Superman vs The Elite Clip

The Joe Kelly story comes to life

Superman vs. The Elite, a DC Comics Premiere Movie, is produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video. The all-new, PG-13 rated film is scripted by award-winning comics writer Joe Kelly and the story is adapted from his original 2001 DC Comics release, “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way?” The single-issue comic, Action Comics #775, was lauded by Wizard Magazine as the “Greatest Superman Story of All Time,” and ranked the epic tale at No. 21 on its list of the “Top 100 Comics of the last 30 years.”

In Superman vs. The Elite, Superman's effectiveness as a super hero comes into question when a new group of super powerful crusaders, known as "The Elite," appear on the scene.  As super heroes, the Elite know no bounds, and are more than willing to kill, even on a massive scale, to stop villainy -- putting them on a collision course with the ever-ethical, yet preferably non-lethal Man of Steel.

George Newbern (Father of the Bride) reprises his Justice League animated television role as Superman, and primetime television star Pauley Perrette (NCIS) provides the voice of Lois Lane. Downes steps in as Manchester Black, leader of The Elite. David Kaufman (Justice
League: Doom) also reprises his Justice League TV series role as Jimmy Olsen.

The film is directed by Michael Chang (Batman: Brave and the Bold). Bruce Timm (Batman: Year One) is executive producer, and Alan Burnett (Green Lantern: Emerald Knights) is producer. 

Superman vs. The Elite arrives June 12th, 2012 from Warner Home Video.

 Got a few DC animated DVD's but I'm not too sure about this one.

From what I'm reading this is a story line, but one I'm not familiar with.  My first thought was that this sounded a lot like 'Kingdom Come', which I'd give a testicle to see done properly.

@violator me too :/ But I like my DC animated movies and this is a great story.

 I understand the need to evolve a style just so it doesn't get stagnant but I prefer the old 90's style to the new anime rip-off style, it looks a little crude as it doesn't have the fine lines that come with most anime. That said I watch all the movies, my favorites were the Red Hood, & Wonder-woman. This Kinda of reminds me of The Alternative Authority, which as DC owns the rights, WOULD make an awesome Anime style feature.

DC Animated movies are good, but how many Supermen and Batsy cartoons can they keep making to appease the fans until finally someone says, "Whoa! We need to do some of these stories in live-action film!"

Bruce Timm is still my all-time favorite animator... that is all.

I thought it was going to be a clip from Snyder's movie...what happened to it?? No news for months, should be a trailer by now
