Superman’s newest action-comedy revival ages Kal-El down to a young man in his 20s just starting out in Metropolis. Originally called My Friend Superman, it was quietly put into production amid the Warner Bros. reshuffling in 2021 and 2022, and is now a month away from its official release on Adult Swim. Check out the official trailer.
The show will portray Superman as an unknown hero, acting like a vigilante in a Metropolis that doesn’t know the first thing about this guy. With a classic palette, a bland animation style, and the usual foibles of Superman dealing with his original supporting cast while also learning how to be a superhero, the trailer doesn’t inspire much confidence. Lois Lane is voiced by Alice Lee and Jimmy Olsen by Ishmel Sahid.
My Adventures With Superman has its two-episode series premiere Thursday, July 6 at midnight on Adult Swim. it will be available to stream the next day on HBO Max.
