An abundance of first-look images for DC’s next animated feature Superman: Man of Tomorrow was released and they offer a pretty good glimpse of what the film looks like plus some key details.
Among them is a young-adult Clark Kent playing at being a hero without the cape and beholding a glowing pyramid from Krypton bearing the symbol for the House of El.
DCUVERSE posted a gallery of stills to Instagram. Swipe through it down below to check out a crestfallen juvenile Clark, Clark in glasses, Lois Lane, Lobo, Martian Manhunter, Jor-El & Lara, Ma & Pa Kent, Perry White, Lex Luthor, and more:
An additional image of Lex and Superman in a lab or command center setting was released by Entertainment Weekly. That’s below.
Plot details are few but Clark works as an intern at the Daily Planet while he figures out how to fight crime and save the good people of Metropolis. Sounds very much like a “starting-out version” for Superman.
The animation is noticeably different. Cosmic Book News reports there is a reason but to explain would be to spoil things. A new DC animated universe is set to launch soon and that may have something to do with it.
The cast is as follows:
Darren Criss as Superman
Zachary Quinto as Lex Luthor
Alexandra Daddario as Lois Lane
Brett Dalton as Lobo
Ryan Hurst as Parasite
Ike Amadi as Martian Manhunter
Neil Flynn as Jonathan Kent
Bellamy Young as Martha Kent
