The brand-new, official Facebook page for next summer’s MAN OF STEEL, a reboot of DC Comic’s most iconic superhero Superman, has revealed the first banner for the film. Other than the previously released marketing image of Henry Cavill as Superman a few months ago, there has not been much by the way of “official” images from the film so this release is exciting. Is the image itself that exciting? No, not really. It is just a stylized version of the new “S” shield, however, the exciting part is that we may soon see more marketing material being released. My hope is that this will all lead up to us getting our very first trailer attached to this summer’s THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. That would make the most sense since both characters are from DC and Warner Bros.
Anywho, check out the banner below (you can click it to make it a little over double this size) and let us know what you think of the new “S” shield in the comments below.
MAN OF STEEL is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Harry Lennix, Laurence Fishburne and Richard Schiff.
