Dark Knight Returns 2 Superman

2013 is Superman’s 75th anniversary, and while Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel is the high-profile centerpiece of DC and Warner Bros.’ celebration/promotion of the character, it is by no means the only Superman presence this year. DC is using a Superman anniversary logo company-wide this year on projects related to the character, for  starters.
