[QUOTE]At the beginning of the month we talked about the next DC Universe Original Animated movie coming out. Superman Homepage has come across the DVD cover art for this (and I know ironshadow has posted this in the forums but let's get this on the news page to make sure everyone sees it).
I know a lot of people will voice their concern over yet another original movie featuring Superman and Batman. As we've discussed before, Warner Bros. has to make what will sell. They are not just making this for us comic book readers. We had great movies like Wonder Woman and Green Lantern but I honestly feel that because many people most likely viewed a bootleg version rather than actually buy it, those were seen as not as successful.
Despite being another Superman and Batman movie, I'm actually excited about this. As we can see from the cover, this is the story introducing and dealing with Supergirl. I really enjoyed the early issues of Superman/Batman. When the series started telling out of continuity stories, I started losing interest. I think this could make an interesting adaption. Looks like this will be released on September 28, 2010.[/QUOTE]
[/QUOTE]This past weekend the cover art for the upcoming Superman/Batman all-new DC Universe Original movie surfaced. Today Warner Home Video has officially sent over some information on what we can expect.
The movie will be released on September 28, 2010, as a Special Edition Blu-ray, a 2-disc Special Edition DVD as well as a single disc DVD. The movie will also be available OnDemand and for download.
We also know that there will be a new DC Showcase featuring Green Arrow. We can probably figure out what the story is but the questions most may have how much of Supergirl's story will be adapted and who will be providing the voices?
After a spaceship splashes down in Gotham City Harbor, Batman and Superman 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.
Sounds like what we all figured from the art. Who's doing the voices? Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy return to their seminal roles as Superman and Batman. They will not be alone. The celebrity-laden guest cast is headed by Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age) as Darkseid, 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.
The feature film has an estimated run time of 75 minutes with the Green Arrow feature at about 10 minutes. There will also be a Sneak Peak at the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie (running ten minutes as well). A featurette on Supergirl: The Last Daughter Of Krypton will give a comprehensive look from her introduction in the classic age of comics to her death in "Crisis On Infinite Earths" as well as her appearance on Smallville and beyond. Bruce Timm will handpick two bonus episodes from the animated series.
The Blu-ray will have more including an all-new featurette on the New Gods, Orion and two additional bonus TV series episodes selected by Bruce Timm. [/QUOTE]http://www.comicvine.com/news/official-det...calypse/141516/June 28, 2010: Summer Glau is Supergirl in "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse"
[QUOTE]TVGuide.com reports that Summer Glau (best known for her role in "Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles") has been cast to voice the role of Supergirl in the up-coming "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse" animated movie.
In the film, the latest in a Warner Bros.-produced series based on popular DC Comics stories, Glau plays Superman's cousin Kara, a mysterious survivor of the doomed planet Krypton who shows up on Earth. Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy reprise their roles as Superman and Batman, respectively, from the characters' animated series in the '90s and a previous DC movie, last year's Superman/Batman: Public Enemies.
"Early on in the story she just wants to fit in," Timm says. "Unlike most people who suddenly attain superpowers, she's terrified of them. She doesn't want to shoot lasers out of her eyes and be able to lift buildings with her pinky."
