New Superman Batman Apocalypse Images and Clip

7 Comments

New clip and images from Warner Bros. and DC’s upcoming latest animated movie “Superman/Batman: Apocalypse”. The clip features Kara (aka Supergirl, voiced by Summer Glau) going on the run after splashing down on Earth.

In Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, a spaceship splashes down in Gotham City Harbor — leading Batman and Superman to encounter a mysterious Kryptonian with powers as great as those of the Man of Steel. The Kryptonian is soon revealed to be Kara, cousin of Superman, who takes her under his wing to educate her about the ways of Earth. However, the villainous Darkseid has other plans. Seeing an opportunity to finally defeat Superman, Darkseid abducts and gains control of Kara, utilizing the powerful Kryptonian to do his bidding. It’s up to Batman and Superman to save Kara, but they’ll have to take the fight to Darkseid within his hostile world – where unknown, deadly threats lurk around every corner, including a brainwashed Kryptonian able to match Superman blow-for-blow.

Fan favorites Tim Daly (Private Practice) and Kevin Conroy (China Beach) return to their seminal roles as Superman and Batman, respectively. The celebrity-laden guest cast is headed by Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age) as the daunting Darkseid. Sci-Fi heroine Summer Glau (Serenity/Firefly, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) provides the voice of Supergirl, and seven-time Emmy Award winner Ed Asner (Up) reprises his Superman: The Animated Series/Justice League role as Granny Goodness.

First, here’s an older clip, featuring the opening minutes of the movie (you can stop watching after the 1:50 mark; it just repeats after that for some reason):

And the new clip, which takes place moments after the opening clip:

    Thank you for noting that Ed Asner is REPRISING his role as Granny Goondess. I read like 3 reviews and they all talk about how weird he is for the role, but all I could think is, “if you knew what you were talking about, you’d know he ALREADY played the role in Superman The Animated Series and again in JLU.” Also Susan Eisenberg reprise her role as Wonder Woman for the film as well.

      That was actually part of the press release. I didn’t properly quote it.

        Yeah but you still mentioned it. Like I said these guys really made it sound like he was new to this role.

    This thing looks SERIOUSLY badass. “Public Enemies” was amazing and I just caught “Under the Red Hood” (which included the “Jonah Hex” short)……DC is seriously stepping their game up with the animated films. Marvel had better watch their back…..

      As far as I’m concerned DC has had the Animation genre on “Lock down” for at least 15 yrs starting with Batman:The ANimated Series all the way through Batman: The brave and The Bold currently and with the upcoming “Young Justice” they will continue to. Marvel on the other hand has the live action front on smash, while compitently delving into animated work every so often with great shows like “Spectacular Spiderman,” and “Iron Man: Armored Adventures” recently and most of their 90′s stuff.

      But yeah this looks awesome. Peter Chung (Aeon Flux) meets Michael Turner.

      Oh and is this the same Dominique from Superbuddies? Wondering cause I frequent there under Ronin!
