Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short

From the creative minds of Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and Bruce Timm (Superman: The Animated Series) and produced by Warner Bros.

  1. People can say whatever they want about his take on Superman, but it’s as clear as crystal that Zack Snyder loves the character very much.

    • +1

      I thought that short was awesome.

      • Agreed. Although I listened on my headphones and a friend could hear the music and wrongly assumed the song was from a Star Wars movie.

  2. The Animated Superman Short is PHENOMENAL. So many generations were touched by this one character. My Superman is the Bruce Timm Superman the Animated Series. I liked Man of Steel a lot (it had it’s issues) but I liked. Hopefully they do one next year for Batman’s BIG 75th Birthday

  3. Now i want to see a superman vs doomsday :)

      • That stuff aint canon and shows and kills “Super”man.
        The real story is still better and don’t have cheesy and questionable b*******.

      • Not that recommended. This is one of the few Superman comic book I’ve read and I really don’t like how the animated changed important things from the comic. It’s good, but the comic is way recommended.

  4. That’s why he IS the Godfather of superheroes

  5. Loved the Superman short but the 40 minute Dragon Con vid. ran down the battery in my laptop but it was great too.

  6. My Superman will always be Christopher Reeve anyone else notice how Man of Steel clips weren’t in it?

    • Bank vault dude.

    • So you stopped watching at the 1:36 mark then? And completely missed the fact that the last shot of Superman IS the Man of Steel version?

    • You must have meant to say “Superman Returns” clips, because I am not sure I saw any of those.

    • Huh? Man of Steel was the final one featured, especially because Zack Snyder is directing this.
      The ones missing are:
      - Smallville’s version (only showing the name)
      - Lois & Clark’s Dean Cain (only showing animated Lois)
      - Superman Return’s Brandon Routh (due the fact that it’s meant to be Chris Reeve sequel)

  7. The pause video is incorrect (or the scenes have been changed in the latest release) in a few scenes. In teen wolf, it’s not right before the credit but after the winning shot. Everybody stands up and one of the first people that do has his peas and carrots out in full view. Also, the little mermaid has a scene where a a jolly round priest wearing brown robs is approaching the camera. You can see his enormous happiness swinging back and forth, it didn’t look anything like the scene they showed.

  8. Could there be any more wallpapers!? I hurt my fingy from all da scrollin..
