Superman/Batman: Apocolypse!

It's being released on Sep 28, 2010 (a month earlier than first reported). Here's the box art...no details yet but an official announcement is expected at comic con and I wouldn't be surprised if we also got our first teaser trailer. I'm excited about this as I'm a fan of the current version of Kara Zor-El.

Re: Superman/Batman: Apocolypse!

This is also under discussion in the Supergirl thread. I like the idea of Summer Glau playing Supergirl, but I wasn't fond of the Ed McGuinness art style they emulated in Public Enemies and I'm even less fond of the Michael Turner art style which they may emulate here. Also, PE was, to me, the worst and dumbest of the DCU movies, a waste of Daly, Conroy, and Brown, so I'm not overjoyed that it's getting a sequel.

I enjoyed Public Enemies, it felt like an episode of Superman: TAS. The art style I did not enjoy as much, but I am so glad that the original voices are back again.

I'll be looking forward to it! I liked Public Enemies. Though obviously it's superficial fun.

Re: Superman/Batman: Apocolypse!

^ This. The first two or three arcs of Superman/Batman were part of DCU continuity along with introducing the kid Toyman from Japan and showing the downfall of Lex's Presidency and introducing the Turner Supergirl. I loved the first two arcs. I'm a Turner fans so I thought it was great that he was doing the art. I think he passed away from his battle with cancer like a year after that. I'm really looking forward to this.

Oh God, I hated this story arc. Superman Batman had an amazing ability to get stupider with each progressive story, no matter how often I'd thought they'd hit bottom.

Re: Superman/Batman: Apocolypse!

The first two arcs were amazing and hugely important to DC continuity. The third one was bascially one big what-if... and the fourth one was also not really real, though it did function as a sequel to Emperor Joker so that was cool. After that Loeb left the title and I didn't follow it anymore.

Interesting...The cover art looks weird, though.

Needs Michael Ironside as the voice of Darkseid.

And that's saying something considering how stupid the very FIRST arc was.

Re: Superman/Batman: Apocolypse!

It's always amazing to find out how much fans hate stuff on the internet. I'm in the minority as I pointed out above but I really enjoyed the first couple of arcs.

Yeah I'm surprised Supergirl isn't front and center on the cover in all her red n' blue glory. Advertising, man.

Wasn't really a fan of Public Enemies but would nice if we can hear Kevin Conroy again.
