After Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, it’s a new day and a reset for the DC animated films. After debuting the trailer for Superman: Man of Tomorrow earlier this week, Warner Bros. has debuted the box art and release date for the upcoming movie. The film will hit digital on August 23, before the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack arrives on September 8.
Here’s the official description from Warner Bros. Home Video:
“It’s the dawn of a new age of heroes, and Metropolis has just met its first. But as Daily Planet intern Clark Kent – working alongside reporter Lois Lane – secretly wields his alien powers of flight, super-strength and x-ray vision in the battle for good, there’s even greater trouble on the horizon. Follow the budding hero as he engages in bloody battles with intergalactic bounty hunter Lobo and fights for his life to halt the attack of power-hungry alien Parasite. The world will learn about Superman … but first, Superman must save the world!”
