Zack Snyder's Man of Steel Gets a Gritty New Superman Logo
Posted 03.30.12 by BrentJS
Director Zack Snyder's Superman franchise reboot, Man of Steel, has had its own Facebook page since May of last year, but it's been a pretty barren page, with only a solo image of Henry Cavill as Superman to offer eager fans. Now, Warner Bros. has updated the page with a second image, a gritty new "S" logo, and it's stirred up a bit of controversy in the
nerd fan community because it differs considerably from the classic comic book "S" logo.
We think the highly-stylized new "S" symbol looks great — and makes sense in light of costume designer Michael Wilkinson's recent comments about the changes to Superman's costume for the movie stemming from the "neo-medieval" fashion prevalent on his home planet of Krypton — but don't take our word for it.

Man of Steel was written by David S. Goyer, from a story he conceived with producer Christopher Nolan. Joining Cavill are Amy Adams as Lois Lane; Diane Lane as Superman's adoptive mother, Martha Kent; Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, editor-in-chief of the Daily Planet; and Russell Crowe and Ayelet Zurer as Superman's Kryptonian parents, Jor-El and Lara Lor-Van.
