With the digital release of the animated film “Superman: Man of Tomorrow” from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, much has been said about the new art style being used for the film. Director Chris Palmer spoke to CBR.com about the new look and how “Superman: The Animated Series” was an inspiration for some of the design choices.
“I think it definitely evokes the original Superman animated series. It’s kind of in the building blocks of Metropolis itself that this could be 25, 30 years in the future where while there’s a lot of things you know, there’s little points of departure like, ‘Oh, I hope the world could be like that!'” Palmer tells CBR. “For the line art, it was to try something new, just definitely give a big stamp on it that this is a different world from the previous films. It was trying different things, like line weights. People have said it evokes more of a comic book kind of feel, and I don’t think they’re wrong.”
