During this weekend’s New York Comic-Con 2013, DC Entertainment brought a special Superman 75th Anniversary panel to the Main Stage auditorium. During the panel, which celebrated the Man Of Steel’s importance in comics and pop culture, a special animated short was shown to the audience that featured Superman through the years.
DC has now released the 2-minute animated short online – watch it here below. And head’s up, it might leave you a little teary-eyed.
Put together by Man Of Steel director Zack Snyder and leader of DC’s animated universe movies, Bruce Timm, the short includes the many incarnations of Superman, starting from his comic book origins in Action Comics #1 to the animated series, TV shows, and feature films. Along with the Kryptonian, we get to see some of his adversaries, like Bizarro, and allies, like Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen.
The short will be included on the Man Of SteelBlu-ray and Blu-ray Edition releases, due out on November 12, 2013.
The attendees of the NYCC panel, which included those of us from the Doom Crew covering the Con, were delighted with the short, so they ended up showing it again at the end. Christopher Reeve’s animated appearance got some loud cheers, as did Alex Ross’s Kingdom Come Superman.
