James Denton, Christina Hendricks (left) and Anthony LaPaglia have landed roles in D.C. and Warner Bros.’ latest original animated movie, “All-Star Superman”.
“All-Star” will be based on the Superman storyline from Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely, and begins with Superman (Denton) being “oversaturated by radiation during a rescue mission near the sun, accelerating the degeneration of his cells. Knowing that he has a limited time before he dies, Superman sets out on a journey that sees him revealing his secret to Lois Lane (Hendricks), giving Lex Luthor (LaPaglia) an epiphany on humanity and ensuring the safety of Earth for when he is gone.”
The award-winning storyline by Morrison has won three Eisner Awards, two Harvey Awards and three Eagle Awards. Which is a hell of a lot of hardware for the guy who came up with the “Final Crisis” mega-crossover by D.C., but I digress.
Also in the cast are Ed Asner as Perry White and Frances Conroy as Ma Kent, with Linda Cardellini, Arnold Vosloo and Matthew Gray Gubler.
It’s another in a long line of D.C. and Warner Bros. original animated movies that the partners are cranking out like it’s going out of style. Look for it in the spring.
