Coming Soon - Superman/Batman: Apocalypse

I make no bones about the DC Universe being my favourite Comics Universe (followed closely by Project Superpowers), so every time a new DC Animated Movie is due I get really excited!

Due out 28th of September 2010 is Superman/Batman: Apocalypse.

Based on the DC Comics series/graphic novel “Superman/Batman: Supergirl” by Jeph Loeb, Michael Turner & Peter Steigerwald, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse is produced by animation legend Bruce Timm and directed by Lauren Montgomery from a script by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Tab Murphy.

After a spaceship splashes down in Gotham City Harbor, Batman and Superman encounter a mysterious Kryptonian with powers as great as those of the Man of Steel. The Kryptonian is soon revealed to be Kara, cousin of Superman, who takes her under his wing to educate her about the ways of Earth. However, the villainous Darkseid has other plans. Seeing an opportunity to finally defeat Superman, Darkseid abducts and gains control of Kara, utilizing the powerful Kryptonian to do his bidding. It’s up to Batman and Superman to save Kara, but they’ll have to take the fight to Darkseid within his hostile world – where unknown, deadly threats lurk around every corner, including a brainwashed Kryptonian able to match Superman blow-for-blow.

The Voice Talents of Andre Braugher, Summer Glau, & Ed Asner join Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy who are back doing the voices of Superman and Batman.

I am really REALLY looking forward to this release, especially as it has a Green Arrow "Showcase" Short on the Disc with it!
