Superman/Batman: Apocalypse World Premiere Q&A

Tim Daly stars as the voice of Superman After the success of last year's Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, which still stands as one of the most popular DC Universe Animated Original Movies ever made, it was inevitable that producers would eventually create a follow-up. Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, the first sequel to ever be made from the DC Universe Animated Original Movies, is based on the popular comic book story "Superman/Batman: Supergirl" written by Jeph Loeb and late comic book artist Michael Turner, which itself was actually the sequel to the graphic novel that Superman/Batman: Public Enemies was based on written by Loeb and artist Ed McGuiness.
