New images and a fresh clip from Warner’s upcoming direct-to-DVD original Superman movie, “All-Star Superman”, which finds the Man of Steel once again confronting his bald nemesis and learning what it means to be less than all-powerful all the time.
In All-Star Superman, the Man of Steel rescues an ill-fated mission to the Sun (sabotaged by Lex Luthor) and, in the process, is oversaturated by radiation – which accelerates his cell degeneration. Sensing even he will be unable to cheat death, Superman ventures into new realms – finally revealing his secret to Lois, confronting Lex Luthor’s perspective of humanity, and attempting to ensure Earth’s safety before his own impending end with one final, selfless act.
Based on the Eisner Award-winning DC Comics series/graphic novel of the same name by Grant Morrison with illustration by Frank Quitely, All-Star Superman is executive produced by animation guru Bruce Timm and directed by Sam Liu (Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths) from a script by acclaimed comics writer Dwayne McDuffie (Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths).
Featuring the voices of James Denton as Superman, Christina Hendricks as Lois Lane, Anthony LaPaglia as Lex Luthor, Ed Asner as Perry White, Frances Conroy as Ma Kent, Matthew Gray Gubler as Jimmy Olsen and Linda Cardellini as Nasty.
Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, “All-Star Superman” will be available February 22, 2011 from Warner Home Video as a Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack and 2-Disc Special Edition DVD, as well as single disc DVD, On Demand and for Download.
