SUPERMAN Clapperboard Features A New Look At The Reboot's KINGDOM COME-Inspired Logo

Cameras are still rolling on James Gunn's Superman reboot and even though the filmmaker has said he'll miss Comic-Con, we're hoping something from the movie will be shared in Hall H.

A teaser trailer is possible, if somewhat unlikely, but DC Studios could do with winning sceptical fans over after sharing that divisive first shot of David Corenswet suited up as the Man of Tomorrow. 

In the meantime, the clapperboard/slate from Superman has been revealed and it puts that eye-catching new logo front and centre. Inspired by Kingdom Come and some of the hero's earliest comic book adventures, it makes for a striking piece of imagery. 

While this logo was used in The CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover when Brandon Routh donned it to play an older version of Superman Returns' Clark Kent, those DC TV shows weren't exactly mainstream. As a result, many moviegoers who aren't comic book readers will eventually see this take for the first time when Superman is released. 

"It focuses on Superman balancing his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing," DC Studios co-CEO Peter Safran previously said of the upcoming movie. "Superman represents truth, justice, and the American way. He is kind in a world that thinks of kindness as old-fashioned."

Gunn added, "He's a big old galoot. He is a farm boy from Kansas who is very idealistic. His greatest weakness is that he'll never kill anybody, [and] doesn't want to hurt a living soul. And I like that sort of innate goodness about Superman as his defining characteristic."

Take a closer look at Superman's logo in the X post below.

Superman tells the story of Superman's journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas. He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.

David Corenswet is playing the Man of Steel, while Rachel Brosnahan has been tapped to star as Lois Lane.

The cast includes Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl, Edi Gathegi as Mister Terrific, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner, Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho, and Gabriela de Faría as The Engineer.

Supporting characters include Sara Sampaio as Eve Teschmacher, Wendell Pierce as Perry White, Skyler Gisondo as Jimmy Olsen, Pruitt Taylor Vince as Pa Kent, Neva Howell as Ma Kent, Beck Bennett as Steve Lombard, Mikaela Hoover as Cat Grant, Christopher MacDonald as Ron Troupe, and Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor.

Milly Alcock is also expected to make a cameo appearance as Supergirl before taking flight in her own movie, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.

Superman is currently set to be released in theaters on July 11, 2025.

This will be a great movie

Mrtoke - 6/9/2024, 4:21 AM
@vectorsigma - the only thing I have a problem with him sometimes is the costumes he uses are really bad like in GotG 3 with the guards in that ugly, padded whatever they were supposed to be. Doubt something like that will be in this but I'm not a fan os super costume either. Hate the red trunks. Snyder made an improvement on that part. But I'm willing to bet Gunn's will be 10x better than Man of Steel. And I love that movie.

@vectorsigma - No no least...we haven't seen...what makes you think...what has he done...just...
vectorsigma - 6/9/2024, 5:06 AM
@Mrtoke - tbh, for me, im not too critical of costumes. Im all for the writing, characters, action and comedy which he can do really well. But i guess Superman is a bit special so he needs to make it good too and i dont believe that first look is the final look
Arthorious - 6/9/2024, 7:56 AM
@Mrtoke - I’m feel pretty confident that Gunn’s movie will have better reception than Snyder’s but yeah his costumes could use some work. Not sure why he posted that costume in the first. Had it been a leak, that would’ve made more sense.
Mrtoke - 6/9/2024, 10:05 AM
@vectorsigma - I don't get the "final look" aspect though. He's not Batman or Ironman where he is constantly upgrading his suit for extra armor and stuff like that. It doesn't look like a makeshift costume as well. It looks like it was tailored for him. Idc about the collar. Whatever though. As long as the movie is good, couldn't give two shits how he looks in the end. I'd be fine if he was wearing overalls, white tee, working boots and a red cape. Make us love the movie.

