All Star Superman Movie
If you can’t wait for the 2012 re launch of the Superman movie this is a great fill in for the time being. All-Star Superman is based on the 12 issue miniseries originally written by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely.
It really is as good as any cartoon could get. The story follows the main theme of the comic series along with a few changes to make it more digestible for those not familiar with the comics.
I haven’t read a bad review of the movie as it is pretty much an animated masterpiece and if the 2012 movie had been cancelled this would have been a great replacement.
The voice acting in the movie is done by a great cast who you will pretty much recognise even if you can’t put a voice to a name.
- James Denton (Desperate Housewives) as Superman
- Christina Hendricks (Fire Fly) as Lois Lane
- Anthony LaPaglia as Lex Luthor
- Edward Asner as Perry White
- Obba Babatundé as Judge
- Steven Blum as Atlas
- Linda Cardellini as Nasthalthia “Nasty” Luthor
- Cathy Cavadini as Floral
- Frances Conroy as Martha Kent
- Chris Cox as Lead Agent
- Alexis Denisof (Angel/Buffy) as Dr. Leo Quintum
- John DiMaggio as Samson
- Robin Atkin Downes as Solaris
- Michael Gough as Parasite
- Matthew Gray Gubler as Jimmy Olsen
- Finola Hughes as Lilo
- Kevin Michael Richardson as Steve Lombard
- Fred Tatasciore as Krull
- Arnold Vosloo as Bar-El
Overall it’s a big step up from Doomsday and Public Enemies and well worth a worth if you get the chance.
