With Man of Steel opening in theaters next weekend, the Hub Network wants to up your Supes intake with a Superman: The Animated Series marathon on Friday, June 14 (4pm ET/1pm PT), featuring five episodes of the popular animated series that originally ran 1996-2000. And to get you in the mood, the guys in the video department have outdone themselves with a shot-for-shot homage to this Man of Steel trailer. (They did a similar promo with Batman: The Animated Series prior to the Dark Knight Rises opening last year.)
In the new promo (and in the series), Tim Daly (Wings) plays Superman/Clark Kent, Dana Delany (Body of Proof) is Lois Lane, Christopher McDonald (Happy Gilmore) is Jor-El, and Mike Farrell (M*A*S*H) is Jonathan Kent. The promo starts running on the Hub on Monday but we’ve got an exclusive look at it below, along with the reference trailer. See if you can sync them up.
