Superman: Doomsday Contents Announced
Superman: Doomsday, the first of Warner Home Video’s new series of original animated movies to be released on DVD, will be abailable on September 18.
Rated PG-13, the D2DVD carries a cast different from Superman: The Animated Series. Adam Baldwin voices Superman, Anne Heche is Lois Lane and James Marsters plays Lex Luthor. Equally important to comics and animation fans, long-time animation producer, sometime comics artist and full-time Jack Kirby fan Bruce Timm is the producer.
Based upon DC’s "The Death of Superman" (which WHV claims to be the best selling graphic novel of all time; the trade paperback omnibus edition will be released tomorrow), Superman: Doomsday contains many extras, including the documentary "The Clash of the Juggernauts," the usual interviews with the animation staff, a preview of the upcoming WHV D2DVD Justice League: The New Frontier.
Superman: Doomsday is listed for sale in this month’s Diamond Previews and will be available (at least for advance order) from your friendly neighborhood comics shop. It retails for $19.98. WHV has (you guessed it) a website with a preview clip.
