Superman Unbound, based on Geoff Johns’ 2008 Action Comics story arc, finds the Man of Steel squaring off against the planet-destroying alien machine, Brainiac, while balancing his responsibilities to Lois Lane and cousin Kara (Supergirl). The voice cast includes White Collar‘s Matt Bomer as Superman, Fringe‘s John Noble as Brainiac and Castle‘s Stana Katic and Molly Quinn as Lois and Kara, respectively.
In Superman Unbound, we find Brainiac descending upon the earth. Which is something of a problem, since it was Brainiac that was responsible for the destruction of Krypton. Brainiac has crossed the universe, collecting cities from interesting planets –
Kandor, included – and now the all-knowing, ever-evolving 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 from Krypton’s sister planet Argo.
Supervising Producer James Tucker (Justice League, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) also directs the film from a script by Bob Goodman
(Warehouse 13, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns).
Superman Unbound will release on Blu-ray, DVD and later this year – but we’ll have some more on this once we get to Wonder Con in Anaheim late this March. Then in two more months, Man of Steel comes out, and that’s scheduled for May 15th.
Aaah, yes. It’s going to be a great summer.
