From the creative minds of Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and Bruce Timm (Superman: The Animated Series) and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this short follows Superman through the years, from his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 to Henry Cavill in this year’s Man of Steel…all in two minutes!
“We thought this was really cool, a great idea. It was originally supposed to be a DC Nation short,” said Timm during the Superman 75th Anniversary panel at NYCC. “We sat down and made this big laundry list — History of Superman. It quickly snowballed and became way bigger than a DC Nation short. The budget ballooned, I don’t mind saying. It’s going to be on multiple platforms, but the best way to watch it will be on the Blu-ray release.”
The short will be widely available on the “Man of Steel” Blu-ray release on November 12.
