The Man of Steel is back for another round of action in the new feature Superman: Unbound!
There is an unstoppable force blowing through the galaxy, destroying planets and only leaving destruction, and it’s next stop is Earth. Usually we would be lucky to have Superman around to save the day but this time Superman might not be enough…
The Official Synopsis:
Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 release “Superman: Brainiac,” SUPERMAN: UNBOUND finds the Man of Steel aptly handling day-to-day crime while helping acclimate Supergirl to Earth’s customs and managing Lois Lane’s expectations for their relationship. Personal issues take a back seat when the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton – Brainiac – begins his descent upon Earth. Brainiac has crossed the universe, collecting cities from interesting planets – including Supergirl’s home city of Kandor – and now the all-knowing, ever-improving android has his sights fixed on Metropolis. Superman must summon all of his physical and intellectual resources to protect his city, the love of his life and his newly-arrived cousin.
The mix between Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation have really brought out the big guns this time round, not only in animation and story but with a stellar cast to go with it!
Matt Bomer (White Collar) is to play Superman, John Noble (Fringe, The Lord Of The Rings) as Brainiac, Stana Katic (Castle) as Lois Lane and Molly Quinn (Castle) as Supergirl and so many more great actors, let alone voice actors. Golden Globe Award Winners like Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) as Ma Kent, Wade Williams (The Dark Knight Rises) as Perry White, Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey Show) as Steve Lombard, Stephen Root (Boardwalk Empire) as Zor-El and Alexander Gould (Weeds) as Jimmy Olsen.
