The color scheme for the month highlights the National Guard's "Soldier of Steel" recruiting campaign designed around the launch of Warner Brothers' Superman feature film release "Man of Steel" on June 14. It stars Henry Cavill as Superman. Kevin Costner, Amy Adams and Russell Crowe have supporting roles.
The likeness of Cavill, in Superman costume, is featured prominently on the sidepod of the No. 4 car and the Superman "S" glyph will be on the nose.
"Representing the National Guard is a huge honor for all of us at Panther and being able to come to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the ‘Soldier of Steel' paint scheme is another great way for us to do that," Hildebrand said.
"There's a pretty seamless connection between these soldiers and Superman; they're both just ordinary citizens serving their community. So for us being able to compete in an iconic event like the Indianapolis 500 in Superman colors is just another way to highlight all the unbelievable things the National Guard does for this country. For us, the soldiers have always been the real superheroes."
Henry Cavill and director Zack Snyder will both be in attendance for the Australian premiere.
No further details are available at this point in time.

Miller: That's the trick, isn't it? What version ARE we used to seeing? Consistency and Diana don't have a very good relationship with one another. There have been a host of different takes, reboots, re-brands, etc. of late. All have their merits and strengths! For "Smallville," I've tried to mine and exploit the characteristics that, to me, embody the best of any interpretation of Wonder Woman. Strength. Intelligence, Nobility. And, most importantly, Love. But when we first meet Diana, she isn't being called "Wonder Woman" just yet. She's got a very specific mission. There's a very big reason that she left the island, which we'll eventually cover. Does she have the bracelets? Oh, yes. Like you see on the cover. And pants, of course. Regarding the rest of her "traditional" look - something tells me she might find her way to a lasso and some armor by the time all is said and done!
Geek: Will her appearance affect any of the romantic relationships in the book?
Miller: Clark and Lois are happily engaged and have been to hell and back - they're stronger than ever. That said, there will definitely be a bit of a record scratch, but not about who (or between the two people) New 52 readers might expect.

Greg Pak: Yeah, I mean, it's a ridiculously huge and exciting opportunity. I'm just really grateful. And it's a funny thing, because like everybody, I've thought about Batman and Superman for years. You know? Just in my head, as a comics reader. I've loved the characters forever, so when I started writing comics professionally, of course, I would think about, "What would I do if I had a chance to write a Superman story or a Batman story?" And I'll be honest: For a long time, I was kind of intimidated by just the notion of it. These characters are the most iconic superheroes on the planet. And that's a huge thing to think about tackling.
But when it came down to it, when I actually had a shot at doing it, I put on my writers' hat and started thinking about it seriously - and also looked at the lay of the land at DC and realized how much of an incredible opportunity the editors and writers had created by taking the huge plunge and launching the New 52, and starting these characters from scratch, and giving all kinds of new entry points and creating interesting, new angles on some of these characters. It all just started to fall into place in a really nice way.
"Batman/Superman" #1, written by Greg Pak with art by Jae Lee, will be released on June 5.
"Superman is the original do-gooder, and eyeglasses are a defining part of Clark Kent's iconic look," says Warby Parker Co-Founder and Co-CEO Neil Blumenthal. "When we started Warby Parker, we made a conscious decision to build a company that could be profitable and do good in the world without charging a premium for it.
"The Warby Parker x Man of Steel collection includes the 'Chamberlain' and 'Percey,' two frames - one bold and one bookish - with graphics pops of color at the temple arm," Blumenthal says. "Each is perfect for all your civilian responsibilities."
From May 21 you can purchase your very own pair of Clark Kent glasses, with a portion of the proceeds of every pair sold going to charity.
In my previous review, I touched upon the topic of Superman's death. For this post, I'm going to talk about his spectacular comeback. While DC decided to kill Superman and briefly explored a World without Superman, they also put plans in place to bring him back. This powerless Superman in a new suit is Mattel's initial Superman figure for their relaunched DC Universe Classics line. This review will be all about the Recovery Suit Superman.
Mattel must have securely thought that their DCSH Superman would be enough for collectors to own and incorporate in the DC Universe Classics collection. They went for the surprising choice of releasing this Recovery Suit Superman and the Mullet Haired Superman (Post Return of Superman appearance) for their DC Universe Classics toy line. This Recovery Suit Superman served as the variant one. I will be focusing on this figure and will dedicate a separate post for the Mullet Haired Superman.
