At this year’s New York Comic Con DC Comics rolled out the red carpet to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of their most iconic hero, Superman. As part of the celebration they revealed a new animated short, produced by Warner Bros. Animation, in conjunction with DC Entertainment. Producers are “Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder and animation guru Bruce Timm.
The short follows Superman through the years, from his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 to Henry Cavill in this year’s amazing Superman reboot by Zach Snyder, “Man of Steel.” It’s a fantastic look at Krypton’s favorite son and it’s all done faster than a speeding bullet. (Ok, it’s done in two minutes but it DOES go pretty fast.)
Continuing in their year long celebration of everything Supes, Warner Bros. has announced that Zach Snyder’s “Man of Steel” will soar into homes on November 12th. The fate of mankind is in the hands of one man when “Man of Steel” arrives onto Blu-ray 3D combo pack, Blu-ray combo pack, DVD 2-disc special edition, 3D limited collector’s edition as well as digital download just in time for the holidays.
In “Man of Steel” a young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
