“Superman: Red Son” Animated Film Planned?

Following news of a two-part DCAU direct-to-video adaptation of “Batman: The Long Halloween” being in development, Revenge of the Fans (via CBM) reports that an animated feature based on Mark Millar’s iconic Elseworlds comic “Superman: Red Son” is reportedly in the works.

In fact, the adaptation has seemingly set its voice cast already with the site offering a cast list. It includes Amy Acker, Anna Vocino, Diedrich Bader, Greg Chun, Jim Ward, Jason Isaacs, Jason Spisak, Jim Meskimen, Paul Williams, Phil Lamarr, Phil Morris, Roger Craig Smith, Sasha Roiz, Tara Strong, Travis Willingham, Vanessa Marshall, William Salyers and Winter Zoli co-star.

In the wake of the report being published, Bader reportedly posted a tweet saying “Excited be a part of this” before deleting it. The original comic is a ‘what if’ scenario in which Kal-El’s ship crashes in the Soviet Union instead of Kansas.

The three-issue series was published in 2003 and was nominated for the Eisner Award for best-limited series.