@Mrtoke - trunks do not make hero if that is true where is blue trunks on wolverine costume where red belt on wolverine costume black stripes on wolverine costume flare out boots on wolverine costume in Deadpool wolverine fans can accept those NON comic accuate look to wolverine look to his costume in movie they also accept Superman not wear stupid underwear in movies most of time if that’s what petiole in Hollywood choose
Mrtoke - 6/9/2024, 11:19 AM
@dragon316 - that blue and yellow wolverine costume looks dumb as hell.
The1st - 6/9/2024, 10:53 PM
@Mrtoke - I feel like this is somewhat of a passion project for Gunn, so in that regard I'm optimistic. From what I've seen/read, it seems like we may get something akin to DC animation and JL/JLU/YJ live action films proper.
Mrtoke - 6/10/2024, 12:10 AM
@The1st - don't get me started on those shows. BETTER than the MCU. They're animation so they don't get the recognition they truly deserve. Thanos was a better villain than Darkseid though. The latter was barely used and when they got to him in the finale, it felt rushed. But as for the heroes? Better portrayal compared to the MCU's. Hopefully, YJ comes back and utilize the captured Kryptonians in some way. They're really dragging Vandal Savage and I don't like that. Hurry up and bring this in home, DC. Damn
The1st - 6/10/2024, 10:44 AM
@Mrtoke - True, I agree about Darkseid and Vandal. It's past time we got a new big bad, but the shows were so fleshed out they covered a lot of the major ones. For YJ though they've got a blank slate imo as it's only a spiritual successor to YJ to me.

Wonder if the KC storyline will play a role in some way down the line or if Gunn chose that logo for whatever reasons...
Mrtoke - 6/9/2024, 4:28 AM
@Doomsday8888 - he did say this DCU will be a 10 year story mission. With all the heroes that'll be in this, it kind of seems like that. They're passing on Crisis and Darkseid so that seems like the route they chose to go. If Gunn factors Darkseid into this, he won't be the culminating villain like Thanos was. I'm saying this with never reading KC but I hear there's a lot of history and iore in that so idk. I just know it's a well received storyline.
Doomsday8888 - 6/9/2024, 5:15 AM
Adapting KC, even after 10 years, wouldn't make much sense.

This Superman is way too young and the KC one...heh.

Read that story, bro.
It's amazing.
ObserverIO - 6/9/2024, 5:39 AM
@Doomsday8888 - It might be that instead of reclaiming their roles as Earth's heroes, Gunn's version will be the new heroes stepping up as Earth's heroes.

Either way the story of there being heroes in the world that are not very heroic and need replacing by true heroes would remain the same.
HulkisHoly - 6/9/2024, 11:34 AM
@Doomsday8888 -

Don’t forget like a year ago when Gunn tweeted about his 10 year plan or something that he used a Kingdom Come comic panel.

The Kingdom Come "S" Looks fine.
TrentCrimm - 6/9/2024, 7:42 AM
@marvel72 -

Yeah I really like it, I'm glad they went with something a little different instead of a more classic S shield .
TheVisionary25 - 6/9/2024, 8:03 AM
That’s a sweet looking slate , love how colorful it is!!.

I hope that’s the case with the suit aswell once it’s more cleaned up and we get a better image hopefully.
ProfessorWhy - 6/9/2024, 8:12 AM
I hate MOS, but that was a better shield crest. Looks like we're about to get 5Man: The Movie
RitoRevolto - 6/9/2024, 9:05 AM
The more I revisit that suit reveal the more I wish he'd just gone with a more classic looking suit.
RolandD - 6/9/2024, 10:39 AM
I would prefer the more traditional “S” but it does look good on the clapboard.

Gunns SUPERMAN sucks! It will be a FUNNY/GOOFY slapstick movie with Lex & Otis as comic reliefs...with Superman in his red undies & bulky plastic looking suit. This movie has 5 other superheroes smfh it should be called something else not Superman. Gunn excels with C list characters and FAILS with A LIST characters. The VERY reason why he's giving the fan base movies they didn't want...full of characters from FAILED SUPERMAN comics. This movie will FAIL miserably & this site will blame Zack Snyders fans of his vision that had a grounded realistic view of a alien on our planet...who thru trial & era learned to be a hero not Gunns Jesus story.

I like the KC logo because it looks alien . I’m assuming that’s why Gunn went with it. Because it doesn’t look like an S it looks like an alien symbol
