Yup, lots of new images today. A good thing, too, because there isn’t a whole lot of decent movie news to post these last few days post-Memorial Day. Anyhoo. Here are some new looks at D.C. and Warner’s upcoming “Superman vs. The Elite” original animated movie.
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.
The all-new, PG-13 rated film is scripted by award-winning comics writer Joe Kelly, adapting the story from his original 2001 Superman story, “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way?” Turns out, not a whole lot. Then again, Supes was never exactly known for his laughs, so…
Michael Chang directs the film, which is due out on DVD and Blu-ray on June 12, 2012 from Warner Home Video.
