Based on the Geoff Johns / Gary Frank 2008 release Superman: Brainiac, Superman: Unbound finds the Man of Steel aptly handling day-to-day crime while helping acclimate Supergirl to Earth's customs and managing Lois Lane's expectations for their relationship. Personal issues take a back seat when the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton - Brainiac - begins his descent upon Earth. Brainiac has crossed the universe, collecting cities from interesting planets - including Supergirl's home city of Kandor - and now the all-knowing, ever-improving android has his sights fixed on Metropolis. Superman must summon all of his physical and intellectual resources to protect his city, the love of his life and his newly-arrived cousin.

Yesterday was Stana Katic's birthday. She voices Lois Lane in this animated adventure. To celebrate, she joined John Noble as Brianiac for a series of video interviews, which were released along with four new photos.

Watch as John Noble of Fringe fame discusses how he found the voice of Brianiac, played a restrained vs. unrestrained character, and tells of his history growing up listening to Superman on the radio. Stana Katic discusses Lois Lane's role in this new movie, her own personal view of Lois, and even offers an impression of what its like to do voiceover work. The actress also compares Lois Lane to her Castle character Kate Beckett.
