“My Adventures With Superman” Moves to Adult Swim/Toonami

My Adventures With Superman

Warner Bros. Discovery has officially announced that the upcoming “My Adventures With Superman” will not premiere on Cartoon Network as previously announced, but will instead move to Adult Swim/Toonami.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the DC animated series will debut later this year during Adult Swim’s late-night primetime hours with encores on Toonami and on the streamer. Adult Swim is expanding its hours to meet animation fans where they are by offering best-in-class animation for a multigenerational audience. Adult Swim will begin at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT Monday through Saturday starting May 1.

No premiere date has been announced as yet, but “later this year” would seem to indicate that Superman fans have a few months to wait still.

Executive Producer Jake Wyatt responded to the news on Twitter saying, “So many of the people who made and are making this show grew up on Dragonball, Sailor Moon, Tenchi, Gundam, Naruto, and the rest of the Toonami lineup; it’s so special that we’ll get to be a part of that legacy with the work that shaped us. Also the Toonami promos always bang!”

My Adventures With Superman

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, “My Adventures with Superman” introduces us to twenty-somethings Clark Kent, the bright and driven Lois Lane and their best friend Jimmy Olsen as they begin to discover who they are and everything they can accomplish together as an investigative reporting team at the Daily Planet. Promising a mix of action, comedy and romance, the new series is expected to premiere some time in 2023.

Described as a serialized coming-of-age story, “My Adventures with Superman” will follow Clark as he builds his secret Superman identity and embraces his role as the hero of Metropolis—and perhaps the world. Lois, now growing into a star investigative journalist, takes aspiring photographer Jimmy Olsen under her wing. All the while, Clark and Lois are falling in love, sharing adventures, taking down bad guys, stumbling over secrets and discovering what it means to be Superman and Lois Lane.

Actors Jack Quaid (“The Boys”) and Alice Lee (“Zoe’s Extraordinary Playlist”) will lead the “My Adventures with Superman” voice cast as Clark Kent and Lois Lane, respectively. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation with Register (“Teen Titans Go!”) serving as executive producer. Jake Wyatt (“Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus”) and Brendan Clogher (“Voltron: Legendary Defender”) are on board as co-executive producers and Josie Campbell (“She-Ra and the Princesses of Power”) as co-producer.

The new animated series has already received an order for two season.

Glad we’re finally receiving more news about this show. As someone who grew up watching old-school anime, I could see that the art style is clearly influenced by anime. I’ve always felt that DC & Marvel characters should keep their western art styles separate from anime art designs. However, this news has peaked my interests even further. Hopefully this will be a nice blend between both………..Oh, and I hope we get at least 1 episode of “Superman vs. Meshi” LOL. That would be funny for 1 episode.
