With Bruce W. Timm doing the writing and producing, and Andrea Romano doing the casting and voice direction, the new "Superman: Doomsday" film due out this fall is bound to look and feel (and sound) a lot like our beloved "Batman: The Animated Series."
Releasing on September 18 and retailing for $19.98, the DVD is based on DC Comics' graphic novel "The Death of Superman," where Superman dies saving the world from Doomsday. The 70 minutes of extras will include a feature with Timm on how the characters are developed, from initial concept to final animation. "Superman: Doomsday," the movie itself, is 75 minutes long.
And those who attend the Comic-Con International in San Diego will get a major bonus -- the film will be shown as the big event for Thursday, July 26. The film's creators will join in a panel discussion with the screening. Comic-Con International did an interview with Timm, which you can read at their website.
By the way, Paul Dini, another one of creative geniuses behind "Batman: TAS," will be a guest at the San Diego con, which runs July 26-29 at the San Diego Convention Center.
