What if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society had intended? What if a child aspired to something greater? What if this already happened in 1996?
To promote their upcoming five-episode marathon of the classic Superman: The Animated Series beginning Friday, June 14th at 4 p.m. EST, cable network The Hub created a special TV promo featuring footage from Superman: The Animated Series edited to mimic shot-for-shot this trailer for the upcoming Superman film Man of Steel, directed by Zack Snyder.
And as an added bonus, they use new audio of Man of Steel trailer dialogue voiced by the original Superman: The Animated Series voice actors reprising their roles, including Tim Daly (Superman/Clark Kent), Dana Delany (Lois Lane), Christopher MacDonald (Jor-El) and Mike Farrell (Jonathan Kent).
The Hub did the same thing last July for the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises. You can check out the Hub promo on Entertainment Weekly's site HERE, which starts running on the network Monday.
