Wanna see the new logo for Man of Steel?

Mar. 29, 2012by: Niki Stephens

What a nice surprise!

After numerous set pictures and only one official image, we finally have something new! A logo has been revealed on this banner for MAN OF STEEL.

How do you feel about the darker, gritter side of Superman? Personally, I'm liking the shield. The colors against the background of the banner really pop for me. It also make me think about the progression of the shield over the years.

Though the film doesn't come out until June 14th of next year, I'm hoping to see some clippage or a teaser trailer at some point. I'm salivating over any little something on this film. Check out the banner below and let us know your thoughts on it.

"A young reporter named Clark Kent roams the world covering various news stories. When he is compelled to use his secret powers to intervene in a crisis in West Africa, he returns to Smallville to learn more about his origins and the hero he was born to be."

Extra Tidbit: I'll be the first to admit I liked Brandon Routh as Superman/Clark Kent. James Marsden also always has issues with his comic counterpoint (Jen Grey and Lois Lane). At least he gets to assert his machoness in SEX DRIVE.

re tidbit, Routh was the replacement, that's for sure, God damned singer, so fucked up. One worry about this project, why make Zod a villain again? ugh. Brainiac.

I don't get how anyone can get too worked up over this. It's the Superman logo! Only slightly different. What's the big deal haters?

I have a good feeling

let's face facts; Routh got screwed. he did a good job, and with a better script and Reeve's costume there would be no question he would still be Superman. What this movie has going for it is a director who loves comic books and goes at it from a fan perspective, a solid choice in Cavill (the guy can act and is friggin' huge)a great supporting cast (c'mon, Costner as Pa Kent? That is genius)and though slight changes were made, a good looking suit...though the trunks will be missed, they never

Today, news is presented to us differently, we watch it and see it happen in front of us on a global scale. allowing Clark to see the problems of the world up close and that inspiring him makes sense and allows him to be what he should be, the planet's protector, not just metropolis

I LOVE this new logo. It respects the old and differentiates itself just enough to give it it's own original feeling.

Can't wait to see ANY footage from this film. This is going to be the Batman Begins of Superman films.

I don't think, imo, that they messed up the Superman Returns shield logo as they didn't mess up that one per se.
It's just, when it comes to Superman, his logo's his logo, can't really add to it or anything.
It's just all pretty "meh" news to me. Hence why I said what I said. The Strikeback is where we give our opinion and "meh" was mine haha.

Meh... They added a swirl or two, ooooo how exciting!

I mean Superman's logo is pretty classic. Hard to make it "new" or mess it up I guess.

Goyer is a good idea man, not a head write, though Goyer did do the first two Blade movies himself, as far as i can tell. I dont see where anyone else got writing credit on it (though del Toro might have) and i love those movies. On a whole though, his ideas need dialogue and editing fixes. Good thing they have 16 months to get this right!!

Damn, i usually don't care for comic movies, but I so can't wait for this one. Zack Snyder is the only guy in mainstream Hollywood who actually has a unique visual style (well, maybe Bay too) and that's exactly what a comic movie needs (Nolan unfortunately doesn't have any style whatsoever).

Ami really the first person to strike back at you? does that say Nolan has no style and you credit Bay for a unique visual style! Do you have down syndrome? Maybe you were smoking Meth while posting,or maybe you have never seen a Nolan movie. I'm almost at a loss for words man. have you seen either batman? TDK is overflowing with style and an incredible amount of visual styling. i would love to punch you in the face right now,you have posted some of the dumbest shit i have ever read on joblo in

TDK is overflowing with style and an incredible amount of visual styling. i would love to punch you in the face right now,you have posted some of the dumbest shit i have ever read on joblo in my life,you make actionfan81 look like he knows what he's talking about. now lets get to the Snyder part,he's the only director in hollywood with a unique style? have you seen Iron Man,how about the trailer for The avengers? and your dumbass does know that Nolan's brother is the creative paart of this superman movie right? of course you didn't know that cause you dont know shit about movies especially comic book movies. i was temporarily at a loss for words when i read your post but anger drove me back into reality so i could post my reply to your nonsense. god are you stupid and i'm not even going to touch the Michael Bay part cause that could go on for days. please do everyone a favor and don't post such stupidity especially when you start out by saying you dont usually care for comic book movies. you are either 12 years old or have the mentality of a 12 year old. i can't believe you posted that terd of a thought that ran through your meth saturated brain. By the way Breaking Bad has sucked for a while now

countem, that was the best reply since Samuel L Jackson said "Allow me to retort". i belly laughed. +1 to all you said and you forgot to school him on the fact that shooting things slow then really fast isnt actually a style. Fuck SuckerPunch

My hope for this went out the window once I found out that David Goyer wrote this script solo . He has NEVER written a good script on his own. His only good stuff comes from piggybacking actual great writers. And you can't say "give him a chance" because he has 20 years worth of shitty work under his belt. It's not like he is going to suddenly snap out of being a hack.

Whenever he isn't a co-writer of a great writer, he gives us shit like Ghost Rider: SOV, The Unborn, Blade Trinity, Nick

As for the logo, it is okay. The pointless swirls in the 'S' are kind of lame (but I guess someone's ego had to try to make it their own).

Very Curious

I'm extremely curious about this film. I actually didn't mind Superman Returns. It was decent but just didn't take advantage of our improved technology. We are now able to make a Superman film free from the constriction of pratical effects. They could have shown Superman doing any number of amazing SUPER things but it mostly just amounted to him lifting heavy objects. It was kinda lame. I have faith in Synder. I'm a fan of his and at the very least this film should have some badass action

I'm a fan of his and at the very least this film should have some badass action scenes. I want to see Supes and Zod destroying cities as they fight each other. Synder is the man to bring it. I honestly think the character of Superman is kinda lame. He just never interested me the way Batman and the Xmen did. So I'm not really concerned with Synder making changes if necessary.

Logo is fine

But I love the synopsis. Seems to be based off Birthright, one of the best comics/graphic novels I've ever read.

I don't mind it. It looks a little more alien, which is good. I just wish we got a Superman Returns sequel instead. Still, too early to judge.

If there's gonna be some kind of a teaser trailer this year, it's gotta be in front of TDKR, right? Right?!

Meh, is right

The original...one of the all-time best superhero movies. S.Returns was a modern day mash up and I liked Routh. But Supes will always just be a one dimensional hero to me...damn those Marvels for being so Complicated!

Poor James Marsden

He always played the other guy in a love triangle.
Enchanted
Superman Returns
The Notebook
Xmen

Yes, his role in "Sex Drive" was top notch. a very under appreciated movie

I like it. I'm one for a darker and more serious take on Superman because Superman, at times, can be a dark character with themes that cover with loneliness and isolation. I can't wait to see a trailer!

If there's one superhero who doesn't need a logo change, it's probably Superman. But I can live with a slightly more curvy "S", even if it isn't as good as the original and seems like an unnecessary change for the sake of change.
