August 8, 2016 New ‘Man of Steel’ Image January 4, 2013 TheFlash1984 Wonderful piece of animation, I maybe wrong but I didn’t see a nod to Smallville, which having lasted ten years would have been nice. Also in that segment where he is the New52 suit I thought it looked great animated, and really looked good. Was there a Dean Cain nod? May have missed that in all e awesomeness. Neil At around 1:26 they show the Smallville water tower (from the series’ intro) just before the Kingdom Come Superman. I didn’t catch a reference to Dean Cain, nor Brandon Routh, which I can kinda understand – I mean, I’m sure they wanted to make it as compact but comprehensive as possible, and the must-includes are Chris Reeve and George Reeves. And I guess our new guy Henry. TheFlash1984 Aww, I am surprised I didn’t connect the dots, I saw it there must have just thought: Smallville the place rather than show. I agree they probably wanted to keep it short and sweet, and I can kinda understand leaving out Routh as his was a continuation of Reeve’s so arguably that was not a new interpretation. However, Cain’s was a fresh take and style of the character, which would have been nice of them to make a nod too…for some people this show perfected a lot of elements about the mythos of the character. That said I love the animated short, and the merger of music Rob Ó Conchúir Agreed, agreed, agreed. Dean Cain was my first Superman and in many ways no other version of Superman has so entertainingly showed Clark Kent as a normal, interesting person beyond the suit as that show did. I understand leaving Routh out maybe, but Cain and Welling should have been there. Not to mention more than 3 seconds of Lois. Neil Just saw this the other day – absolutely perfect tribute, created by Zack Snyder and of course Bruce Timm. It’s amazing how much they fit in ~2 minutes – would never have imagined that Mxyzptlk or Jimmy as Giant Turtle Man would make the cut. I think it could have had more iterations of Lois & Lex, but still, this is amazing. I hope Timm does something similar for Batman’s upcoming 75th! Adrian Edmondson Seeing this makes me want to own Man Of Steel that much more . Simply amazing . Bob Marshall Wonderful animated sequence for the greatest superhero of all-tine MrDean245 . Amazing work, absolutely love this Michael Lalaian Somewhere at WB there’s an executive angrily making phone calls asking about who authorized this expenditure. Bayne Hans Zimmer’s music still blows me away. Too bad the film didn’t match it.
