“Superman: Red Son” Official Trailer

Warner Bros. Home Video has given IGN.com exclusive first access to the official trailer for the “Superman: Red Son” animated movie.

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 4K Blu-ray, Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and digital download during the first quarter of 2020.

As General Zod would say, “ So this is “Superman”.”
Of course not the one that I know. I’m still deciding on this one.

Read the comic. 🙂 It’s really a great what if story from the Elseworlds title. If you don’t have it, there is a motion comic to be seen on YouTube to help you get started. After all, it’s just an imaginary tale.

Good or not, as far as I’m concerned (and I like theses animated features) I’m not buying or watching any more of these off the wall versions of Superman until they give us a more realist story line(s). We’ve not had anything out of the WB animated area for quite some time except these unconventional story lines. And that includes death stories as well.

I’m curious as to how many of you saw that last animated adventure which was Wonder Woman.
