By Andy KhouriRepeating the formula from its highly bloggable Batman: The Animated Series Rises video, The Hub has enlisted the original voice cast of Superman: The Animated Series to help recreate the Man of Steel theatrical trailer almost shot for shot using clips from the classic cartoon. In the video below, Tim Daly and Dana Delany return to their fan favorite roles as Superman and Lois Lane, respectively, to perform in their own styles such lines as “How do you find someone who has spent a lifetime covering his tracks?” and “It’s not an ‘S.’ On my world, it means ‘hope.’”
Latest trailer. Some new stuff.
And not for nothing, but that note-perfect button at the end — “You can save them. You can save all of them” — just so happens to line up precisely with the central thesis of SUPERMAN: THE UNAUTHORIZED BIOGRAPHY. Which is available for purchase. And which has only 17 Amazon reviews come on people help ol’ Uncy Glen out why don’t you.
This has occasioned another OFFICIAL EXPECTATION STATUS UPGRADE!
From Cautiously Optimistic to PLEASE Don’t Fuck It Up.
(Which is pretty much Cautiously Optimistic but with fear.)
RELATED: Wrote a brief overview of Superman in film (minus the serials and animated shorts) for the Village Voice, which includes a look forward at MOS.
Man Of Steel: PLEASE Don’t Fuck It Up.
Zeus Comics will not be carrying the print edition of writer Orson Scott Card’s Superman.
Card sits on the board of the National Organization of Marriage which fights against marriage equality. His essays advocate the destruction of my relationship, that I am born of rape or abuse and that I am equated with pedophilia. These themes appear in his fiction as well.
It is shocking DC Comics would hire him to write Superman, a character whose ideals represent all of us.
If you replaced the word “homosexuals” in his essays with the words “women” or “jews” he would not be hired. But I’m not sure why its still okay to “have an opinion” about gays? This is about equality.
I’m very proud of my husband.
You’re both awesome!
