Matt Bomer is Superman: Unbound

Superman UnboundWhite Collar fans, rejoice! It’s been announced that Matt Bomer will be the voice of the iconic superhero in a new DC Universe animated film coming later this spring. But he’s not the only familiar face (or voice) – Bomer leads an all-star cast that includes Stana Katic and John Noble.

Go behind the cut for some more info, along with some gorgeous stills from the movie.

 

 

Superman: Unbound is based on the 2008 release entitled Superman: Brainiac, which was written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Gary Frank. In Brainiac, Superman is busy dealing with both Supergirl and Lois Lane when Metropolis is attacked by Brainiac, the force responsible for the destruction of Krypton.

This isn’t Matt Bomer’s first brush with playing the Man of Steel. Back in 2003, Brett Ratner was working on a project called Superman Flyby, in which he planned to cast Bomer as the Man of Steel. Ultimately, that never came to fruition and Bryan Singer took over the project, eventually releasing Superman Returns starring Brandon Routh.

Superman: Unbound also stars John Noble (Fringe, The Lord of the Rings) as Brainiac, Stana Katic (Castle) as Lois Lane and Molly Quinn (Castle) as Supergirl. Check out some character stills from the movie below followed by the full press release, which contains information about everything you’ll find on the Combo Pack.

BURBANK, CA (February 21, 2012) – A destructive force is devastating planets across the galaxy – with Earth next in its sights – and even Superman may not be capable of halting the terror in SUPERMAN: UNBOUND, the next entry in the ongoing series of DC Universe Animated Original Movies. Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, the all-new, PG-13 rated film arrives May 7, 2013 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as a Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP) and DVD ($19.98 SRP), On Demand and for Digital Download. The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack will include UltraViolet™*.

Based on the Geoff Johns/Gary Frank 2008 release “Superman: Brainiac,” SUPERMAN: UNBOUND finds the Man of Steel aptly handling day-to-day crime while helping acclimate Supergirl to Earth’s customs and managing Lois Lane’s expectations for their relationship. Personal issues take a back seat when the horrific force responsible for the destruction of Krypton – Brainiac – begins his descent upon Earth. Brainiac has crossed the universe, collecting cities from interesting planets – including Supergirl’s home city of Kandor – and now the all-knowing, ever-improving android has his sights fixed on Metropolis. Superman must summon all of his physical and intellectual resources to protect his city, the love of his life and his newly-arrived cousin.

The film’s stellar voicecast is led by Matt Bomer (White Collar) as Superman, John Noble (Fringe, The Lord of the Rings films) as Brainiac, Stana Katic (Castle) as Lois Lane and Molly Quinn (Castle) as Supergirl. Additional voices in the cast include Golden Globe Award winner Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under) as Ma Kent, Wade Williams (The Dark Knight Rises) as Perry White, Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey Show, Office Space) as Steve Lombard, Stephen Root (Boardwalk Empire, Justified) as Zor-El, and Alexander Gould (Weeds) as Jimmy Olsen.

Supervising Producer James Tucker (Justice League, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) also directs the film from a script by Bob Goodman (Warehouse 13, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns).

SUPERMAN: UNBOUND adds an all-new chapter to the growing legacy of animated films featuring the Man of Steel and his epic challenges to maintain peace on Earth,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Home Video Vice President, Family & Animation and Partner Brands Marketing. “Matt Bomer’s voice epitomizes the All-American hero that is Superman, and John Noble counters that tone with a commanding, chilling delivery for Brainiac. A superhero is only as good as the depths of his opposition, and Noble brings out the best in his villainous portrayal of Brainiac.”

  • Standard and high definition versions of the feature film
