Superman: Unbound Blu-ray (Updated)

Posted February 21, 2013 12:05 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment has officially detailed the Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Combo Pack release of Superman: Unbound, the next entry in the DCU Animated Original Movie series. Featuring the voice talents of Matt Bomer as Superman, John Noble as the villainous Brainiac, Stana Katic as Lois Lane and Molly Quinn as Supergirl, Superman: Unbound arrives on May 7th.

Synopsis: Based on the 2008 comicbook arc "Superman: Brainiac" by writer Geoff Johns and artist Gary Frank, Superman: Unbound finds the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton -- Brainiac -- descending upon Earth. Brainiac has crossed the universe, collecting cities from interesting planets, Kandor included, and now the all-knowing, ever-evolving android has his sights fixed on Metropolis. Superman must summon all of his physical and intellectual resources to protect his city, the love of his life, and his newly-arrived cousin, Supergirl. Supervising producer James Tucker (Justice League, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) directs the film from a script by Bob Goodman (Warehouse 13, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Parts 1 & 2).

Update - The Blu-ray release of Superman: Unbound includes over four hours of extras, including:

  • Audio Commentary with creative team members Mike Carlin, Bob Goodman and James Tucker
  • Kandor: History of the Bottle City - A look at the history of the shrunken city of Kandor
  • Brainiac: Technology and Terror - Examine the Brainiac mythology
  • Sneak Peek at Justice League - The Flashpoint Paradox, the next DC Universe Animated Original Movie
  • Four bonus episodes from Superman: The Animated Series:
    • The Last Son of Krypton, Part 1
    • New Kids in Town
    • Little Girl Lost, Parts 1 & 2
  • Digital Comic Excerpt from "Superman: Brainiac" by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank

That's a bad ass cover. I'll rent this though before buying.

Looks interesting, much better then superman vs The elite (which I found less then steller). On a side note, DC animation needs to hold off on the batman and superman movies for a bit, yes they are usually great but there's hundreds of characters to explore. What ever happened to the 10-15 minute shorts that used to be included with each release? Those were well done

I wish they kept a more consitant animation style.....its hard enough to deal with constantly changing voice overs these days.

Actually looks good for once. Apart from 3 or 4 titles, I haven't enjoyed most of the DC animated movies. And the only Superman one I loved was the Superman/Shazam short which was stellar. And the cover art for this is ten shades of awesome. I will rent first as I'm too often disappointed to risk a blind-buy but this will be a day one rental as I'm a huge Superman fan!!

Look pretty good. I hope it as good as the trailer makes it out to be. The reason DC hasn't gone on to more development on other characters is because Batman and Superman SELL (I'm sure that's why we get JL movies too). I read an article a while back saying that the Wonder Woman and Green Lantern movies did not sell as well as hoped. I think there is a Flash animated movie coming up, hopefully that will sell and DC will begin to explore more characters again. Until sales pick-up for these 'other' characters, we will keep getting Superman and Batman features.

Matt Bomer should have been the new live action Superman, but I takes what I gets.

Not digging Bomer's voice for Supes, it doesn't have any authority to it. @bondfooll, not sure about him being the live action Supes. He has the face, but being under 6ft, small build and lacking an authoritative voice, I just can't see it.

I just hope that they follow the comics for Superman as this was the first part of The lost Kingdom of Kandor arc that lasted for Two or three years ultimately leading to Superman Walking the earth deciding what to do with his life.

Looks good. I've read the story this is based on and it's fun, but nothing deep. A good story though, perfect to lighten up the mood after some dark DCU movies. Glad to see the extras updated. Anyone know why Bruce Timm wasn't involved with this? Was he busy with the next film, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (yes, it's now called that)?

I enjoy these DC Universe movies. Though they may be short, they're really cheap and very entertaining. I'll certainly pick this one up.

I'm disappointed they're only putting The Last Son of Krypton Part 1 on this when there are 3 parts and the whole constitutes the pilot film for the Superman Animated Series. I was hoping they would put all 3 as they deal with Brainiac. Bunch of cheapskates...

Braniac is woefully underused in the cartoon universe. Its always Lex Luthor. Nice to see him get his own movie. I thought he looked cooler as an android in Super Powers Team cartoons.
