Warner Home Entertainment has announced that the 10th original DC animated movie, All-Star Superman, arrives on Blu-Ray and DVD on February 22, 2011.
In All-Star Superman, the Man of Steel rescues an ill-fated mission to the Sun (sabotaged by Lex Luthor) and, in the process, is oversaturated by radiation – which accelerates his cell degeneration. Sensing even he will be unable to cheat death, Superman ventures into new realms – finally revealing his secret to Lois, confronting Lex Luthor’s perspective of humanity, and attempting to ensure Earth’s safety before his own impending end with one final, selfless act.
The movie also features an all-star cast (pun intended) of talented voice actors
- James Denton – Superman
- Christina Hendricks – Lois Lane
- Anthony LaPaglia – Lex Luthor
- Ed Asner – Perry White
- Frances Conroy – Ma Kent
- Matthew Gray Gubler – Jimmy Olsen
- Linda Cardellini – Nasty
Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy), Catherine Cavadini (The Powerpuff Girls), Finola Hughes (General Hospital), Alexis Denisof (Angel), Obba Babatunde (That Thing You Do!), Michael Gough (Batman) and John DiMaggio (Futurama) round out the voice cast.
All-Star Superman Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack will include approximately 2 1/2 hours of intriguing bonus features, starting with all of the content available on the 2-Disc Special Edition DVD and adding:
- Featurette: “Incubating the Idea” – A conversation with Grant Morrison
- Audio Commentary: Bruce Timm and Grant Morrison
- All-Star Superman Digital Comic Book
- Standard and high definition versions of the feature film
- Digital copy on disc of the feature film
“The All-Star Superman comic was the work of two immensely talented creators at the absolute top of their game,” said Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer, DC Entertainment. “Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s All-Star Superman is one of those modern classics, and I can’t wait to see it brought to life as an animated film.”
