Warner Home Video has provided SuperHeroHype with a new clip from Superman/Batman: Apocalypse along with four more images from the film, coming to Blu-ray and DVD on September 28. The clip depicts the harried first few minutes of time on Earth for Kara, a Kryptonian cousin of Superman who has not yet understood or harnessed her powers.
Based on the DC Comics series/graphic novel “Superman/Batman: Supergirl” by Jeph Loeb, Michael Turner & Peter Steigerwald, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse is produced by animation legend Bruce Timm and directed by Lauren Montgomery (Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths) from a script by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Tab Murphy (Gorillas in the Mist).
In Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, a spaceship splashes down in Gotham City Harbor — leading Batman and Superman to encounter a mysterious Kryptonian with powers as great as those of the Man of Steel. The Kryptonian is soon revealed to be Kara, cousin of Superman, who takes her under his wing to educate her about the ways of Earth. However, the villainous Darkseid has other plans. Seeing an opportunity to finally defeat Superman, Darkseid abducts and gains control of Kara, utilizing the powerful Kryptonian to do his bidding. It’s up to Batman and Superman to save Kara, but they’ll have to take the fight to Darkseid within his hostile world – where unknown, deadly threats lurk around every corner, including a brainwashed Kryptonian able to match Superman blow-for-blow.
Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy return to their seminal roles as Superman and Batman, respectively. The guest cast is headed by Andre Braugher as the daunting Darkseid. Summer Glau provides the voice of Supergirl, and Ed Asner reprises his “Superman: The Animated Series”/”Justice League” role as Granny Goodness.
