WATCH: Zack Snyder directs Superman 75th birthday animated short

October 15th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Well, Superman is 75 this year – doesn’t he look well though? – and Man Of Steel Director Zack Snyder has directed a pretty cool new animated short in celebration of the year.

The short by Znyder and the man behind Batman: The Animated Series and much more, Bruce Timm, chronicles the history of Big Blue from the very first cover of Action Comics right up to this past summer’s Man Of Steel movie. And it’s pretty tasty stuff.

The video is available to watch right now over at EW.

Let us know what you think in all the usual ways, guys… up, up and away!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
