"Man of Steel" Rating, Character Changes

Some quick updates for Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" today, starting with the news that the Superman reboot has scored a PG-13 rating from the MPAA.

The rating was granted for "intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language."

Next up comes some casting talk. Lego versions of characters from the film have emerged at the London Toy Fair, one of which is the previously unannounced Kryptonian sleeper agent villain Tor-An.

One report indicates that "Sucker Punch" actor Richard Cetrone is playing the role.

Meanwhile one bit of talk that has already generated much discussion in the last few days is that a gender swap. Seems that actress Rebecca Buller ("The Playboy Club") has the role of Jenny Olsen, and the character is essentially serving as a replacement for long-time Daily Planet errand boy Jimmy Olsen.

In fact the "Man of Steel" trailer includes a shot of Buller running with the new Perry White (Laurence Fishburne).
