The Undead Man of Steel will be just one of many superpowered zombies appearing throughout the publisher’s line, as part of their big summer storyline, The Blackest Night; the identity of the zombie characters – or "Black Lanterns," as they’re going to be called in the comics themselves – was supposed to be kept secret, but DC themselves accidentally spoiled two reveals with their latest action figure solicitation to retailers, identifying both Superman and the recently-murdered Martian Manhunter as two future Black Lanterns.

To comfort the Superman fans amongst you; it’s not "our" Superman who’ll be zombiefied; it’s the Superman of parallel Earth, Earth-2, who was revealed to have been missing in last year’s Justice Society of America Annual, written by Blackest Night writer Geoff Johns.
