The Dark Knight Returns Part Two is DC’s first of three animated flicks to come out this year. While TDKR2 is now available for download with a DVD/Blu-ray release later this month, DC is already getting fans psyched for their next project Superman: Unbound. The second of three animated films will be released later this year and star Matt Bomer as the man of steel. The story is based on Geoff Johns Superman arc titled Brainiac. A behind the scenes feature has been released, but the audio isn’t amazing.
TV Guide also got the first official still along with a few words from producer James Tucker. The producer commented on casting Bomer for the lead role:
He had a jovial energy that was a little counter to what we usually do with Superman. But he also had that decency in his voice that Superman really needs no matter which way you go with him.
Tucker also talked about the choice of John Noble (Fringe) as Brainiac:
I could listen to him all day. John had a lot of energy and he really got into the psychology of what was motivating Brainiac. He brought a level of intelligence, but also that slight bit of crazy that a super villain needs to have under the surface to make him compelling.
The film comes out later this year and stars the aforementioned Bomer and Noble as well as Stana Katic as Lois Lane and Molly Quinn as Kara/Supergirl.
