Trailer for Superman: Unbound

Written by Robert Wallis

With Zack Snyder‘s live action Man of Steel soaring across the skies towards us, you could be forgiven for thinking that was all the Superman we were going to get for the foreseeable future. Not so. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s…

Superman: Unbound has been announced as the newest release in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line (or, to coin a much-needed acronym, DCUAOM for short). It features the vocal talents of Matt Bomer as Superman, Stana Katic as Lois Lane, Molly Quinn as Supergirl, and John Noble as Brainiac.

Check out the trailer below!

Cosmic Book News offers the following synopsis:

Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 release “Superman: Brainiac,” 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.

The voice cast also features Wade Williams as Perry White, Francis Conroy as Ma Kent, Stephen Root as Zor-El, and Alexander Gould as Jimmy Olsen. Superman: Unbound is due for release on DVD and BluRay on May 7th.
