Mark Millar is the author behind some of the most memorable comics out there including Old Man Logan and Marvel Civil War. Interestingly enough, DC has greenlit one of his best works for an animated film, and we should be gearing up for the release of Superman: Red Son.
According to Revenge of the Fans, Red Son is officially underway, and we should expect some kind of announcement in this year’s San Diego Comic-Con with a release date set in 2020. We also have a cast list for the movie, but we have yet to know who’s voicing who.
RotF has been nice enough to list down the former roles of all the actors though:
Amy Acker (Has voiced The Huntress in the past)
Anna Vocino (Has voiced Oracle several times)
Diedrich Bader (Has voiced several DC characters, But Is Best known for Batman)
Jim Ward (Has voiced Commissioner Gordon various times)
Jason Isaacs (Has voiced Lex Luthor, Sinestro, and Ra’s Al Ghul)
Jason Spisak (Has frequently voiced Wally West)
Jim Meskimen (Has voiced Batman and Victor Fries)
Paul Williams (Has frequently voiced Oswald Cobblepott, aka The Penguin)
Phil Lamarr (Has voiced a wide variety of DC characters)
Phil Morris (Has voiced a wide variety of DC characters)
Roger Craig Smith (Voiced Batman in Batman Ninja)
Tara Strong (Best known for voicing Harley Quinn, has also done Raven and Batgirl)
Travis Willingham (Has voiced Superman in several Lego DC projects)
Vanessa Marshall (She’s Black Canary on Young Justice, has also been Poison Ivy)
William Salyers (Has voiced both The Penguin and Hugo Strange)
Superman: Red Son was amazing, and it remains to be one of my favorite stories in the Elseworlds series of DC. Sure you have some great Batman stories like Crimson Mist and Gotham by Gaslight, but Red Son probably has the most interesting arc for Superman—not to mention great alternate versions of Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Lex Luthor.
Here’s an official synopsis:
“Imagine a reality where the world’s most powerful super-being does not grow up in Smallville, Kansas – or even America, for that matter…
SUPERMAN: RED SON is a vivid tale of Cold War paranoia, that reveals how the ship carrying the infant who would later be known as Superman lands in the midst of the 1950s Soviet Union. Raised on a collective, the infant grows up and becomes a symbol to the Soviet people, and the world changes drastically from what we know – bringing Superman into conflict with Batman, Lex Luthor and many others.”
No release date has been announced for Superman: Red Son.
