    Everything released aboutt his show at DC Fandom has already been released in the past. Im not a fan of Lois's look tbh.

    Im guessing 2 season order will be in the same vein as Harley Quinn. 2-13 episode seasons that are animated together and broken up to 2 seasons.

    From what I understand, the test scores for the show were over the roof, "the best we've ever seen" said one person working on the show, which might be the reason why they seem so bullish about it.
    In any case I'm looking forward to it because as I said before it's been over 15 years since the last Superman focused animated series (Legion of Superheroes) and it would be nice to see Superman regularly on TV again (I don't watch Superman & Lois).

    I am ready for Josie Campbell to give me the Mxy episode that makes me cry.

    Also, I can't help but look at that image and think "best friend squad".

    One of the producers. Wrote for She-ra and Camp Cretaceous. Also a story editor for those series.

    Oh, she did Camp cretaceous?! That was amazing show, I sat down and watched it with my niece and nephew and couldn't get enough, in fact I enjoyed it a whole lot more than they did and honestly I'm not sure what that says about me or the show itself :yay:.
    She-ra wasn't half bad either but just not for me.

    Though it will be 2 seasons, did they say how many episodes per season?

    It's not CalArts style (and the CalArts Style thing is such a stupid thing as it's thrown at everything when it doesn't actually fit what it's being thrown at). Isn't Jake Wyatt on this? He has that cool webcomic he does.

    Thank goodness for that. I think this has the potential to be something special.

    Yes. When Warner Bros. Announced the series I believe the press release said it’ll air on both Cartoon Network and HBO Max. Same with Caped Crusader.

    This is part of Warner Discovery's plan of having Superman as one of their top priorities. Next year will be his and Lois' 85th Anniversary.

    A bunch of character designs and descriptions may have leaked.

    The Superman suit is different, lacking the trunks that were first shown off, and with other differences, so unsure if the leak is valid or some of the designs have slightly changes.

    Mxy looks very different. Very much like a character from She-ra. Not the old guy, but sort of a young elf look.

    Steve Lombard seems to be the trio's mentor at the Daily Planet. And Vicki Vale, now asian, will be doing a lot of anti-Superman news pieces, so I am assuming nemesis for Lois in a way.

    Zor-el and Lara also have very different designs, with what seems to be white and grey armor. Zor-el is described as war weary, with a comparison to MCU's Odin. Lara is where it gets interesting. Lara is apparently an antagonist, a creation recreated by Brainiac. And sounds very warrior like, and is described as being disappointed in her son. Unknown how much of that is Brainiac's meddling, though based on Jor-el's description and both their looks, I think they were a bit more warrior esque in their pasts than previous versions.

    I’m honestly most excited for Mxy. We already got the ideal animated Brainiac story with his arc in STAS.

    Said this on Reddit, but there’s some stuff I like and some stuff I’m not sure about. Nothing in the latter category looks like it’ll ruin the show for me.

    So we’re getting season three of Superman and Lois next year and then a new Superman solo animated series after 20+ years in the same year…. Oh boy we gonna be eating with Superman content on television next year.

    I think I’m going to watch this on Cartoon Network though because it feels right. Also love the designs from the leak and I find the character descriptions interesting with some good and some wait and see.

    I just realized, with the amount of Lower Decks I watch, this is going to be a weird experience.
