Back in May, a new series of DC Showcase animated shorts was announced spotlighting some of lesser known characters of DC Comics such as Sgt. Rock, Adam Strange, and Sandman’s Death. Today, as an early Christmas treat for all you DC animated fans out there, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment released the first images from the DC Showcase Phantom Stranger animated short depicting the two lead characters – the Phantom Stranger (voiced by Peter Serafinowicz of The Tick fame) and the mysterious Seth (voiced by Smallville‘s Michael Rosenbaum).
“Phantom Stranger” has Bruce Timm (“Batman: The Killing Joke”) at the helm as executive producer & director, and the short is written by Ernie Altbacker (“Teen Titans: The Judas Contract”). Set in the 1970s, the short follows young adult Jess as she joins her friends at a party in a dilapidated mansion hosted by the mysterious Seth. When odd things begin to happen to Jess and her friends, the Phantom Stranger intervenes to try and save her from a dreary fate. In addition to Serafinowicz and Rosenbaum, “Phantom Stranger” also features the voices of Natalie Lander, Grey Griffin and Roger Craig Smith.
DC’s acclaimed Elseworlds story, “Superman: Red Son,” the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe Movies, arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital starting February 25, 2020, and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-rayCombo Pack on March 17, 2020.
