New Superman/Batman: Apocalypse Clip Shows off Darkseid’s Apokolips

You may want to visit Apokolips, but you probably don’t want to buy a summer home there. Okay, you probably don’t even want to visit, what with its roving bands of aliens in tanks and whatnot.

Anyways, new clip from Warner Bros. and D.C.’s upcoming “Superman/Batman: Apocalypse”, featuring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Big Barda arriving on Darkseid’s Apokolips to rescue Supergirl/Kara. Of course, before that whole rescuin’ thing can happen, the kids have to fight through Darkseid’s hapless army first. Oh, hapless armies, you.

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.

Featuring the voices of Tim Daly as Superman, Kevin Conroy as Batman, Andre Braugher as Darkseid, Ed Asner as Granny Goodness, and Summer Glau as Supergirl/Kara.

The original animated DVD is due out September 28, 2010.
