Superman: Unbound Blu-ray Details

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Universe have released the full details on the SUPERMAN: UNBOUND Blu-ray and DVD. The next animated film in the DCU has also a sneak peek at Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. Check out he full details below. 


The Official Press Release: A destructive force is devastating planets across the galaxy – with Earth next in its sights – and even Superman may not be capable of halting the terror in SUPERMAN: UNBOUND, the next entry in the ongoing series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies. Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, the all-new, PG-13 rated film arrives May 7, 2013 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as a Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP) and DVD ($19.98 SRP), On Demand and for Digital Download. The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack will include UltraViolet™*. 


Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 release "Superman: Brainiac," SUPERMAN: UNBOUND finds the Man of Steel aptly handling day-to-day crime while helping acclimate Supergirl to Earth’s customs and managing Lois Lane’s expectations for their relationship. Personal issues take a back seat when the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton – Brainiac – begins his descent upon Earth. Brainiac has crossed the universe, collecting cities from interesting planets – including Supergirl’s home city of Kandor – and now the all-knowing, ever-improving 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. 

 

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. Additional voices in the cast include Golden Globe Award winner Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) as Ma Kent, Wade Williams (The Dark Knight Rises) as Perry White, Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey Show, Office Space) as Steve Lombard, Stephen Root (Boardwalk Empire, Justified) as Zor-El, and Alexander Gould (Weeds) as Jimmy Olsen. 


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 adds an all-new chapter to the growing legacy of animated films featuring the Man of Steel and his epic challenges to maintain peace on Earth,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Home Video Vice President, Family & Animation and Partner Brands Marketing. “Matt Bomer’s voice epitomizes the All-American hero that is Superman, and John Noble counters that tone with a commanding, chilling delivery for Brainiac. A superhero is only as good as the depths of his opposition, and Noble brings out the best in his villainous portrayal of Brainiac.”


SUPERMAN: UNBOUND Blu-ray™ Combo Pack has over 4 1/2 hours of exciting content, including:


Standard and high definition versions of the feature film UltraViolet™*


Sneak Peek at Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie


Featurette – “Kandor: History of the Bottle City” – An all-new featurette.

Featurette – “Brainiac: Technology and Terror” – An all-new featurette.  Mostly machine, but part sentient being, Brainiac steals cities and destroys worlds.  Is he the most vile of Superman’s villainous foes?  Experience the Brainiac mythology and find out why Superman barely stands a chance!


Audio Commentary – Featuring members of the creative team: Mike Carlin, Bob Goodman and James Tucker.

 Something about the eye beams on the cover look piss poor to me. Or is it the thin ropey metalic danger that makes it look bad?

 Still have to get use to the new voice talent

 Anybody else think it's funny that DC titled flashpoint justice league: flashpoint. Sad I read where WB have said the only dc direct movies getting release now are superman, batman, or justice league. DC/WB is so scared that none of their characters can sell after wonder woman didn't do too well and the BO of Green Lantern.

 i wish they made a superman toon with the animation style that fire and ice had, and throw some cool 3D backround image to make it the best DC toon ever made. now that would be fucking great...because all the old and new Dc toons just keep changing supermans face and body , voice but they have never made a great toon movie to date. also could be like in the Heavy Metal style animation. some day maybe..

 theDVD cover looks cool why can't it be like that?

@shac2846 If you're talking about the Direct to DVD of Wonder Woman not selling well, that's just sad because it was a really REALLY good cartoon.  Probably one of the best of the bunch.

 I think we are long over due for a Superman Animated series. We´ve had nothing since STAS, since then Batman has gotten at least  4 (?? dunno, lost count) and there´s a new Batman animated series taking Young Justice´s spot, later this year.
