DC Animated Superman: Red Son movie in the works

January 11th, 2019 by Marc Comments

With the news earlier this week that a Hush two-part animated movie was in the works at DC, we now have the news that one of the most famous Elseworlds tales, Superman: Red Son, is the next to get the animated treatment.

According to RTF the classic Mark Millar Cold War-set tale of what would happen had Kal-El’s ship landed in the Soviet Union rather than Smallville and what might this mean for earth’s greatest hero has already got its cast signed on.

Now, this is being reported as rumour but we saw the now deleted tweet by actor Diedrich Bader that said he was ‘excited to be part of this,’ so while nothing is confirmed, it’s pretty much, well, confirmed:

“Imagine a reality where the world’s most powerful super-being does not grow up in Smallville, Kansas – or even America, for that matter…”

Here’s the voice cast:

Amy Acker (Has voiced The Huntress in the past)
Anna Vocino (Has voiced Oracle several times)
Diedrich Bader (Has voiced several DC characters, But Is Best known for Batman)
Greg Chun
Jim Ward (Has voiced Commissioner Gordon various times)
Jason Isaacs (Has voiced Lex Luthor, Sinestro, and Ra’s Al Ghul)
Jason Spisak (Has frequently voiced Wally West)
Jim Meskimen (Has voiced Batman and Victor Fries)
Paul Williams (Has frequently voiced Oswald Cobblepott, aka The Penguin)
Phil Lamarr (Has voiced a wide variety of DC characters)
Phil Morris (Has voiced a wide variety of DC characters)
Roger Craig Smith (Voiced Batman in Batman Ninja)
Sasha Roiz
Tara Strong (Best known for voicing Harley Quinn, has also done Raven and Batgirl)
Travis Willingham (Has voiced Superman in several Lego DC projects)
Vanessa Marshall (She’s Black Canary on Young Justice, has also been Poison Ivy)
William Salyers (Has voiced both The Penguin and Hugo Strange)
Winter Zoli

Jason Isaacs? Amy Acker? Phil Lamarr? Tara Strong?! This has nerdy goodness written all over it.


As for who is voicing who, well, that will all come later, but for now, just be excited that the Red Son is coming…

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….
