), Jor-El (Russell Crowe), General Zod (Michael Shannon), and Faora (Antje Traue). While we previous posted toy images of General Zod and Jor-El, they were the smaller action figures and the ones today are 1:6 scale statue’s, which feature more detail. Hit the jump to take a look at the images. Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Man of Steel:
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
