FIRST LOOK: Superman: Red Son (2020) – DC Universe

One of the biggest strengths DC Universe offers is the adult animated superhero movies and TV shows. They don’t have a huge quantity of movies and TV shows, but what they do offer, is usually worth checking out (Batman: The Animated Series, Harley Quinn, etc). They usually have the newest DC animated films within 3-6 months of being released.

Superman might be too OP, but he’s a lot of fun to watch. The guy can fly, has super strength, X-ray vision and really only suffers from one weakness: kryptonite.

This one has an intriguing premise.

After Krypton is destroyed, Kal-El’s ship crash lands in the Soviet Union, where he’s raised to combat the Communist ideology as Russia’s greatest protector: Superman. But as Russia’s hero begins to create chaos around the world on behalf of the Soviets, international forces must step in to save the world.
