The promotional materials have not stopped for the upcoming "Man of Steel", which is just a little over a month away from the big release. In the theme of our favorite last son of Krypton, Warner Bros. has released a new logo to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the famed character. In conjuction with the celebration, a new Superman short film is also in the works.

Who will helm such an honor? The "Man of Steel" director, Zack Snyder, of course. Snyder is teaming up with "Batman: The Animated Series" co-creator Bruce Timm, "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" director and "Man of Steel" storyboard artist Jay Oliva, as well as DC's Geoff Johns, Mike Carlin and WB Animation's Peter Girardi.

The short is said to "pay homage" to all the renditions 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."
