Warner Bros has released a new clip from Superman: Red Son which shows a newsreel, showing off the Man of Steel’s powers in service to the Soviet Union.
Superman: Red Son is, of course, an Elseworlds story in which Superman’s ship crashlanded in the Stalin-era Soviet Union. As such, the Man of Steel was raised with the ideals of the Soviet Union and communism installed in him at a young age. As a result, you have a Superman character who still has all his powers but with ideologies that are completely warped from the original character that we know and love.
With Superman: Red Son‘s release date fast approaching, Warner Bros is now waking up its marketing machine for the upcoming film. Earlier today it released a clip from the upcoming film showing an American news anchor reporting on the situation. You can see the full Superman: Red Son clip below:
