Zack Snyder And Bruce Timm Making New Superman Short Film To Mark His 75th Anniversary

75 years of superman logoRich may well have more to say about Warner Bros. plans to mark the 75th anniversary of Superman across all manner of media, but I’m very interested in one part of the studio’s plans in particular.

Zack Snyder has apparently conceived a new, animated short that will, in a single unbroken shot, pay homage to Superman’s evolution over the least three quarters of a century.

We’ll apparently see the short pay homage to:

Max Fleischer’s cartoons, on-screen portrayals by George Reeve and Christopher Reeves, iconic versions drawn by artists Wayne Boring, Curt Swan and Neal Adams, on up through Henry Cavill’s interpretation in Man of Steel.

What no Brandon Routh? Harsh.

Collaborating with Snyder will be Bruce Timm and Man of Steel storyboard artist and Justice League: Flashpoint director Jay Oliva. Geoff Johns, Mike Carlin and Peter Girardi are somehow involved too.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, an unfinished version of the short, likely just an animatic, will be previewed at Comic-Con in San Diego. We’ll then be seeing it in full later in the year… but we don’t know where, just yet. I might guess that the Man of Steel DVD and Blu-ray is a likely home for it, though it maybe not the only one.

Warners are going to keep pushing the Superman 75 angle, branded with the logo in this very story, for the rest of the year. And then next year? Why, it’s the 75th anniversary of Batman…
