Did You Know?

While this film features the same character designs, general look and style, and some of the previous cast members of "Superman" (1996), this film is in no way part of the same universe or canon. Duane Capizzi stated that this was indeed a film for children and was not intended for an adult audience that the animated series had been written for (despite being marketed as a Saturday morning show). He said that he and the creative team simply "borrowed" the designs of the former television show.See more »

Even kids would get bored with this one, 19 June 2006
Author: cine-11 from Ogdensburg, NY, USA

Although I'm a college educated adult, I actually like the Superman, Batman and Justice League cartoon series (I'm sure I'm far from alone on this one). The plots have been excellent examples of sci-fi writing and can be quite clever,complex and entertaining. Not so this one. The vast majority of this movie consisted of Superman and Braniac pounding each other into the ground, throwing each other through buildings, etc. The encounters went on for so long I got bored and fastforwarded through the monotony. There is a weak plot that holds this together, but it's not strong enough to redeem it. The phrase "phoning it in" leaps to mind. If you're a Superman fan, you're going to be disappointed in this.
