    Comicbook.com has revealed that there are two more villians added to the plot - Kryptonians Tor-An and Dev-Em will try and get all up in Superman's grill. Not only that, but we've got the names of the actors who are going to bring these baddies to the big screen. Both guys are Sucker Punch alums, with Richard Cetrone playing Tor-An and Revard Dufresne playing Dev-Em.

    For those of you not up to date with your Superman lore, here's a bit of background info on the new recruits.

    Tor-An is a Kryptonian and was formerly held prisoner within The Phantom Zone. He's also a member of the military guild and served under General Zod, before heading to Earth and becoming a sleeper agent under the alias David Carter. Dev-Em is also a Kryptonian who was held prisoner within the Phantom Zone

    @ROFLitschristian It was shown at an Adult Cartoon Convention back in 1996, Cartoon Network banned the episode from airing on television. Word got out, and Adult swim finally released the never before seen episode until now.

    @ejk1 It most definatly would have been had it been released in theaters. As it stands it is UR but yes, that is a violent and bloddy movie.

    Can't believe nobody mentioned The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, which was an R-rated animated movie.

    @ghostman There's always a genius behind a kids show who begs to wonder what their product might look like it was adult orientated.

    @narrator@skywise If we're going anime, Ninja Scroll has to be R as well.

    You guys are forgetting the recently released uncut version of "Dexters Laboratory: Rude Removal" episode that contains all kind of swear words.

    @narrator I thought about mentioning Japanese animted movies but then I would be here all day.

    But I agree, Akira was a monumental film - not for kids (altho i was about 14 when I saw it).

    @thedude-abides you wouldnt be missing out on much. Waking Life is worth a watch but like @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Waltz with Bashir really shouldn't be missed.
