ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, the animated straight to DVD movie from DC Comics and Warner Premiere, was released on February 22, 2011. Dwayne McDuffie, who wrote the script adaption of Grant Morrison’s and Frank Quitely’s comic book mini-series, unfortunately passed away on the previous day due to some complications from a surgical procedure.
The director was Sam Liu. Some of the major voice cast members were: James Denton as Clark Kent / Superman, Christina Hendricks as Lois Lane, Anthony LaPaglia as Lex Luthor, Ed Asner as Perry White, Matthew Grey Gubler as Jimmy Olsen and Alexis Denisof as Dr. Leo Quintum.
This episode is mostly a spoiler free review of the movie, along with some of my views of its portrayal of the Man of Steel, compared with some other Superman films.
