Superman/Batman: Apocalypse in September

Source: MovieWeb

One of the greatest team-ups in super hero history is reunited once again in this newest DC Comics animated adventure. DC has been pumping out some pretty decent PG-13 animated flicks the past few years (See Green Lantern: First Flight and Justice League: The New Frontier) and this newest movie, due out on September 28th, should continue that trend.

Superman/Batman: Apocalypse sees the Man of Steel (voiced by Tim Daly) and The Dark Knight (Voiced, of course, by Kevin Conroy) join forces when a mysterious ship crash lands in Gotham harbor. It's lone passenger, Kara (voiced by Summer Glau), may just be another survivor of the lost planet of Krypton. But before Superman and Batman can get to her the omnipotent Darkseid manages to use Kara's Kryptonian strength for his own malignant purposes. Two of the greatest heroes in comic book history may not be enough to take down a villainous god with an invincible slave.

Again, on September 28th Superman/Batman: Apocalypse will be released as a simple no extras DVD, and a special features filled 2-Disc Special Edition DVD and Blu-ray. The Special Edition DVD and Blu-ray also include a 10-minute Green Arrow animated adventure.

Special Edition DVD and Blu-ray Extras Include:

  • DC Showcase: Green Arrow (10 min)
  • Sneak Peak at the Next DC Universe Animated Original Movie (10 min)
  • Featurette: Supergirl: The Last Daughter of Krypton
  • 2 bonus episodes from animated television series handpicked by Bruce W. Timm
  • 2 additional bonus TV series episodes handpicked by Timm
  • Digital Copy

Additional Exclusive Blu-ray Extras Include:

  • Featurette: The New Gods - This documentary covers Darkseid's story, particularly in reference to the adaptation of Superman/Batman: Apocalypse.
  • All-New Featurette Pods
  • Orion - Orion follows an almost Shakespearean arc culminating in the slaying of his father, Darkseid. This mini-featurette shines a light on this classically tragic character.
  • Mister Miracle - This featurette focuses on the greatest escape artist the universe has ever known
