Kara punching Superman now I really am looking forward to seeing this movie.
Superman/Batman Apocalypse: "New Kara" Clip
I saw the movie already, I loved it. very true to the source material which i also loved. The changes they made toward the end in the movie actually make it better in my eyes then the comic. I was like wow now thats a Supergirl, her training that she got from the amazons finally got to shine through.
Watched today On-Demand. Thought it was pretty good. The DCU continues to produce high quality animated movies.
just finished watching the movie and I have 2 minor complaints
2. at the end of the story when Superman introduce Kara as Supergirl...in the comics he introduced her to a huge grouping of DC's heroes including the JLA, JSA, and the Teen Titans...it gave the moment a much more epic feeling...in the movie he introduces her to a group of random Amazons and I just kind of thought "who cares?" she's not going to be working with the Amazons as Supergirl...shouldn't he have introduced her to the people that she would be working with?
other than those 2 small complaints...it was a pretty good movie...not as good as Wonder Woman or Green Lantern...but still a pretty good film
Excellent animated movie. Everyone who needed to be in the story was, and while they did "tweak" some aspects of the original story the did it in a way that was very enjoyable. I particularly enjoyed the SG vs DS KDDO when Supergirl went all "Female Fury" on Darkseid.
"As she should always be!"Big Barda is badass
Watched this DVD last night, and have many, many problems with it. I'll just start with one for now. Does anyone else think that Andre Braugher was completely miscast as Darkseid? It seemed like every line he had for Darkseid was rushed. As if he was trying to get through them as quickly as possible and didn't seem to enjoy or understand the role. Frankly, I would have preferred Michael Dorn as Darkseid. He would have been an excellent voice for that character.
I liked this movie, all the fight scenes were nice, but I didn't feel batman's presence all that much, and there were a few cheesy lines, but all in all a good film especially the last fight scene with Darkseid, though I found Kara's taste in outfits a little too slutty in this movie, no offense to SG fans
I kinda liked the movie, except for some changes becouse of the adaptation, I enjoyed Superman beating the living daylights of Darkseid, I was waiting for him to start shout ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA ORA O
This might be an minority opinion, but the introduction of the new Kara even in the comics was such a rushed, shallow, perfunctory and haphazard story. We never got to know who Kara was as a character. I read the entire series in one sitting and was left feeling pretty embarrassed for the writer.
Besides, the internal monologues that Geoff Johns wrote for his Superman/Batman stories is the closest thing to character development the story has, and there's no proper way to include them in an animated adaptation. So we're left with Kara showing up, Batman being suspicious, Darkseid brainwashing, and then fight.
Considering the equally brain-dead storyline in Superman/Batman Public Enemies, I'm beginning to realize that the stories of the DCAU are leagues ahead of their comic book counterparts. Crisis on Two Earths was such a well-paced and engaging story in comparison to the souless continuity house-cleaning of the comic book Crisis events.
I'd rather see more original content maybe borrowing concepts or premises from the comics rather than more direct adaptations of popular but amazingly poor comic book story-lines.
