‘Superman: The Animated Series’ Gets A Live-Action Intro Using ‘Man Of Steel’ Footage

Superman Man of Steel Zack Snyder Henry Cavill2018 is turning out to be a pretty big year for Superman. Not only is the character eighty years old (and yet he doesn’t look a day over thirty-five!), but it’s also the fifth anniversary of the start of the DC Extended Universe, Man Of Steel. And one fan has shown their love of the movie with a music video featuring the theme to Superman: The Animated Series, spliced together with clips from Superman’s DCEU appearances.

The video manages to do the opening of the acclaimed series justice, starting as Joe-El and Lara sending their newborn son to Earth just as Krypton meets its doom, and showcasing the events of Man Of Steel and Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, as well featuring the deleted scene from Justice League where Superman (Henry Cavill) meets up with Alfred Pennyworth (Jeremy Irons).

This is nothing new, as YouTubers make live-action remakes of DCAU shows all the time, but this video might be one of the best, and truly honors Superman, even if Man Of Steel is a very divisive movie. Just watching this alone will undoubtedly fill fans with joy, and perhaps memories, of watching the legendary show, and once again believing a man can fly.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, and DVD.

9 Times Joker Fought The Justice League And Won

Previous1 of 10

The Joker Justice League DC ComicsThe Joker is more than just a thorn in Batman’s side. The Clown Prince of Crime has taken on various members of the Justice League and lived to laugh another day. His dastardly plots are dangerous for everyone, and sometime he wants to take on an opponent who doesn’t know him as well as Batman does. Out of the entire superhero community, Batman clearly knows Joker best, so it makes sense that sometimes he wants to stretch his creative muscles and try and take down other heroes.

The character may physically just be a human being, but he still poses a threat to god-like figures like Superman and Wonder Woman. He may hurt his hand if he directly punches the last son of Krypton, but that doesn’t mean he can’t hurt him just as easily as he can anyone else. No matter how confusing he may be, Joker’s an intelligent, ruthless villain who happily picks on anybody he wants.
