Got two new clips for you today from DC Universe’s upcoming animated feature Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, which is based on the truly awesome graphic novel by Jeph Loeb (Batman: The Long Halloween, Heroes) and Ed McGuinness (Superman). The two clips display an early part of the film in which Superman meets with President Lex Luthor(!), only to be ambushed by the Kryptonite-powered cyborg, Metallo.
If you’re as excited about Superman/Batman: Public Enemies as I am, then you definitely need to check these clips. If you’re not, you need to definitely check out these clips; they’ll get you onboard the trolley.
The clips come our way courtesy of MTV – I snagged a YouTube version of the first clip for our International viewers; the second clip is exclusive to MTV (for now), and may not be viewable outside of the U.S. Check them out:
Man, am I loving how this movie is looking. It’s everything I could want: Batman, Superman (in that order), a bunch of super heroes and villains and a whole lot of brawling. The graphic novel still stands as my current favorite Supes/Bats story and that is REALLY saying something.
Fan favorites Tim Daly, Kevin Conroy and Clancy Brown will all reprise their previous roles as the voices of Superman, Batman and Lex Luthor respectively. DC animation guru Bruce Timm will be involved and helming the film is Sam Liu, who recently directed the Marvel animated feature Hulk vs. Thor. Public Enemies will boast a PG-13 rating, so older folks, don’t miss out.
You know what, I’m feeling so good about seeing one of my favorite superhero stories getting a feature (animated) film that I’m going to go ahead and post a BONUS CLIP, featuring Supes and Bats taking on Captain Atom and Major Force. Enjoy!
Superman/Batman: Public Enemies hits DVD/Blu-ray on September 29, 2009. For some action-packed “Supes/Bats” pics, go here.
