New banner for Man Of Steel

Superman has a new logo

Given the size and profile of the project, we're surprised we haven't seen more than the single official still and handful of leaked pap shots thus far released from Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman reboot, Man Of Steel.

However, whilst we'll have to wait a little longer for another look at Henry Cavill's Kryptonian hero, Warner has whet our appetite with the release of a new banner for the film, featuring a shiny new take on the classic Superman logo.

Going for a kind of burnished bronze colour scheme, the new logo is (appropriately enough) nicely metallic, suggesting that Snyder's treatment will be a tough, no-nonsense affair. There's no yellow filling to be seen either, with Warner going for a leaner, more streamlined effect with this latest incarnation.

The whole thing is more than a little reminiscent of the title screens and posters used in Chris Nolan's Bat-series, particularly when it comes to the lettering. Subconsciously or otherwise, it makes you feel as though this one is going to be a big deal.

Also featuring Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon and Laurence Fishburne, Man Of Steel will open in the US on 14 June 2013, with a UK release expected shortly after. We can hardly wait...

      original comic books from the 1990s??? kids these days have very short memories - the original comic books were from the 1940s. Also Superman 3 was dump!! Smallville was so, so awful - they had an entire season building up to Superman vs Doomsday - then Superman took him out with 1 punch!!!? WTF was that about?

      woooooo!!! ok -- where did that come from? you have a difference of opinion with someone and they start calling you all sorts of names under the sun. Smallville was rubbish - the ruined potential of what could have been a truly great superhero tv show descended into dawson's creek with fast running around. superman 2 was excellent - superman 3 was awful - richard pryor was totally miscast

      TheKingofTourettes, has issues, you have to forgive him. His mouth is where his anus should be. Moving on. I like the logo. The Superman theme has not been kept, unless they have changed their minds. I'm sure they said they were using a new composition.

      @fipthetop - Don't take the bait, this guy is beyond ridiculous. I happen to totally agree with your opinions however, Superman 3 was a shambles (however was practically X-Men 2 quality when compared to IV: The Quest for Peace)!

      the guy has serious issues - i'm liking the logo - all we need now is a teaser trailer. however they're probably going to hold off to show it before the dark knight rises in july

      Hey fipthetop! I really thought Smallville was really decent given the obvious challenges to bring the story to the small screen over many episodes. I also thought as an attempt to expand the myth it had to be commended. Granted, there were some terrible seasons, but they made up for it with a satisfying conclusion. Agreed on all other points and LOVE the logo.

      Has anyone seen The Richard Donner cut? Is it better than Richard Lesters? I quite liked Smallville and Aquaman was just as useless in that as everything else lol.

      @Seedorf - i had wondered if they were going to ditch the theme. I know that they are trying to start from scratch and make it clear that this new film has nothing to do with the Reeves/Routh films, but i do hope they have some reference to the Superman theme in some form. Its got to be one of the most iconic themes of all time and is now as synonymous with Superman as the cape and tights.

      MisterAmj - i just got fed up with the wasted potential. The whole doomsday things just annoyued me soooooo much - massive build up, looked really promising, then one punch mikey and it's end of season! I did like green arrow though - decent character. the whole zod thing was all handled pretty well. The donner cut was ok - had some nice touches to it. the ending shows superman destroying the fortress of solitude which gave it a nice twist i thought. TheKingofCinema - you have major issues mate - it's a film forum. Why so angry? Also Superman Returns - just a grumpy emo guy picking up heavier and heavier things - great film there Mr Singer!! You should have stuck with X-Men 3

      I find Hadouken funny at times and find also a good read when he comments, while you Dalidab are just rude and don't care about anyones opinion unless it matches your opinion........ yes I am sure you will tell me to go F myself and die too. Sometimes I feel sorry for you, but then I read another of your comments and reminded how nasty you are.

TheKingofCinema:@fipthetop oh shut up you piece of s**t. yes I know that the original superman comics first came out in the 1940's. I meant the original comics that came out in the early 1990's of superman. plus its my opinion if I liked Superman 2 & 3 films & Smallville Series 6 to 10. so again shut your big mouth alright you absolute w****r. :) TheKingofCinema I think Indianabones is right here. Look at what fipthetop said and then look at your reply. Fipthehop gave his opinion on Superman material and you told him to "shut up you piece of s**t" and "shut your big mouth alright you big w****r". Learn to control yourself before you say something at the wrong time to the wrong person.

      What this forum needs is an "ignore user" button. Then everyone could just ignore whoever they wanted to and the world would be that little bit better. Logo looks ok, btw. :)

      I'm going way off topic here but I like the new logo and I'm glad we haven’t heard or seen too much of the film so far, I'm as guilty of looking at and reading all the spoilers for TDKR as the next person but cant help but feel a little bit sad after reading each one as I know it will take some of the excitement away as I finally get to sit in my seat as I watch the conclusion to (hopefully as obviously I haven’t seen the last one yet) the best trilogy of films I have ever seen (Star Wars fan's please be aware I know they are the most influential blah, blah, blah and I love them I just love the Nolan Bat film's more) but I doubt I will ever be as surprised and memorised by the reinvention of a character as I was with Batman Begins.

      I liked Smallville until that godawful ending ruined it forever for me...he didn't even wear the costume and we waited 10 blimmin years! Really think this one is looking very good though...
