Later this month, Warner Bros. Animation will release Superman: Red Son, a new animated film based upon Mark Millar and artist Dave Johnson’s 2003 Elseworlds miniseries. Within this world, Kal-El’s rocket landed in the Soviet Union and he embraced their values as Superman. That completely changed the course of DC’s history, and escalated the Cold War between the U.S. and the Soviets to a new level.
Warner Bros. has released a new Superman: Red Son preview scene that features a newsreel of Kal-El’s first public appearances. However, the American response is fear mixed with paranoia. The news reader isn’t convinced by the footage. But the Americans will soon learn the hard way that Superman is all too real.
