Bleeding Cool understands that the publisher is lining up Batman scribe Scott Snyder and Justice League artist Jim Lee to work on the new addition to its Superman line.
DC has published several Superman titles under the Man of Steel banner in the past, notably John Byrne's 1986 miniseries and the Superman: The Man of Steel ongoing.
The comic's launch is expected to coincide with the release of Zack Snyder's movie of the same name, which is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on June 2013.
DC recently announced a new addition to its New 52 line in the shape of Justice League of America, penned by Geoff Johns and David Finch.
The publisher's issue #0 month commences in September, with origin issues for each of its characters hitting the shelves.
