DC & Warner Release Superman Anniversary Logo, Confirm Zack Snyder Animated Short

It's a big year for the Man of Steel. Come find out what's being done to celebrate the occasion.

As you likely know by now, 2013 marks Kal-El's 75th anniversary. It's a big one, and DC and Warner Bros. are aiming to throw him a great party. We already know Clark's getting a brand new title made by the dream team of Scott Snyder and Jim Lee (SUPERMAN UNCHAINED comes out June 12) and the famous hero has his own beyond fantastic looking movie on the way, but now Warner Bros. Entertainment and DC have released an official logo for the A-lister's birthday. Expect to see this on all Superman-related products to help remind the world just how awesome Clark truly is.

But that's not all they're doing. Zack Snyder, the director of Man of Steel, is working on a two-minute animated short all about the Kryptonian. It will allegedly pay respect to the character's extensive history (ranging from original cartoons and artists all the way up to Henry Cavill's take on the character). Also working on the video are Bruce Timm, Geoff Johns, Peter Giraradi, Mike Carlin and Jay Oliva.

Man of Steel will finally break into theaters on June 14. Viners, what is it about Superman that makes him so legendary? Give the Justice Leaguer your love in the comments section below.

UPDATE:

USA Today has released a slew of variant covers for SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #1!

This could be cool :) Logo's kinda lame, but I suppose you don't need much more than that.

@kal_smahboi: Not as lame as the Superman Unchained logo

Anyway it should be an animated series not short

I'm actually not sure I've seen the logo for Unchained. But to be honest, Superman isn't exactly known for having a breathtaking title image.

Two minutes seem really short.

Updated with variant covers for Superman Unchained #1.

Oh no, how hard is DC going to push Batman next year for his 75th?

Still, I'm happy for Big Blue.

I like superman because of the good guy he is. In t he movie trailer, he rescues a city worker while metropolis is in chaos. He flys the worker to safety, puts him down and asks 'are you all right?' He cares about us.

Now that I think about it, why didn't DC just put Snyder and Lee on the main Superman title?

Posted by Overlander

Oh, man. The Jurgens mullet. I thought we had left that behind in the 90s.

Man I miss the old costume

1. I do not like new 52, sam I am.

2. Restarting the numbering every few years, IMHO, weakens the purpose of having a #1 to begin with.

money.

For the logo what is that wedged between the 7 and the 5? that part just sorta derails the whole look of the logo.

Posted by OutlawRenegade

I like these tributes to the different eras of Superman. The classic logos and printing are cool too.

Posted by SylentEcho

Wow, all those tribute covers look awesome!

AHHH! I love/need that Silver Age cover!

MULLET SUPERMAN! Might be silly, but seeing a homage to my very first comic book is just awesome :)

Those are great covers. Glad we still get to see some good Classic Superman in print. Love the Jurgens and Ordway pieces a lot

Posted by ChillinVillain

Jim Lee? There are much better artists out there.

Posted by UltimateSMfan

@z3ro180: it was implied with the periods.

Posted by Z3RO180

Why a short? Why not an animated movie or something?

Edited by SandMan_

Wah where's Batman ?

With little boys :P

Bats is next year.

This year is all about Supes :D

Edited by Perfect 10
