A list of licensed Lego sets features one called 'Superman Black Zero Escape', reports Screen Crush.
The original Black Zero was a villain who was responsible for the destruction of Superman's home planet Krypton.
Another version was an alternate reality clone of Superboy, while various Kryptonian organisations - criminal and otherwise - have also borne the name.
The previously announced villains of Zack Snyder's movie are General Zod (Michael Shannon) and Faora (Antje Traue).
'Black Zero' is alternately rumoured to relate to the Phantom Zone, which was reported to have been renamed the Black Zone for the film.
Man of Steel will debut on June 14, 2013.
