They are able to incorporate story lines, themes, plot and a whole lot of other things into their brands. Hollywood has always inspired artists from across the globe. Logo Designers are no exception to that. Some logos created, used and popularized by Hollywood are so famous that people from all over the world instantly recognize these logos and associate them with the brand or the movie franchise they represent. The popularity of these logos is a wonderful inspiration, as a tribute we decided to share some of the most widely recognized fictional logos.

Since then there had been many variations to the original logo but the basic theme remains the same in all Superman movies, animations, tv series. The S in this logo obviously represents superman, the shield is the symbol of protection.
Superman’s successful brand development inspired many other comic characters particularly super heroes to come up with a logo of their own, most notably among them is the Batman franchise.
