New Superman logo revealed for 'Man Of Steel'

New Superman logo revealed for 'Man Of Steel'

The logo for new Superman movie Man Of Steel has been revealed.

An updated version of the iconic 'S' logo has been designed to promote Zack Snyder's forthcoming reboot of the superhero classic.

Unveiled overnight, the new insignia sees the logo from Superman’s chest rendered in burnt red metal, over a grey steel background.

Man Of Steel promises a more naturalistic take on the comic book sources, in line with Christopher Nolan's Batman films. Snyder, who previously directed superhero movie Watchmen, said recently; "I love making genre movies because genre movies have the potential to be the biggest movie. Watchmen is a crash course on the rules of the why of superheroes, so for me now, to go and do Superman it's like 'Okay, I got that, I know why.'

"Now I can make, I think, a Superman movie that gets at him and makes him relevant and you can care about him and be something that you wanna see and not go 'That's a joke, he’='s got his glasses on so you can't recognise him'".

Henry Cavill will play the lead role, with Amy Adams cast as Lois Lane and Michael Shannon playing the villainous General Zod. Man Of Steel is set for release in June 2013.
