Warner Home Video has announced that their latest DC Animated film, Superman Vs. The Elite, is set to have its world premiere this month at Wonder-Con. The film, based off of Actoin Comics #775 ("What's So Funny About Truth, Justice & the American Way"), will be screened on Friday March 16, 2012 from 6:30pm - 8:00pm in the Anaheim Convention Center Ballroom in Anaheim, CA. Check out the press release (which also reveals the voice actor for Manchester Black, leader of The Elite) below:
Be among the first to see the latest release from the popular series of DC Universe Animated Original PG-13 Movies when Warner Home Video, Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Animation present the World Premiere of Superman vs. The Elite.
In the film, Superman's effectiveness as a superhero comes into question when a new group of super-powerful crusaders, known as "The Elite," appear on the scene. As superheroes, the Elite know no bounds and are more than willing to kill, even on a massive scale, to stop villainy -- putting them on a collision course with the ever-ethical, preferably nonlethal Man of Steel.
The voice cast is led by George Newbern (Father of the Bride), reprising his Justice League/Justice League Unlimited role as Superman, NCIS star Pauley Perrette as Lois Lane, and versatile voice actor Robin Atkin Downes (Batman: Year One, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as Manchester Black, the leader of The Elite. Award-winning comics writer Joe Kelly has adapted his original story from the heralded Action Comics #775 ("What's So Funny About Truth, Justice & the American Way") into a script directed by Michael Chang (Batman: Brave and the Bold) and executive produced by Bruce Timm (Batman: Year One).
See the film, then stay for the panel, where members of the filmmaking team and voice cast will take questions from moderator Gary Miereanu and the audience. Prizes will be awarded, and new details about future DC Universe films will be revealed!
Superman Vs. The Elite will be released on DVD, Blu-Ray and Download later this summer.
