Man Of Steel Has A New Logo
And a Super-Facebook page...

30 March 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Facebook

Though none of us were really in danger of forgetting that Man Of Steel is on its way, the movie’s still-distant 2013 release date and the multitude of superheroes clogging up our screens this summer means that the gang at Warners are taking every opportunity to remind us that the Big Blue Boy Scout in the cloak will soon be soaring into our cinemas. The next wave of promotion has arrived in a fairly standard way these days – with the film’s Facebook page, which bears a new logo. Talking of, have a look in the gallery below.

It’s a shiny new update to the more traditional logo, full of metallic sheen and with a slightly more alien look. And the picture arriving on the Facebook page means that we can likely expect more content as the movie creeps closer to release.

Just in case you did forget anything, Man Of Steel features Zack Snyder directing Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Supes, with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent and Michael Shannon as the scheming General Zod. Oh, and not forgetting Russell Crowe as Supes’ biological dad, Jor-El.

There’s plenty of time to see more from the movie, as it’s not out until June 14, 2013. That’s just the confirmed American date – though since it appears to be launching around the same time in chunks of Europe, we’re hopeful that means day and date over here…

I like it...

.......After the horror of Sucker Punch i pray that Mr Snyder can return to some kind of form with Supes.Looks like a ace cast,though and we love Henry at our house after the superb Tudors. More

Why bugger about with the logo.?? It is iconic in the extreme, and doesn't need changing.. A bit of a tweak for a new film maybe (and that's a big maybe), exact shade of red/yellow or something, but nothing more. I heard a story once that the Superman symbol was the most recognisable symbol after the cross (that would be THE cross) when shown to native tribes in the middle of the jungle.!! Leave it alone!!

While I definitely am not a fan of the new over designed SM suit, I do appreciate the look of this official SM logo. More

RE:
L: Alistair I'm really excited to see what Snyder does with the Superman universe. It's the first Superman film that will be free of the look and feel of the Donner universe so it will be great to have an all-new, fresh approach visually, thematically, dramatically and musically. Can't wait to see the trailer, which will surely be attached to TDK RISES. hundred times this! More

Same logo as Superman Returns, then.

Liking the organic curves...
... I remember seeing a pic of Crowe having a cheeky cigarette in his costume. Looked almost like it had been grown. Very cool. Snyder is fantastic at visualising his ideas but he's never had a great script. If the script for this is as good as it deserves to be it'll be amazing. I'm guessing it is that good because of the talent involved. Fingers crossed! More

for 1st teaser in front of TDKR. Really itching for a 1st proper look, see where they're going with this. More

Still unsure what to think of this movie. The fact that Zack Snyder is at the helm suggests it'll be awful. However - the casting is fantastic, plus Nolan is involved. Fingers crossed. More
