We ran across this incredibly cool two-minute animated short film on EW.com that encapsulates the complete history of Superman. From his start in Action Comics, to George Reeves’ TV interpretation, to Christopher Reeve, Smallville, and finally Man of Steel, along with everything in between, this is a fun and fast-moving tribute to the beloved super hero.
Open your closet door and join us as we head to Monstropolis with our special guest hosts T.J. and Julie from Pixar Post.
In this episode we discuss our memories and favorite scenes from Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. as well as what we want to see in Monsters University.
Also discussed: news from DreamWorks Animation, the newest Blu-rays, The Art of Monsters University book, and Julie’s journey into Oz.
My geek-o-metor just snapped in twain! Zack Snyder, director of comic book movies 300, Watchmen and the eagerly anticipated Man of Steel, is teaming up with Bruce Timm, creator of Batman: The Animated Series and Jay Oliver, director of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and story board artist on Man of Steel, to work on an animated Superman short for Warner Bros… and breathe.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has been churning out the feature-length animated films based on DC Comics at a regular clip all year-long with Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 and the upcoming Superman: Unbound, and the next DC Animated Universe feature will be based on the popular 2011 Flashpoint comic book event by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert, which was the much-publicized story that essentially ended 75 years of DC Comics continuity and led to the New 52 Comic line re-launch.
