Clark Kent’s alter ego will first star in the adaptation of Superman: Red Son in the new year, followed up by Superman: Man of Tomorrow. The animated Red Son will be based on the comic story of the same name written by Mark Millar, Dave Johnson, and Killian Plunkett. Then, Man of Tomorrow will be an original story featuring a young Kent during his early tenure as the hero.
The three-issue Red Son adaptation is an Elseworlds tale that took place if Kal-El crash-landed in Soviet Russia during the Cold War rather than the heart of America. While The CW’s Supergirl loosely adapted this storyline this year with Supergirl’s clone Red Daughter and Lex Luthor training for battle in Kaznia, DC’s announcement seems to indicate this film will be a more traditional adaptation of the story.
No further details about the films have been revealed.
