75 Years of Superman in One Amazing Animated Short [Video]

Superman has seen a lot of changes, but at New York Comic Con 2013, they managed to combine them all into one awesome animated short.

It's Superman's 75th anniversary and to honor that, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and DC animation king Bruce Timm created this two-minute animated short. It covers everything from from comics, to movies, video games, and pop art.

"The idea was to start with Siegel and Shuster and end with Henry Cavill, stopping at all the high points and iconic moments in between," Timm told EW. "It was Zack Snyder’s idea. We had approached him about maybe doing a short for the DC Nation program on Cartoon Network. He said, ‘I’ll think about it,’ and then he had this idea to do basically the entire history of Superman in, like, a minute. We said, ‘Okay … whoooo.’ We started working and quickly realized there was no way to do it, even in a minute."

So, they doubled the length and combed through the history of Superman till they came up with the final video and it's awesome.

The video doesn't allow embedding, so watch it at Entertainment Weekly!

  3. Timm will always be a legend for the Animated series.  What's your favorite animation from him?

  4. It was a rite of passage Alex. Classic stuff.

  5. BTAS Using black first, then taking it away for the lighter scenes was inventive, and set the tone for the whole series. I even have some of his Comics like Batman Mad love the graphic novel that has Harley Quinn's origins.
