The much-anticipated ALL-STAR SUPERMAN DVD is coming out in 2/22/11. Based on the popular tale by Grant Morrison, the animated film includes James Denton (Desperate Housewives) as Superman, Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) as Lois Lane, and Anthony LaPaglia (Without A Trace) as Lex Luthor, with additional voices by Ed Asner. Frances Conroy, Matthew Gray Gubler, Linda Cardellini, Arnold Vosloo, Catherine Cavadini, Finola Hughes, Alexis Denisof, Obba Babatunde, Michael Gough, and John DiMaggio. Creative credits include Bruce Timm executive producer, Sam Liu, director and Dwayne McDuffie, writer. More info here.


  1. Not sure I would have called it “All-Star Superman”, since that really doesn’t mean much to the story. To the casual viewer, they may be wondering who the “all-stars” are.

  2. I don’t what it is with the continuous cheap gouging of WB’s packaging and design of late- it seems the more you shell out for the two disc editions – the less you get in the special features. Now you’re absolutely forced to buy the blu-ray edition if you want the entire complete package (i,e; all the featurettes and bonus cartoons) – NOW with the release of the DC Animated Shorts collection: Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam last month- you have to shell out extra just to hear the commentaries on Blu Ray. Also the quality in the disc themselves has totally diminished (appearing as if they were freshly shitted off of a burner) and they don’t even include animated menus anymore nor nary a sign of a easter egg.

    But yet, I spend more money on these animated discs than on the comics they’re based on themselves.

    In case no one’s figured it out yet: I DON’T OWN A FREAKIN’ BLU- RAY PLAYER and neither do I plan on getting one in the foreseeable future (unless someone’s willing to write me a regular weekly paycheck)!!

    Also to put the icing on the proverbial arsenic creme filled cake – BEST BUY stopped packaging them with the bonus action figures.

    Since the link appears to be broken- can anyone please tell me on who’s featured in the animated short?
