Remember that “Superman 75” short that we talked about a few months ago? It is finally going to screen! “Superman 75” will debut this Saturday at the Superman 75th Celebration panel at New York Comic Con and will air on Cartoon Network Wednesday, October 16th, 2013 at 6:58pm ET. The short will also be available on the DVD and Blu-ray of Man of Steel this November (via World’s Finest).
Conceived as being one continous shot, the short is said to “pay homage” to all the versions of Superman over the years including Max Fleischer’s cartoons, on-screen portrayals by George Reeves and Christopher Reeve, iconic versions drawn by artists Wayne Boring, Curt Swan and Neal Adams, on up through Henry Cavill’s interpretation in Man of Steel.
Man of Steel director Zack Snyder directed the short with help from Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Bruce Timm and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns director and Man of Steel storyboard artist Jay Oliva, as well as DC’s Geoff Johns and Mike Carlin and WB Animation’s Peter Girardi.
