This year marks the 75th anniversary of Superman and in celebration of the last son of Krypton, Warner Bros. has debuted a new logo for the character that will appear on all manner of products for the next year. In addition, The Hollywood Reporter says a new Superman short is being worked on by Man of Steel director Zack Snyder to honor the legacy of the character.
Snyder is reportedly working with Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Bruce Timm and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns director and Man of Steel storyboard artist Jay Oliva, as well as DC’s Geoff Johns and Mike Carlin and WB Animation’s Peter Girardi.
Conceived as being one continous shot, the short is said to “pay homage” to all the versions of Superman over the years including “Max Fleischer’s cartoons, on-screen portrayals by George Reeves and Christopher Reeve, iconic versions drawn by artists Wayne Boring, Curt Swan and Neal Adams, on up through Henry Cavill’s interpretation in Man of Steel.”
The animated short will make its world debut at Comic-Con international this summer before appearing on multiple platforms this fall.
