The marketing campaign for Warner Bros. Animation’s newest DVD release, SuperMan VS The Elite, may be akin to a breadcrumb trail compared to the opened floodgates style of promotion that’s more popular these days, but now that we’re only a few days away from its June 12 DVD, it seems that we’re going to start seeing more and more teasers, and this time, we get a new action-filled clip that features The Atomic Skull.
The clip shows the Atomic Skull being his usual Atomic self, melting innocent civilians. It’s unfortunate for him that the stampeding civilians include Clark Kent himself, and before the radioactive villain can do further harm, The Man of Steel Swoops in and takes him to a place where his butt can be kicked without harming innocent bystanders.
Superman VS The Elite is directed by Michael Chang from a script by Joe Kelly, who also penned the DC Comics release adapted for the flick. George Newbern (Justice League) stars as Superman with Pauley Perrette (NCIS) as Lois Lane, Robin Atkin Downes as Manchester Black and David Kaufman reprising his role as Jimmy Olsen. Bruce Timm serves as exec producer with Alan Burnett (Green Lantern: Emerald Knight) producing.
