"Fake language" for Superman movie?

"You know all those symbols and scriptures that adorn the walls of the interior locations during the film's opening sequences on Krypton? They actually mean something. The filmmakers went through painstaking lengths to create a lexicon, alphabet, symbolism and even unique sentence structures all in the sake of adding realism to realm of Krypton. They even went as far as to assign different familial crests to the various families that populate the dying planet. Move over Na'vi, there’s a new fake language in town."

 Not sure I like the "fake language" swipe. Who created this?

Would that be Dariel Figueroa?

Also, according to the give alphabet the 'S' on Superman's outfit actually translates as a 'B'. I mean WTF???

http://kryptonian.info/man-of-steel/about.html

For the 2013 film, Man of Steel, linguistic anthropologist Christine Schreyer was brought in to develop a new and unique writing system and spoken language for Krypton, unrelated to any previous depictions of Kryptonian. Dr. Schreyer teamed up with graphic designer Kirsten Franson who designed the look of the writing.

I imagined Marki was asking who created the the "fake language" swipe.
It's not very complimentary towards conlangs.


(Possibly I'm the wrong person to point that out. In the past, I may have expressed similar opinions. Prior to watching Avatar, that is.)

If Markì means the author of this article then it's indeed Dariel Figueroa, if he means just the language (this topic is in the linguistic board) it's Christine Schreyer / Kirsten Franson. :)

True, taking this into consideration, yours is probably the correct assumption, my bad.
