New Images, First Clip From Upcoming Animated “Superman Versus The Elite” Feature

Warner Home Video has released four images and the first clip from the upcoming direct-to-video Superman Versus The Elite animated feature. Superman Versus The Elite – which hits Blu-ray, DVD and Download on June 12th, 2012 – adapts the acclaimed story “What’s so Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way?” where Superman finds himself dealing with a new team of heroes called The Elite. Continue below for the new media, with the first thumbnail below leading to the High-Definition Quicktime video and the remaining thumbnails to images from the animated movie.


Superman vs. The Elite, a DC Comics Premiere Movie, is produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video. The all-new, PG-13 rated film is scripted by award-winning comics writer Joe Kelly and the story is adapted from his original 2001 DC Comics release, Whats So Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way? The single-issue comic, Action Comics #775, was lauded by Wizard Magazine as the Greatest Superman Story of All Time, and ranked the epic tale at No. 21 on its list of the Top 100 Comics of the last 30 years.

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.

George Newbern (Father of the Bride) reprises his Justice League animated television role as Superman, and primetime television star Pauley Perrette (NCIS) provides the voice of Lois Lane. Downes steps in as Manchester Black, leader of The Elite. David Kaufman (Justice League: Doom) also reprises his Justice League TV series role as Jimmy Olsen.

The film is directed by Michael Chang (Batman: Brave and the Bold). Bruce Timm (Batman: Year One) is executive producer, and Alan Burnett (Green Lantern: Emerald Knights) is producer.

A co-production of Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video, the direct-to-video Superman Versus The Elite animated feature debuts Tuesday, June 12th, 2012 on Blu-ray, DVD, OnDemand and for Download from Warner Home Video.
