As we get closer to the June 14th release date of MAN OF STEEL, the marketing for the film has really started to kick into gear. Here's today's MOS news...

David Goyer tells EMPIRE MAGAZINE (via a podcast) why there's no "Superman" in MAN OF STEEL's title...

"That was [producer] Chris [Nolan] and I. [We called it] 'Man Of Steel,' and Warner Bros. said, 'Why?' And we started talking about it, and we said, 'We want a line of demarcation in the sand between the old and the new.' We always knew we would be using the Superman glyph, or the shield as we call it. But 'Man Of Steel' was also supposed to represent our take, which was he's a man, but he's not made of flesh and blood, metaphorically he's a man of steel. So that was sort of like the whole thing wrapped up in a nutshell."

Works for me. Also, the film's OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE has posted another cool banner which you can see below...

MAN OF STEEL flies into theaters on JUNE 14, 2013!
