Man of Steel may be one of the most-anticipated movies of the summer, but true-blue Superman buffs can get a head start on the action by checking out the forthcoming Warner Animation release, Superman Unbound.
It’s based on Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 graphic novel Superman: Brainiac. It’s the latest entry in the popular series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies, and will be released May 7th by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download. Here’s a clip featuring Matt Bomer (White Collar) and Stana Katic (Castle) discussing the relationship between their characters, Superman & Lois Lane.
SUPERMAN: UNBOUND finds the Man of Steel aptly handling day-to-day crime while helping acclimate Supergirl to Earth’s customs and managing Lois Lane’s expectations for their relationship. Personal issues take a back seat when the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton – Brainiac – begins his descent upon Earth.
Brainiac has crossed the universe, collecting cities from interesting planets – including Supergirl’s home city of Kandor – and now the all-knowing, ever-improving android has his sights fixed on Metropolis. Superman must summon all of his physical and intellectual resources to protect his city, the love of his life and his newly-arrived cousin.
