SUPERMAN/BATMAN APOCALYPSE Is Coming
So with DC Animated kind of in the rough right now thanks to people not buying their movies, I guess they've decided to go with the few that did sell. On the heels, well kind of, of Batman Under The Hood (Due out July 27th) comes Superman/Batman Apocalypse (September 28th). The last Superman/Batman movie Public Enemies was pretty awesome and apparently sold really well so BAM the DC folks are at it again. Here's the skinny on the plot:
After a spaceship splashes down in Gotham City Harbor, Batman and Superman 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.
The best part is that Kevin Conroy will be performing Batman's voice and Tim Daly will handle Superman. Summer Glau (Chronicles of Sarah Conner) is voicing Supergirl but since I don't care about her saying anything besides "Again Iann? My poor body is so sore but you are soooo good that I can't say no" that doesn't matter much to me.
