Based on DC’s famed Elseworlds tale from 2003, Superman: Red Son takes place in an alternate reality where the spaceship bearing the last survivor of Krypton crash lands not in rural Kansas, but in Stalinist Russia. Can this Cold War-era Earth survive the coming of a Soviet Superman?
Golden Globe-nominated actor Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter franchise, Star Trek: Discovery, DC Universe Movies series) leads a stellar cast as the voice of the alternate, Soviet take on Superman. Joining Isaacs is Diedrich Bader (American Housewife) as Lex Luthor, Amy Acker (Angel) as Lois Lane, Vanessa Marshall (Young Justice) as Wonder Woman, Phil Morris (Doom Patrol) as James Olsen, Academy Award winner Paul Williams (Goliath) as Brainiac, Roger Craig Smith (Batman Ninja) as Batman, Sasha Roiz (Grimm) as Hal Jordan, Phil LaMarr (Futurama) as John Stewart, Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation) as John F. Kennedy, Travis Willingham (Batman: Bad Blood) as Superior Man, William Salyers (Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders) as Joseph Stalin, and Winter Ave Zoli (Sons of Anarchy) as Svetlana.
Superman: Red Son is produced and directed by Sam Liu (Reign of the Supermen) from a script by J.M. DeMatteis (Batman: Bad Blood, Constantine: City of Demons). Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) is co-producer. Amy McKenna (The Death of Superman) is producer. Executive Producers are Sam Register and Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series), and the film is set to hit digital platforms on February 25 and physical shelves on March 17.
