Superman, Batman And Speedy

If you’ve seen the excellent Green Lantern: First Flight animated film, you’ve already seen this, but now the Superman/Batman: Public Enemies site has been updated with this First Look at the team-up movie. Based on the first few issues of the Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuiness series, with Lex Luthor as President and more guest stars than a season’s worth of Justice League Unlimited, this is going to be one awesome movie. Check out the almost 8 minute sneak peek below, with interviews from the cast and lots of perty pics from the comics and the film, which is released on September 29.

And still on DC-related news, the upcoming season 9 of Smallville not only has Zod, Metallo and a Geoff Johns-penned JSA episode, it also will introduce Green Arrow’s sidekick Speedy. Not the Roy Harper version who grows up to become Red Arrow, but rather the Kevin Smith and Phil Hester created HIV-positive female teen, Mia Dearden. Green Arrow in Smallville is already quite young, but I guess you’re never young enough to have a younger apprentice.

Superman/Batman Animated Film

 

Public Enemies TPBSure, Marvel may be kicking DC’s butt in the battle of the cinema, but DC are winning the animated war. Marvel’s animated films (two Ultimate Avengers, Iron Man, Dr. Strange and Hulk Vs) have been disappointing, but DC’s (Superman/Batman, Justice League: The New Frontier, Wonder Woman) have been awesome. This year, after the recently announced Green Lantern: First Flight, the next release will be Superman/Batman: Public Enemies. This is great news indeed. The film will be based on the action packed first 6 issues of DC’s team-up title, by writer Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuiness. The official synopsis is below. I can’t wait. Go here for a sneak peek at the comic book  inspiration.

SUPERMAN/BATMAN: PUBLIC ENEMIES:

United States President Lex Luthor uses the oncoming trajectory of a
kryptonite asteroid to frame Superman and declare a $1 billion bounty
on the heads of the Man of Steel and his “partner in crime” Batman.
Super heroes and super villains alike launch a relentless pursuit of
Superman and Batman, who must unite – and recruit super help – to
stave off the action-packed onslaught, stop the asteroid, and uncover
Luthor’s devious plot to take command of far more than North America.
