DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation have unveiled the first trailer for their upcoming Superman Red Son animated movie.

The original 2003 Elseworlds graphic novel by Mark Millar, Dave Johnson and Killian Plunkett of the same name is one of the most iconic alternate-world stories featuring the Man Of Steel.

The premise is essentially what would happen if Kal-El AKA Superman landed in Soviet Union Russia and becomes a symbol of Communism, instead of landing in Kansas and fighting for Truth, Justice and the American Way.

Along the way, he gets into conflict with the entire world, including a Russian Batman and a US Marine Corps consisting of Green Lanterns. It’s epic and bonkers all at the same time.

While this will be the first full-fledged adaptation of Superman Red Son, CW’s Supergirl Season 4 did feature a looser adaptation of the story with a clone of Kara Zor-El AKA Supergirl who was raised in Communist Kaznia.

The voice cast for Superman Red Son includes:

  • Jason Isaacs – Superman
  • Diedrich Bader – Lex Luthor
  • Amy Acker – Lois Lane
  • Vanessa Marshall – Wonder Woman
  • Phil Morris – James Olsen
  • Paul Williams – Brainiac
  • Sasha Roiz – Hal Jordan
  • Phil LaMarr – Jon Stewart
  • Roger Graig Smith – Batman
  • Travis Willingham – John F. Kennedy/Superior Man
  • William Sayers – Joseph Stalin
  • Ave Zoli – Svetlana

Superman Red Son is slated to release sometime in early 2020. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
