Warner Bros. Animation has revealed the trailer for Superman: Red Son, the next DC Universe Original Movie.
The clip features alternate takes on not just Superman but Wonder Woman, Batman, the Green Lantern Corp., Lex Luthor and more as the Cold War rages on in Communist Russia.
The animated film is an adaptation of the three-issue, 2003 miniseries by Mark Millar, Dave Johnson, and Killian Plunkett. The series is an Elseworlds tale that imagines a world where, instead of growing up in Kansas and fighting for “truth, justice, and the American Way,” Kal-El’s rocket lands in the USSR in the 1950s and Superman becomes a champion of Soviet values.
The story also recasts Batman, Wonder Woman, Brainiac, Green Lantern, and Lex Luthor through the lens of the Cold War. The film’s voice cast includes Jason Isaacs as Kal-El, Amy Acker as Lois Lane, Diedrich Bader as Lex Luthor, Phil Morris as James Olsen, Phil LaMarr as John Stewart, Vanessa Marshall as Wonder Woman, Sasha Roiz as Hal Jordan, Roger Craig Smith as Batman, Paul Williams as Brainiac and William Salyers as Joseph Stalin.
Superman: Red Son will be released in early 2020.
