Zack Snyder Will Produce a Superman 75th Anniversary Animated Short
Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is collaborating with Bruce W. Timm and Warner Bros. on a new Superman short film, in conjunction with the 75th Anniversary of this iconic superhero. The studio has released a logo that will be used on all of its Superman-themed products and initiatives, which you can take a look at below.
No story details have been confirmed for the two-minute short, but insiders claim it will be one continuous shot without edits. The short will pay homage to the various incarnations of Superman throughout the years, including Max Fleischer's cartoons, film performances by George Reeves and Christopher Reeve, iconic versions drawn by artists Wayne Boring, Curt Swan and Neal Adams, and Henry Cavill's interpretation in Man of Steel. Warner Bros. and DC are planning on showing an animatic version of the short at San Diego Comic-Con 2013, before it debuts this fall in multiple platforms.
The year-long celebration kicked off earlier this month with the release of Superman: Unbound on Blu-ray and DVD, and continues with the June 14 release of Man of Steel, WB Interactive's Infinite Crisis online game, and more Superman shorts that will debut during Cartoon Network's DC Nation animation block this fall.
