DC Unveils Superman Anniversary Logo, Promises Zach Snyder Short

WB is set to capitalize on Superman being 75 years old.

With Superman's rights secured for the forseeable future, WB proudly unveiled a new logo to THR this morning celebrating the character's 75th anniversary. 

Here's a quote from WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara about the anniversary.

Warner Bros. is privileged to be home to the global Superman brand, which has had an unparalleled impact on popular culture for 75 years.  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.

Man, that's some fine sounding corporate-speak.

We spoke to WB junior design intern Vlad Kozinkerkov about how he came up with the new logo.  "They say, 'Vlad, go make Superman blue.' So that is what I do." 

Perhaps even more important that Kozinkerov's latest work of photoshop wonder is the news that WB will be unveiling a two minute short celebrating Superman's history, which will be directed by Man of Steel director Zach Snyder.  Bruce Timm, Geoff Johns and Mike Carlin are also attached to the project, which will incorporate a mix of animated, live-action and comic book depictions of the superhero.  No word yet on what the short will look like, but our bet is a two minute slow motion punch.  An animatic version of the clip will debut at Comic-Con.

DC also announced that it would be producing animated Superman shorts for the DC Nation television block this fall.
