The trailer for Superman: Red Son is live and exclusively at IGN.

I'm hyped :D!

Looks like a really strong adaption of the story. I haven't noticed them changing anything dramaticlly, and all the main and important moments seem to be intact :cool:.

Jason Isaac's Russian Superman will take some getting used to, but he has the emotional gravitas of the role down to pat :).

Diedrich Bader's Luthor is different but at the same time fits a Cold War-era Luthor ;).

It's weird. Sasha Roiz sounds a little too old for Hal Jordan, while Vanessa Marshall sounds younger compared to her past takes on Wonder Woman o_O.

I am disappointed I didn't get to hear Roger Craig Smith as Russian Batman :p.

Looks good. Spinning some classic characters into new but similar roles and present a familiar battle of power and ideologies. I've enjoyed Gotham by Gaslight as a stand alone so I figure I'll enjoy this one for being its own thing and maybe have a gripe or two. As always, should be fun to see how much of the comics was kept, what was deleted, what was changed.

That was the main appeal of the comic ;).

It feels like forever since I read this book but I'm looking forward to seeing this. I liked the book a lot. It was one of my favorite works by Millar and I wanted to see this adapted a long time ago. So long ago, that I haven't actually thought of it in forever.

Nice to have the release date confirmed already. The February 25th date was listed on Movies Anywhere since last month, and I brought it up on the previous page. (And a couple of posts below, Yojimbo correctly guessed the date for the physical release).

I'm also looking forward to the Phantom Stranger short.

If Flintstones = Grand Dad, what does Yogi Bear equal? Grand Bear?
It took me all day and most of the month, but I finally got my 2 laptops upgraded (SSD, new RAM, replaced any and all broken parts, full cleanup of useless programs and salvaging useful ones). It was rough work, but I enjoyed every minute of it!

Someday, I'm gonna do this for a living, honestly.

What is with Nickelodeon US refusing to air the Pineapple RV episode of SpongeBob? It's already been aired in some countries, how come America didn't get it yet?
Tex Avery's MGM Cartoons are finally getting a blu-ray release after years of us waiting, at last!
