First 'Man of Steel' Costumes + New Promo Banners at Licensing Expo
Look, up in the rafters! Is it a bird? A plane? No, it's only a few Superman costumes. One of the other big industry-related conventions every year (besides CinemaCon, Comic-Con) is the Licensing Expo, where product/brand owners show off their brands in hopes of licensing them to companies to make merchandise of all sorts. ComingSoon/ShockTillYouDrop got spy shots of the various marketing and promotion banners on display, including some for movies we have seen nothing from so far. They also found a display for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel showing off various Superman costumes, including Kal-El and Jor-El, it looks like.
Up first, we have to feature these costume displays from Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill as Superman and Russell Crowe as Jor-El. Some of these look pretty damn cool; I think one of them is Faora's suit, too.
In addition to those costume shots, ComingSoon snapped a number of photos of the various promo banners around the Licensing Expo 2012. Here's some of our favorite ones - click on any below for their full gallery.
There's more shots of banners for Despicable Me 2, Fast & Furious 6, The Smurfs 2, Rio 2, Turbo, Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers and Percy Jackson 2: Sea of Monsters in the ComingSoon Licensing Expo gallery.
I had to include that shot of the Iron Man 3 banner, even though it's just another simple teaser poster. The banner for R.I.P.D., which stands for the Rest In Peace Department, is looking good already. Robocop looks... interesting, but that's because there's nothing to it. All we know is José Padilha is now directing, and Joel Kinnaman is playing the new Robocop. And honestly, that early banner & logo for Shyamalan's After Earth looks pretty cool, I'm curious to see more from it beyond just that imagery. I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more about all of these films and many others over the next few summer months. Stay tuned as always!
