, Superman still has time to demonstrate the value of his brand of heroism in the upcoming Superman Vs. The Elite,

The movie, directed by Batman: The Brave and The Bold‘s Michael Chang and adapted by Kelly from his own script to Action Comics #775, pits the Man of Steel against the Elite, a group of superheroes who are more than willing to kill to achieve their victory, something that Superman unsurprisingly takes exception to.

George Newbern and David Kaufman reprise their Justice League TV series voice roles as Superman and Jimmy Olsen respectively, while NCIS‘ Pauley Perrette steps in to voice Lois Lane this time around.
Superman Vs. The Elite is released on DVD and BluRay June 12.
