Trivia

While this film features the same character designs, general look, style, and most same cast members of as Superman: The Animated Series (1996), the creative team decided to recast villains just as they had done before with Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman (2003). Lance Henriksen takes over for Corey Burton as Brainiac, Powers Boothe takes over for Clancy Brown as Lex Luthor, and 'Tara Strong' takes over for Lisa Edelstein as Mercy Graves. See more »

Goofs

Brainiac changes in size through the movie. For example he becomes just as large to break through the street and in another shot he is just three times larger than Luthor's battle suit. See more »

Quotes

Mercy Graves: You know something news boy, you're kinda cute
Jimmy Olsen: [Shyly] I... I am?
Mercy Graves: To bad I have to break you.
[flicks card onto Jimmy's face and kicks him]

not the animated Superman I'd come to love
19 June 2006 | by groonk-1See all my reviews

Paul Dini and Bruce Timm had nothing to do with this...thing. And it shows. Filled with clichés and trite plot devices that even a one year old would be bored with. This is nothing like the animated series that was clever on so many levels.

They couldn't even grab Clancy Brown or Lisa Edelstein to reprise their roles as Lex Luthor and Mercy Graves. The new voices were more than a little off putting. As was the entire story in general. It should be a crime to mar a project that had such a good run years earlier.

If you want your animated Superman fix, for yourselves or, better yet, for your kids, don't invest any money in this DVD. Reach back a few years and grab the proper animated series.
