|Based on the best selling graphic novel of all time, Superman: Doomsday is going to be a straight-to-DVD release September 18, 2007. The epic story of “The Death of Superman” will now be adapted into a 70-minute animated movie. For the first time ever, for a Superman cartoon, it will have a rating of PG-13 and have a different look from the previous cartoons (Superman TAS and Justice League)
Here is the official description from Warner Brothers:
“In an epic tale of sacrifice, Superman battles an intergalactic serial killer in a superpowered Armageddon – “Superman: Doomsday“. After Superman makes the ultimate sacrifice to save Metropolis by giving his life to defeat the foe, those who loved him the most mourn their fallen hero and friend. But a world without Superman proves to be short-lived when the Man of Steel mysteriously returns. Or does he?”
Sorry to the die-hard fans looking for an adaptation similiar in length and depth to the novelization. With the movie only being 70 minutes long expect alot of the story to be trimmed. Also sorry to those expecting the original voice cast from Superman TAS and Justice League. Superman/Clark Kent will now be voiced by Adam Baldwin, Anne Heche as Lois Lane, and James Marsters as Lex Luthor.
