    More great news!

    So the short WILL be on the blu ray

    UPDATE:
    Just saw the short. It is two minutes long, and all it is is a tribute to Superman's 75th Anniversary by showing all of his incarnations from 38-present. You see an animated Siegel/Shuster Superman, Curt Swan Superman, Superman vs. Ali, Dan Jurgens and New 52 Supermans, as well as the return of the Fleischer's Superman, and you see an animated George Reeves Superman, animated Christopher Reeve, return of the Superfriends and STAS and of course, animated Henry Cavill. Timm revealed that some that didn't make it resulted in covers or panel shots, like Kingdom Come Superman, and just in case someone asks: no, Dean Cain nor Tom Welling, or anyone else that I didn't mention, are not in this short. Timm offered little BTS, saying that this was originally a DC Nation short until it was changed, but it may be seen on DC Nation anyways.

    The short reminded me of how Bandai celebrated the 30th anniversary of their Gundam anime franchise, and they did this video of all of the main Gundam mechas, showcased and together. If you watch this video, you will get a good idea of what the Superman short is:


    P.S. Timm did say he liked MOS.

    Beautiful... :hrt:

    Think it covered just about everything. Was it missing an interpretation for anybody else?

    Awesome. Even the music moves through time, starting with Williams and ending on Zimmer. Really nice idea all round.

    Seriously; fantastic short!

    As a Superman fan it really grabbed me – and filled me with pure joy.

    The way the music changed, from Williams to Zimmer, was so neat.

    Thanks for that, that was really cool. Though I didn't catch anything from LnC which seems like a shame... maybe I just missed it? Did anyone else notice something I didnt?

    They had way too much stuff which is why LnC and SR was cut.

    Loved seeing Timm revisit (even for just a few seconds) the STAS character designs.

    Anyone kinda want to see them do the same with Batman next year? I'd love to see an animated version of Keaton's Batman.

    Yeah, I thought of the same thing. This is so great, I want so see more, and one for Batman has the same potential.

    Kane Batman, West Batman, O'neil/Adams Batman, Miller Batman, BTAS Batman, Keaton/Burton Batman, Nolan/Bale Batman etc.

    Loved the short, I felt that Smallville was honored with the water tower with the show logo on it?

    Yeah that's what I thought. It was enough for me, but when they throw in obscure/unpopular aspects loke the red and blue Superman, I guess some people want to know why more prominent stuff wasn't bettrt represented.
