DC Entertainment announced some major programming changes to the DC FanDome yesterday, and while it was basically split over two days, there is definitely a notable absence.
Yesterday DC Entertainment announced some changes to the DC Fandome programming, such as dividing the convention into two events and others more disappointing for fans such as the cancellation of the premiere of Superman: Man of Tomorrow this Saturday.
The premiere of Superman: Man of Tomorrow was supposed to take place on Saturday, and fans could watch the movie online for free. It didn't make a lot of sense since that would mean that Warner Bros was giving it away and opening the door to piracy; now, it seems that they have thought it better and plans to rebroadcast the animated film have been scrapped.
Multiple stars, the screenwriter, and the director were supposed to be on a panel, but that hasn't been rescheduled either, so there's a chance we won't end up seeing anything at all from the nine DC animated movie.
In Superman: Man of Tomorrow, "Daily Planet intern Clark Kent takes on-the-job learning to new extremes when Lobo and Parasito set their sights on Metropolis."
The impressive cast of voices in its original version features Darren Criss (Hollywood) playing Clark Kent, while Zachary Quinto from Star Trek will play the villain Lex Luthor. True Detective's Alexandra Daddario plays Lois Lane, Brett Dalton (Agents of SHIELD) is Lobo, Ryan Hurst (The Walking Dead) is Parasite, and Ike Amadi (Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge) is Martian Manhunter. Piotr Michael voices Perry White, while Jonathan and Martha Kent are played by Neil Flynn and Bellamy Young.
It's a shame that the premiere no longer takes place, so we will have to wait for its digital HD release on August 23 and on Blu-ray and 4K UHD on September 8.
