'Superman Unbound' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Feb 6, 2013 at 12:00 PM PST by

It's brains vs. brawn in the next direct-to-video DCU animated feature coming to Blu-ray this May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is preparing 'Superman Unbound' for Blu-ray on May 1.

Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 release “Superman: Brainiac,” Superman: Unbound finds the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton – Brainiac – descending upon Earth. 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, Supergirl.

The film’s stellar voicecast is led by Matt Bomer ('White Collar') as Superman, John Noble ('Fringe,' 'The Lord of the Rings' films) as Brainiac, Stana Katic ('Castle') as Lois Lane and Molly Quinn ('Castle') as Supergirl.

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').

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video and supplements will include: All-New Featurettes, Sneak Peek at the Next Justice League Movie, and From The Vaults: 4 Bonus Cartoons.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.98.
