There are a lot of movies for comic book fans to focus on right now, specifically those who lean towards the dudes in tights side of the spectrum. What with The Avengers, The Dark Knight, and The Amazing Spider-Man all dropping soon, it is easy to momentarily overlook a little movie I like to call Man of Steel. Well today the Zack Snyder-directed reboot poked his head up as if to say, â€œhey everybody, don’t forget about me,â€ with the first official banner and a snazzy new logo.
Even though Man of Steel won’t fly into theaters until June 14, 2013, there’s a lot of back and forth because of changes to Superman’s origins and powers and costume and such. I’m pessimistic by nature, so I tend to worry that they’re going to screw it up somehow, even though I’ve always been rather indifferent to Superman. But what the hell, I’ll give it a shot. I’m always up for a superhero flick.
The logo and banner don’t say much about Man of Steel. Actually, it doesn’t say anything about the movie. You can look at it from the angle of: new logo means new story. In that way it is indicative of the change and rebirth of the beloved franchise. Either way, love it or hate it, full of anticipation or dread, the logo does look pretty cool. I’m curious what you all think of it.
Henry Cavill stars as the titular hero; Kevin Costner and Diane Lane play his adoptive parents, the Kents; and Amy Adams plays love interest Lois Lane, the intrepid reporter for the Daily Planet. Man of Steel also stars Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Russell Crowe, and Christopher Meloni.
