A closer look at the production slate with the "Kingdom Come" inspired logo

As production continues on James Gunn’s Superman, leaks are taking place on an almost daily basis as props, set photos, videos and images surface online.

In this case however, it is not a leak but a look at the production slate being used on the movie featuring the Kingdom Come inspired logo. Check it out below:

This design aligns closely with the emblem seen on the suit shown off by James Gunn back in February. Superman is clearly set to take heavy inspiration from the Kingdom Come comic, with the logo being a near identical match to the one from the series. However, it seems DC Studios has made the logo much more vibrant for this adaptation!

Although Brandon Routh wore this logo while portraying an older version of Clark Kent from Superman Returns in The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, the DC TV shows featuring this logo did not achieve widespread popularity that this current logo is having.

James Gunn Hypes Up Superman At Cinemacon

While CinemaCon didn’t reveal much about Superman, James Gunn did make a brief appearance along with David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan. While none of them were able to show up in person, a video message was played teasing amazing things for DC Studios coming very soon.

“I can’t wait to be there in Vegas with all of you next year as we kick off the summer of Superman.” James Gunn teased during Cinemacon.

“Can we disclose something? There’s a man in a cape,” David Corenswet joked in his message. “Yes, there’s at least one man in a cape. Here they heard it first”

It’s no shock that DC Studios would have big plans for Superman this summer. In a world where anything and everything can be leaked before a film releases, DC Studios co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran likely want to get ahead of the curve by revealing things on their own terms. So while CinemaCon may not have been the most explosive event, it holds great promises for the months to come.

Although the upcoming San Diego Comic Con is out of the question due to special effects not being ready in time, the studio is reportedly eyeing the Brazilian Comic Con CCXP later this year for the first official trailer release.

Superman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on July 11, 2025.
