In February 2016 we reported on the release of a new French fan film titled “Man of Tomorrow”, which was based on “Superman: Earth One” by J. Michael Straczynski.

Additionally, their sequel to the “Man of Tomorrow” short was also posted online. Titled “For Tomorrow”, in this short fan film many years have passed since the events of “Man of Tomorrow” and “The Awakening”. Superman no longer exists and only his legend persists.

This 7 minute short is a prologue to their next two shorts, which are currently in pre-production: “The Hellblazer” (aConstantine solo film) and “Solitude” their second Superman film.
