By Paul Romano - 5/10/2012


In Superman vs. The Elite, Superman's effectiveness as a super hero comes into question when a new group of super powerful crusaders, known as "The Elite," appear on the scene. As super heroes, 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, yet preferably non-lethal Man of Steel.









Release Date: 6/12/12
Cast: George Newbern, Pauley Perrette, Robin Atkin Downes, David Kaufman
Director: Michael Chang
Screenwriter: Joe Kelly
Studios/Distributors: Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Premiere, DC Comics, Warner Home Video

Anyway, the animation style... Not digging. I'll pick it up... But, just not crazy about this one.

Bring on the flash animated movie. :)

@Vermillion, I've been a fan for 6 years, but the fact that they pulled off Stargasm won them my undying loyalty. The concept sounds like a joke, but it actually worked.

What in God's name is up with Superman's giant head/chin? Looks like they were playing GoldenEye in DK mode when they designed it!
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/10/2012, 1:05 PM
Yeah, I'm going to have to pass on this one.
ScabbyJ - 5/10/2012, 1:06 PM
I love the DCanimation but this isn't the direction I want them to go.
Hellsing - 5/10/2012, 1:12 PM
I liked the original story from the comic book but seriously not digging the animation style
Bar20 - 5/10/2012, 1:12 PM

You knoe DC has been running the animation game for quite some time now. Stop Trolling
rbfn04 - 5/10/2012, 1:25 PM
Funny they decided to turn this story in an animated movie with all the DCnU crap going around...
Knightrider - 5/10/2012, 1:28 PM
I wouldn't let the animation put anyone off, the comic version of this film is a great read so this will be a really good movie.
plasticman - 5/10/2012, 1:29 PM
Just bring us a new Justice League series. They are hinted at in Young Justice but why not make a new JLA series similar to Unlimited? I loved that show. (Could of dropped Elongated Man and added the ol' P-Man.)
Spock - 5/10/2012, 1:30 PM
This looks good but Iam about burnt out with Supes & BatMan. Can we please get something else like say!
126thst - 5/10/2012, 1:43 PM
Weak.
StuckInPanels - 5/10/2012, 1:44 PM
looks like Extreme Ghostbusters level animation.
Turtlestrong - 5/10/2012, 1:50 PM
Yeah, i'm going to need DC to make a feature length Captain Marvel, anothe Wonder Woman or even Flash animated movie. I think Batman and Superman should get a rest for a DVD or so...heck, even Nightwing. Maybe do a movie about Nightwing in his year one away from Batman.
thetrojan - 5/10/2012, 2:00 PM
i quite like what ive read about the elite,but the union jacked leader has a terrible liverpudlian scottish cockney accent which is really shit.
SugarYumYum - 5/10/2012, 2:00 PM
What the [frick] is happening to the quality of DC's animation? JL:D was BARELY passable but this is just plain horrible. Go back to JL/JLU style please, don't fix what ain't broke ffs. -___-

The movie itself looks good though so I'll try to get pass the horrid art to appreciate it.

And yeah, bring JL back to TV please.
Supes17 - 5/10/2012, 2:02 PM
The animation looks terrible.
What the [frick], DC?
Supes17 - 5/10/2012, 2:02 PM
[frick] THIS MOVIE
Tevii - 5/10/2012, 2:03 PM
This is the FIRST DC Animated movie that Im not excited to see...
Out of ALL the stories out there, why this??
Spock - 5/10/2012, 2:04 PM
Can we @ least get something new other than Supes & JL?
AC1 - 5/10/2012, 2:04 PM
as soon as the logos ended and the first bits of animation showed I had to turn it off. Looks like complete and utter horseshit.
Knightrider - 5/10/2012, 2:07 PM
I think out of all the DC and Marvel animated movies Red Hood still remains my fav and the animation for
Knightrider - 5/10/2012, 2:07 PM
it to was great
Supes17 - 5/10/2012, 2:15 PM
Red Hood IS the best one so far
Tevii - 5/10/2012, 2:18 PM
Red Hood and Wonder Woman are the two best.
MarsivNayr - 5/10/2012, 2:27 PM
what about JL Doom? I liked that one too
MarsivNayr - 5/10/2012, 2:28 PM
But yes....Red Hood be the best so far.
thewolfx - 5/10/2012, 2:29 PM
as a superman fan i must say this looks like utter shit


marvel is kickin your ass dc you cant just rely on that emo with parent issues .. wake up!
rbfn04 - 5/10/2012, 2:34 PM
@thewolf it's a great Superman story. That show that Superman (Not Extreme Superman from DCnU) can be effective in the 21st century...
thewolfx - 5/10/2012, 2:48 PM
yes yes rb im sure the story will be decent to good but the presentation is not worthy of the man of steel

even allstar superman looks better then this
jaycr - 5/10/2012, 2:48 PM
I read the comic and I think that it is an interesting story. The character design is cartoony and looks kindda rushed though, but I won't call it shit until I see it. BTW, Maverlites, stop been so juvenile.
VIRILEMAN - 5/10/2012, 3:23 PM
That looks terrible.
rbfn04 - 5/10/2012, 4:13 PM
I dunno. I kinda dig the old school animation style. Kinda sick of all cgi everything
ISeeStupidPeople - 5/10/2012, 4:17 PM
Surprised by the hate for this. The art's not that great, but the story looks plenty interesting.

My least favorite of the DC Animation stuff is still probably Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. Such stupid looking abs.
Batman5 - 5/10/2012, 5:44 PM
idk abt this one...
