‘Samurai Jack’ Creator Reveals Superman Suit From Canceled DC Nation Short

The Samurai Jack creator shared his take on Superman!

Samurai Jack and Primal creator Genndy Tartakovsky has shared a stunning look at the Superman suit from his canceled DC Nation animated short.

Genndy Tartakovsky, the man behind Samurai Jack and the Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series, was developing a Superman short back in 2013. The Superman short would’ve been a part of Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block that lasted from 2012 to 2014. The death of DC Nation in 2014 seemingly led to the death of the short.

Superman has received a few animated treatments as of late, but what Genndy Tartakovsky would’ve brought to the Man of Steel is tantalizing given his excellent eye for action. Some concept art from the scrapped short has been shared in the past, but now the Samurai Jack creator has released a clear look at Superman’s suit on Instagram that echoes the Fleischer cartoons from the ’40s.

Superman was last seen on the big screen in Justice League. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:

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.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League Cut is set to hit HBO Max in 2021. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news surrounding Superman and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content in the future!
