French Connection will be supporting the launch with a marketing campaign that will include a window installation at its Regent Street store, featuring original Superman and General Zod costumes.

The fashion company also ran an in-store promotion in 59 UK stores, where customers had the chance to enter a competition to win a pair of tickets to the European premiers of Man of Steel.
