No story details have been confirmed for the two-minute short, but insiders claim it will be one continuous shot without edits. The short will pay homage to the various incarnations of Superman throughout the years, including Max Fleischer's cartoons, film performances by George Reeves and Christopher Reeve, iconic versions drawn by artists Wayne Boring, Curt Swan and Neal Adams, and Henry Cavill's interpretation in Man of Steel. Warner Bros. and DC are planning on showing an animatic version of the short at San Diego Comic-Con 2013, before it debuts this fall in multiple platforms.
Man of Steel storyboard artist Jay Oliva, Geoff Johns, Mike Carlin, and Peter Girardi are also contributing to the short.
The year-long celebration kicked off earlier this month with the release of Superman: Unbound on Blu-ray and DVD, and continues with the June 14 release of Man of Steel, WB Interactive's Infinite Crisis online game, and more Superman shorts that will debut during Cartoon Network's DC Nation animation block this fall.
