The new Superman logo is, surprise, *DARKER* and *EDGIER*

Warner Bros just released (via Facebook) the official logo for their upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, directed by Zack Snyder, produced and conceived by Dark Knight team Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer, coming June 2013. It also stars Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, and Laurence Fishburne.

While not saying so outright, the new version of the logo is certainly darker and edgier™, with the red muted, the blue turned to charcoal, and the yellow gone almost completely in favor of more of an amber glow. Because when you’ve got a superhero who wears spandex tights, a red cape, knee-high boots, and a giant S on his chest that stands for “SUPER!”, the last thing you want is some lame color like yellow making him look all gay.
