“Superman: The Animated Series” Coming to HBO Max in HD


Last month Warner Media announced that both the “Justice League” and “Justice League Unlimited” animated series would be available on the HBO Max digital streaming service from February 1. As soon as fans saw the announcement the question was raised: When would “Superman: The Animated Series” be included?

Well HBO Max today revealed that the animated series will not only be available on the streaming service from March 1, but “Superman: The Animated Series” will be shown in high-definition.

“Superman: The Animated Series” made its debut on the Kids’ WB television network with 13 episodes in the first season. It started as a 90-minute primetime movie special on September 6, 1996 showing the first 3 episodes.

Tim Daly (Wings) voices Superman. Dana Delany (China Beach and Batman: Mask of Phantasm) is the voice of Lois Lane. Clancy Brown (Highlander) is Lex Luthor. Malcolm McDowell as Metallo. Michael York plays Kanto. Michael Ironside plays Darkseid. Gilbert Gottfried is Mr. Mxyzptlk.

High def! Does this mean we’ll finally be getting a blu-ray release like all the other DCAU shows?

I was hoping for this series to get an HD transfer, and I’m pleased to hear it from HBO Max.
