Check out three new images and the Blu-ray cover for Warner’s latest Superman on DVD adventure, “Superman: Unbound”, due on DVD and Blu-ray this May 7, 2013. The original animated film features “White Collar’s” Matt Bomer as the voice of Supes. No word on a Batman appearance in this one, though, which is always somewhat surprising considering Warner loves putting the two characters together. I guess we’ll just have to make due with Supes kicking the crap out of Brainiac all by his little lonesome. With Supergirl’s help, anyway.
In case you missed it the first time ’round, you can watch the trailer here.
Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 release “Superman: Brainiac,” SUPERMAN: UNBOUND finds the Man of Steel aptly handling day-to-day crime while helping acclimate Supergirl to Earth’s customs and managing Lois Lane’s expectations for their relationship. Personal issues take a back seat when the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton – Brainiac – begins his descent upon Earth. Brainiac has crossed the universe, collecting cities from interesting planets – including Supergirl’s home city of Kandor – and now the all-knowing, ever-improving android has his sights fixed on Metropolis. Superman must summon all of his physical and intellectual resources to protect his city, the love of his life and his newly-arrived cousin.
The voice cast also includes John Noble as Brainiac, Stana Katic as Lois Lane and Molly Quinn as Supergirl.
