Rumor: Nokia to release limited edition Man of Steel Lumia 925

Nokia Lumia smartphone owners can already download an exclusive Windows Phone 8 app designed to promote the upcoming movie Man of Steel. Now there's a rumor that Nokia will go even further to help hype up the next attempt to reboot the Superman film franchise.

WPDang.com reports, via unnamed sources, that Nokia will release a special limited edition Man of Steel version of the upcoming Lumia 925 smartphone. Nokia first announced their latest Windows Phone 8 device earlier this month, which is a variant of the Lumia 920 but with an aluminum rim that makes it much lighter.

The smartphone is due to be released in June in Europe and the US and that happens to be around the time that Man of Steel is scheduled to be released to theaters. The article has no word on what differences Nokia plans to put into the Man of Steel Lumia 925.

If this story is true, this would not be the first time that Nokia has worked to promote a movie starring a DC Comics superhero. The company released a limited edition version of the Lumia 900 made to tie in to 2012's Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises.
