I came across this site some time ago with a massive list of fonts used in logos, ranging from corporate giants like Canon, to the font face for movies like Batman: Famous Fonts | UrbanFonts.com
However, I still can't work out if these fonts came fist before the logo, or whether these fonts were inspired by the logos.
