Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Superman: Red Son, the next entry in the popular series of DC Universe Movies, is available TODAY on Digital, 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack.

Based on DC’s famed Elseworlds tale from 2003, Superman: Red Son takes place in an alternate reality where the spaceship bearing the last survivor of Krypton crash lands – not in rural Kansas, but in Stalinist Russia. Can this Cold War-era Earth survive the coming of a Soviet Superman?

In this all-new clip, Superman, Wonder Woman and Brainiac discuss the moral and ethical side of the tactics Superman has employed toward achieving his goals for the Soviet Union … and the world. Golden Globe-nominated actor Jason Isaacs provides the voice of Superman, while Vanessa Marshall is Wonder Woman and Academy Award winner Paul Williams is Brainiac.

Check Out an all-new clip that finds the Elseworlds/Russian version of Batman taking on a squadron of helicopters — as the forces are attempting to capture/kill him.

Roger Craig Smith provides the voice of Batman in Superman: Red Son.

Director Matt Reeves Teases His Batman

Director Matt Reeves has posted the first look of Robert Pattison as Batman in the now shooting The Batman. The video was shot by the film’s director of photography Greig Fraser with music by the film’s composer Michael Giacchino.

The look is reminiscent of Christopher Nolan’s take on the character in his trilogy. The design has a grounded design about it, like hockey equipment meets skating pads meets police armor. We also get a first look at the new Bat-symbol.

The Batman is set to come to theaters on June 25, 2021.

Morbius Gets Its First Trailer and Creates a Lot of Questions

There’s high anticipation for Morbius, the first “Spider-Man Universe” film from Sony after the release of Venom. A picture of Spider-Man can be seen on a wall in one scene in the trailer, though it’s a screenshot of the “Raimi Suit” from the Playstation 4 video game.

Jared Leto plays the lead Michael Morbius. Dangerously ill with a rare blood disorder, and determined to save others suffering his same fate, Dr. Morbius attempts a desperate gamble. What at first appears to be a radical success soon reveals itself to be a remedy potentially worse than the disease.

The most intriguing part of the trailer is the surprise appearance by Michael Keaton at the end. Keaton played the Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming. At the end of the film he’s in jail and wearing a white suit that’s very similar to this tease. It’s unknown what his role will be in this film or if he’s playing the Vulture again. That latter bit would make Morbius part of the MCU. It’s also a fun wink to Batman and Joker, which Keaton and Leto played in different films.

Morbius stars Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson.

The film is directed by Daniel Espinosa from a story by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, and screenplay by Sazama, Sharpless, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway.

Morbius was created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane and debuted in 1971 in The Amazing Spider-Man #101.

Morbius comes to theaters July 31, 2020.

Birds of Prey Gets a Second Trailer

With less than a month to go, Birds of Prey has gotten a second trailer giving us a better idea as to what we can expect. Gotham’s worst brings out their best. Meet Harley Quinn, Black Canary, Huntress, Renee Montoya, and Cassandra Cain.

You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.

Margot Robbie returns as Harley Quinn, alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress; Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary; Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya; Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz; and Ewan McGregor as Roman Sionis. Newcomer Ella Jay Basco also stars as Cassandra “Cass” Cain in her feature film debut.

Directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodson, the film is based on characters from DC Comics.

Birds of Prey is in theaters February 7, 2020.
