New Image From “Superman: Red Son” Animated Movie

A new image from the animated adaptation of the “Superman: Red Son” Elseworlds comic book story has been released online.

Written by Mark Millar, the 2003 graphic novel of the same name saw baby Kal-El land in mid-1950s Russia instead of Smallville, Kansas, where he grew up to become a Soviet symbol that fights for the preservation of Stalin’s brand of communism.

The cast of film includes Jason Isaacs (Batman: Under the Red Hood) as Superman; Diedrich Bader (American Housewife) as Lex Luthor; Amy Acker (The Gifted) as Lois Lane; Vanessa Marshall (Star Wars Rebels) as Wonder Woman; Phil Morris (Doom Patrol) as James Olsen; Paul Williams (Goliath) as Brainiac; Sash Roiz (Grimm) and Phil LaMarr (Supergirl) as Hal Jordan and Jon Stewart; and Roger Graig Smith (Arkham Origins) as Batman. Travis Willingham (Batman: Bad Blood) will voice John F. Kennedy and Superior Man, while William Sayers (Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders) will voice Joseph Stalin, and Ave Zoli will voice Svetlana.

Directed by Sam Liu (Batman/Superman: Public Enemies, Reign of the Supermen) from a script by J.M. DeMatteis (Justice League Dark), “Superman: Red Son” will be released on DVD/Blu-ray and digital download during the first quarter of 2020.

Done well or not, if it isn’t death or now some totally abstract version of Superman we can’t seem to get a decent “real” Superman story. I usually like these WB/DC animated features. Lately they’ve gotten pretty off the wall with the story lines. I just saw the new Wonder Woman, Blood Lines. It was strange as they seemed to re-make the original Wonder Woman feature that was out a number of years ago. And that was excellent. But this had very similar parallels to the original with some exceptions. Animation was nothing to get excited about as well. Especially… Read more »

Having read the graphic novel, it should be pretty good as long as they stick to the source material.

Is it still Phil Bourassa on character design? Looks different from what he’s been putting down since the animated stuff went New 52. Personally I wish he had stuck with his earlier style that he used on the first couple seasons of Young Justice.
