Above is the new, gritty and rather dark logo for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. The logo was revealed on the newly opened Facebook page, and with the film not due to arrive in UK cinemas until 14th June 2013, we can expect a lot more promotional material coming in very soon.
So far there has only really been one official still released for the film along with some on-set photo’s, so with this new logo and Facebook page, it would appear that Warner Brothers are about to get the marketing ball rolling. As if we needed reminding!
Directed by Zack Snyder and written by David S. Goyer and Jonathan Nolan, the film stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent, Michael Shannon as General Zod and Russell Crowe as Jor-El. Also amongst the highly impressive cast are Laurence Fishburne, Christopher Meloni, Ayelet Zurer and Antje Traue.
n the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. When the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as Superman, not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
Man of Steel arrives in UK cinemas 14th June 2013.
