Zack Snyder to make Superman birthday short movie and DC debut Man of Steel’s 75th anniversary logo…

May 31st, 2013 by Marc Comments

With Superman turning the big 75 tomorrow, June 1st, it seems celebrations are under way with Man of Steel director Zack Snyder at the helm…

And he’s not alone, he and Batman: The Animated Series legendary producer Bruce Timm will oversee this one-off short film that will feature a continuous scene of every version of Superman seen over the last 75 years – including cartoons, TV shows and movies.

Adding weight to the production are some of  WB & DC’s finest including storyboard artist Jay Oliva, DC’s Geoff Johns and Mike Carli and Peter Girardi.

No official release date as yet, but we have to assume it’s not too far away…

Oh and we were a bit late with this yesterday but that blue logo above is DC’s official celebratory logo for big blue’s birthday year. It’s tasty…

Yahoo! chatted to Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara who said the logo is part of a 12 month celebration of the “first super hero”: “We are proud to commemorate this milestone with exciting entertainment across the entire Studio and across the globe, ensuring this enduring icon reaches new generations of audiences,” he said of the character created in Cleveland, Ohio, by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and who debuted on the cover of  “Action Comics” No. 1 in June 1938.

Diane Nelson, president of DC Entertainment, called Superman “undeniably the greatest super hero in the world and likely the most influential comic book character of all time.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
