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 (Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths) from a script by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Tab Murphy (Gorillas in the Mist).

In Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, a spaceship splashes down in Gotham City Harbor -- leading Batman and Superman to 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.

Fan favorites Tim Daly (Private Practice) and Kevin Conroy (China Beach) return to their seminal roles as Superman and Batman, respectively. The celebrity-laden guest cast is headed by Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age) as the daunting Darkseid. Sci-Fi heroine Summer Glau (Serenity/Firefly, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) provides the voice of Supergirl, and seven-time Emmy Award winner Ed Asner (Up) reprises his Superman: The Animated Series/Justice League role as Granny Goodness.

Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse will be distributed by Warner Home Video on September 28, 2010.

hbk82287, amazing isn't it. But now that I think about it, neither is the past week's exclusive interviews with Joss Whedon on the Avengers, Supervising Producer Josh Fine on Avengers: Animated and Faran Tahir on Warehouse 13, Iron Man and Star Trek; or my posts on Heroic Ambition, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, Clash of the Titans 2, Costumed Heroes vs. LAPD, Caesar: Rise of the Apes, Julie Benz in No Ordinary Family, the Superman: Doomsday fan trailer, Michael Chiklis on No Ordinary Family, Robert Downey Jr. on The Avengers, Tim Kring on Heroes, Edgar Wright on Brandon Routh, Chris Evans and Scott Pilgrim; and Jeremy Renner being cast in Mission Impossible IV.

@ hbk82287 - are you really complaining in every [frick]ing article? Do you have a girl in real life or are you a poor little geek smuck who's never gotten laid?
blueorangeny - 9/1/2010, 8:18 AM
btw Good Job Ed

Thanks for the info, I just emailed for 2 tickets for the event in NY. Here are my plans (hbk82287) me and my girl (avatar picture) are going for dinner at Carmines right off Times Square, I'll plan to have some Linguini with the Lobster sauce. Jennifer will most likely have her favorite, Chicken Marsala. Bottle of nice white wine. Then catch the event (Superman/Batman), after head out for some drinks. When we get back home, I'll have her dress up as Supergirl, pop in Batmanxxx and handle my business like if I was Bruce Wayne. Now go bitch and complain about that @hbk82287, take this how you want but guess what. My night just entailed 2 out of 3 best things a man can have, girls and comic books (sports is the 3rd if you don't know bitch).

Population: blueorangeny and his girl on 9/23.

Save the beer and blunts for that weekend, when the G-men will be destroying the Titans. Kakow!

This movie will hopefully keep pace with The Red Hood, which was magnificent.
