In preparation for the Superman: Man Of Steel panel at Comic Con this week, the official Facebook page has released a new banner with an Augmented Reality code on it. I’m going to guess that the code will probably open up the movie teaser or something like that after the actual panel. For now, it offers a little CGI animation of Superman… just standing there.
Details on the banner:

It’s called augmented reality, and it’s brought to us by Gravity Jack! (Like their page!) Interested? Gravity Jack has given fans of AR everywhere the ability to explore the world of AR by creating their own augmented reality for free.
Augmented Reality (AR) is the use of a device (like your smartphone or tablet) to view the world, but in a completely awesome way. When you view the real world through AR, it can completely change what you see, or just add digital information (like movies, photos, even your Facebook profile), in 3D to what you’re already seeing. Think movies, social media, music, photos, games…anything, anywhere! The possibilities are endless, and Gravity Jack is capable of providing them all.
Man of Steel is an upcoming American superhero film under the development of Zack Snyder, Christopher Nolan, and David S. Goyer. Based on the DC Comics character Superman, the film will be a reboot of the Superman film series. Using Chicago and Vancouver as a backdrop, with production to be based in west suburban Plano, Illinois, the film entered principal photography in August 2011, for a planned theatrical release on June 14, 2013 by Warner Bros., which also includes IMAX venues.
Clark Kent is a journalist in his twenties who was adopted as a child by Martha and Jonathan Kent after he was transported to Earth from the dying planet Krypton. Raised with the values of his adoptive parents, he feels alienated because of his unique super abilities and struggles to find his place in life. When the world is attacked, he becomes the hero Superman to protect its people.
