James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy may be aiming for a release in 2025, but Adult Swim is delivering to us a new take on the Man of Steel with the upcoming My Adventures with Superman. The series is set to premiere next month, and AS has released the anime-esque intro.
Check the trailer for My Adventures with Superman down here:
We don’t really get that much on the story, but we do have a lot of focus on the trio of Clark Kent/Superman, Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen. We also get a look of who could be this show’s version of Jor-El, plus we also have a tease of the villains that Superman could be going up against on the show.
With the way that modern animation on superhero properties has gone, it seems that there has been an emphasis on violence with some of DC’s animated films getting the hard-R, as well as Amazon shows like Invincible and The Boys Presents: Diabolical.
This fresh take on Superman though does look like it’s going to be on the more positive, lighthearted side, and I’m all up for it. Hopefully it will keep Superman fans satiated while they wait for their first look at Superman: Legacy.
In this serialized coming-of-age story, we follow Clark (Jack Quaid) as he builds his secret Superman identity and embraces his role as the hero of Metropolis – and perhaps the world. Lois (Alice Lee), now growing into a star investigative journalist, takes aspiring photographer Jimmy Olsen (Ishmel Sahid) under her wing. All the while, Clark and Lois are falling in love, sharing adventures, taking down bad guys, stumbling over secrets, and discovering what it means to be Superman and Lois Lane.
My Adventures with Superman premieres on Max and Adult Swim on July 6.
