So today may have been a bit of a Superman-heavy news day, but for good reason. Some Smallville news, some DCU news, and now some even bigger news about the man in red and blue. Coming off the heals of Warner Premiere’s newest direct-to-dvd film, Superman & Batman: Apocalypse comes the very first trailer for All-Star Superman.
Based on the books by Grant Morrison and Frank Quietly about an alternate timeline where Superman is slowly dying, this animated feature looks to be one of the most grown-up stories the studio has told, even with Batman: Red Hood being as dark as it was. DC Animated regular Dwayne McDuffie is penning the script.
If the story and art isn’t enough to get you pumped, the cast should most certainly do it’s job. James Denton of Desperate Housewives is lending his voice for the Man of Steel, while Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks is stepping in as Lois Lane and even Empire Records manager Anthony LaPaglia joins in as the villainous Lex Luthor.
The film is set for a mid-Spring release of 2011, and MTV had the very first look at the trailer this morning. Now, you can check out the full trailer after the jump, and sound off on what you think!
