Daniel Dae Kim, Wilson Cruz, and Tim Daly Join DC’s Superman Radio Reenactment
Eighty years after Superman’s heroic exploits filled radios nationwide, DC is bringing these stories back to life. According to Entertainment Weekly, DC and the Creative Coalition are planning a reenactment of the 1940s Adventures of Superman radio serial. The show will air as part of the upcoming DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse.
DC has enlisted a trio of recognizable names to play the Man of Steel in the reenactment. Daniel Dae Kim, Wilson Cruz, and Tim Daly will all lend their voices to the character at various points during the broadcast. Kim is best known for his small-screen roles on Lost and Hawaii Five-0, and he recently co-starred in the Hellboy reboot. Cruz can currently be seen on CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery as Dr. Hugh Culber. Daly, of course, knows a thing or two about playing Superman. He’s been bringing the hero to life in various animated projects since Superman: The Animated Series premiered in 1996.
Additionally, DC has rounded out the serial’s supported cast with even more A-list talent. The list includes Troian Bellisario, Terry Crews, Giancarlo Esposito, Eric McCormack, CCH Pounder, Henry Winkler, Alfre Woodard, and more. Fans can stream the broadcast for 24 hours starting at 1pm on Saturday, September 12. Each hour features a different ensemble of performers.
The Adventures of Superman originally debuted in 1940 and ended its run in 1951. The show notably opened with announcer Jackson Beck’s famous intro: “Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.” Beck also introduced the iconic “Look! Up in the sky!” soundbite.
