‘Man of Steel’ Short Film Premiere at Comic-Con 2013

Man of Steel short film
Warner Bros.

In celebration of the 75th anniversary of Superman’s creation, Warner Bros. has announced that an ambitious new ‘Man of Steel‘ short film is being developed by director Zack Snyder and it’s looking like we’ll get our first look at the film at Comic-Con 2013.

Details on the ‘Man of Steel’ short are slim, but here’s what we know: Snyder is producing the animated short, and it will run approximately two minutes. According to Heat Vision, the short film will consist of one continuous shot and will pay tribute to all of the various forms Superman has taken over the years; from Max Fleischer’s cartoons of the ’40s, to his many comic book iterations and the live-action versions played by George Reeves and Christopher Reeve. It will all lead, naturally, to Henry Cavill‘s take on Superman in ‘Man of Steel.’

Bruce Timm (‘Batman: The Animated Series,’ ‘Justice League’) and ‘Man of Steel’ storyboard artist Jay Oliva are working with Snyder on the untitled short, currently in production in Los Angeles, London and Korea. Warner Bros. and DC are planning to show a version of the short at Comic-Con 2013, ahead of a fall debut across multiple platforms.

Warner Bros. and DC are going all out with their Superman tribute this year; earlier this month they released the animated film ‘Superman Unbound’ and in a few weeks they’ll unveil the new comic book ‘Superman Unchained.’ He’ll also be a key figure in the upcoming game ‘Infinite Crisis.’

And if you can’t get enough DC superhero love, here’s a reminder: next year is Batman‘s 75th anniversary!
