Thanks to the site Nerdist, we now have a first look at DC Animations new and upcoming Superman animated feature, Superman Unbound.
Based on the Superman: Brainiac storyline written by Geoff Jones, the movie seems to pit Superman, and Supergirl against the evil Brainiac. Featuring the voices of Matt Bomer ( White Collar) as Superman, Stana Katic (Castle) as Lois Lane, Molly Quinn (Castle) as Supergirl, and John Noble (Fringe) as the evil Braniac.
Check out the trailer below.
Recently TV Guide caught up with Producer James Tucker about the project and what his thoughts were on Matt Bomer, and John Noble taking on these roles.
In regards to Matt Bomer:
“He had a jovial energy that was a little counter to what we usually do with Superman,” Tucker says. “But he also had that decency in his voice that Superman really needs no matter which way you go with him.”
On John Noble:
“I could listen to him all day. John had a lot of energy and he really got into the psychology of what was motivating Brainiac. He brought a level of intelligence, but also that slight bit of crazy that a super villain needs to have under the surface to make him compelling.”
The Full TV Guide interview also has his thoughts on the other cast members, follow the link above to check it out.
Superman Unbound has no official release date but is currently set to release on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Download this Summer.
