Can't wait to buy this movie on bluray. I wonder what the next animated film is going to be.
Superman/Batman Apocalypse: "Tank" Clip
Does nobody pay attention to anything? We know what the next 3 are going to be in order.
All Star Superman
Green Lantern: Emerald Warriors
Batman: Year One
And It's called Superman/Batman: Apocalypse because it's directly based off the second storyline in the comic series of the same name, the second arc after Public Enemies.
Pay attention to these things xp
On a less condescending note, it looks like they're animating in the Style of Crisis on Two Earths instead of Public Enemies, which is odd since this is more or less a direct sequel to the latter and uses the same voices. Although COTE was easily the very best of these recent DVD movies and I would LOVE if this was a precursor to a new Justice League Animated Series with the animation style, voices, and continuity of COTE.
Also I apologize if I came off as an ass in my first part of this comment, it just sometimes surprises me how people can be right up on stuff like this but not know about the other nearly directly related stuff.
And they've been over his origin so many times. Year One exists already. It's called Batman Begins. It may not be the same, but all the important bits are there. Give some spotlight to some characters who need it more. The Flash for example? The only one of the big 5 NOT having a solo movie so far? Or The Outsiders! Best comic book team ever imo, and they have LOTS of Movie-Worthy stories.
And on another note, they're doing a good job of making these movies unique. Public Enemies was really close to the source, but most of the rest aren't directly based on any stories. Death of Superman was RADICALLY different than Superman: Doomsday, First Flight wasn't a direct comic, Wonder Woman wasn't, Crisis On Two Earths was only BARELY similar to Earth-2. Like, The set up is the same, Good Luthor comes to DCU earth and the JLA debate wether or not to help him. THAT'S THE END OF THE SIMILARITIES.
Red Hood was a great example of similar to the source yet clearly had it's own identity. BUT, if you notice, the ones based directly on comics use the same title. Public Enemies, New Frontier, etc. So, I'm sure Year One will be very close to the source since it shares the title, but honestly, it's the first time I've thought even an iota about skipping one of these straight to DVD DC movies.

I've recently watched the original cartoon series and he punches a laser to submission!

"Was Superman actually just punching fire? "
Yes. Yes, he was. Superman's so bad he can beat up fire.
Can find the link to the episode in the spoiler. It is free and legal to watch due to how old it is.
