SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL Viral Marketing Begins With Alien Transmissions

Viral marketing for Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman film, Man of Steel, has kicked off with a website claiming that it has received alien messages from deep space and would like help decoding them. Update! It appears as though a Kryptonian countdown has begun.


A new website, the "Deep Space Radio Wave Project" (DSRW), has just surfaced online, and it is most likely a viral website for the new Superman film, Man of Steel. You can see on the bottom of the webpage that it is copyrighted by Warner Bros., the studio producing the film.


Mission Statement
Welcome to the home of the DSRW Project, a private non-profit research organization with a network of world-wide interstellar communication facilities that support the exploration of our solar system and the universe. We believe our research is essential to understanding the origin of life.

Our mission is to capture deep space radio waves and analyze them for patterns and messages. We share our findings with the public and work together to answer the question, “Are we alone in the universe?” Through collaboration, we will separate real communication from galactic white noise.

The goal is to recognize a pattern of sounds and mark them off in the corresponding boxes provided to unlock each interstellar signal. So far fans have very quickly decoded all ten messages that were provided, but check back often for more.

Update! Thanks to TheManOfSteel1013 we can now see what appears to be a countdown with Kryptonian symbols. What is coming? Perhaps the new Man of Steel trailer?


Thanks to Superman: Man of Steel (2013) for the heads up!

Man Of Steel, starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Laurence Fishburne, Christopher Meloni and Harry Lennix. The reboot flies into theaters June 14th, 2013!

seamuskeaneart - 12/10/2012, 5:42 PM
isnt this very similar to the viral marketing for GREEN LANTERN?
Mrcool210 - 12/10/2012, 5:43 PM
hmmmm, usually they give you some kind of hint that this is from a movie they are doing, tasm used oscorp for example,., you'd think maybe they'd put daily planet as a reporting source on the site or something
superbrandon - 12/10/2012, 5:48 PM
DC Comics copyright statement is at the bottom, so this is definitely for the Man of Steel.

I assume it's the countdown to the trailer on Friday.
MrReese - 12/10/2012, 5:49 PM

JDUKE25 - 12/10/2012, 6:06 PM
Love it. I really hope they speak a different language on Krypton. I want it to be Kryptonian and not english.
GeneralZod1138 - 12/10/2012, 6:08 PM
If I'm looking at this right, and I think I am, there's 15 hours and some change left.

So well know something tomorrow then.

Galaxy - 12/10/2012, 6:17 PM

Supes17 - 12/10/2012, 7:46 PM
Those aren't the Kryptonian symbols from the comics!
I'm sorry, but I'm not paying to se this anymore:P
BatLantern28 - 12/10/2012, 7:52 PM
The coordinates were entered in Google Sky Maps and it shows a part of the universe where a Red Sun exists. Maybe its the former location of Krypton.
BatLantern28 - 12/10/2012, 7:54 PM
And No, it isn't Kryptonian from the comics. They created a new version just for the movies.
BatLantern28 - 12/10/2012, 7:55 PM
This is the link that shows the coordinates in space:
FightAs0ne - 12/10/2012, 8:00 PM

Damn, my expectations for this movie are way too high. Every little piece of news leaves me salivating like a flesh starved zombie. I need the new trailer before I seriously lose my shit.

SugarYumYum - 12/10/2012, 8:35 PM

Can't wait for promo to FINALLY kick off and we can salivate over MOS tidbits for months. :D
mgeoff88 - 12/10/2012, 8:36 PM
I love the marketing for this! Keep it coming!

I would really like to help decode these messages, but I flunked Kryptonian in high school. :P
DCfan89 - 12/10/2012, 8:38 PM
hopefully this is the trailer, itll save me from spending my last to go see the hobbit
JayJayCAW - 12/10/2012, 8:44 PM
@Supes17: those "ARE" the Kryptonian symbols from the comics, the ones your talking about are "LETTERS", these are "NUMBERS".

@BatLantern28: thats how the language is spoken, not read/written, there was a language used for Kryptonian in the animated stuff, but they created a new one for live action.
