Superman: Unbound Clip With Lois And Supergirl

After the first clip from next month’s animated film, comes this new one focusing on the ladies.

This is shaping up to be one good looking film and by that, I mean the style of animation, although the characters are cute too. I’m glad they went with Supergirl’s pre-New 52 costume. It’s much better than her current duds.

Supergirl and Lois Lane — voiced by CASTLE stars Molly Quinn & Stana Katic, respectively — take the spotlight in an all-new clip from SUPERMAN: UNBOUND, the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies.The film also features the voices of Matt Bomer (“White Collar”) and John Noble (“Fringe,” “The Lord of the Rings” films) as Superman and Brainiac, respectively.

Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, SUPERMAN: UNBOUND arrives May 7, 2013 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as a Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD, On Demand and for
Digital Download.

This Is Lois Lane!

It’s hard to believe, but redhead Amy Adams is 36 years old. Wow. The actress from Doubt, Enchanted, The Fighter and more is also the new Lois Lane. She joins Brit Henry Cavill as Superman, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as his earthly parents. The reboot, directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) is due out in December next year and the cast, though surprising, is impressive. The last time the feisty reporter was seen on the big screen she was played by Kate Bosworth in Superman Returns and there was nothing about her character that would catch the eye of the Man of Steel. Margot Kidder in the original Richard Donner films and Erica Durance in TV’s Smallville have shown us the perfect portrayals of the classic character.  Independence, toughness and a well hidden sweet centre is what Lois needs on the big screen. Hopefully Adams can give us that. To refresh your memory about all the actors who’ve played Clark Kent/ Superman read this nifty post.

On a related note, Joanne Siegel, the widow of Superman co-creator (with Joe Shuster) Jerry Siegel passed away last month at the age of 93. Before she did the original inspiration for Lois wrote a letter to the CEO of Time Warner in relation to the ongoing court case regarding Superman’s copyright. In it, she reveals all the attributes mentioned above.

So I ask you to please consider – do these mean spirited tactics meet with your approval? Do you really think the families of Superman’s creators should be treated this way?

As you know, DC and Warner Bros. have profited enormously from 72 years of exploiting Jerry and Joe’s wonderful creation. Superman is now a billion dollar franchise and has been DC’s flagship property for all this time.
