February 24, 2011: Grant Morrison on "All-Star Superman" Animated Movie

All-Star Superman With the release of the "All-Star Superman" animated movie on DVD and Blu-ray, LATime.com asked Grant Morrison for his thoughts on the adaptation of his original 12-issue comic book miniseries.

    GB: What surprised you most while watching the animated adaptation of "All-Star Superman"? Either about your own work or the work of others?

    GM: I was most surprised by how much of the book Dwayne McDuffie managed to condense into animated feature length. If I'd written the screenplay, I'd have probably missed out half the material he found room for, so I was quite delighted when characters like Samson and Atlas showed up. As for elements of my own work, Dwayne used quite a lot of dialogue directly from the book, and it was fascinating to hear it read. I like to write superhero stories with non-naturalistic, composed or heightened dialogue, and I haven't really heard any of my lines spoken by actors since I was writing plays. I wasn't sure how it would sound but was very happy with the result.

All-Star Superman was released on February 22, 2011 by Warner Home Video as a Blu-Ray Combo Pack and 2-Disc Special Edition DVD, as well as single disc DVD.
