MTV have put up the first trailer for Dwayne McDuffie’s adaptation of Grant Morrison’s All-Star Superman as part of the DC Universe direct-to-DVD line.
The trailer is interesting and they obviously have tried to hit iconic beats from the series, but I’m not quite as excited about this one as I have been for some of the their other releases. If I think there is a single problem it is that the trailer makes it look rather similar to the Death of Superman – i.e. a Superman who dies – feature from a few years ago.
All-Star came about after a chance meeting between Superman and Grant Morrison. Grant and Mark Waid talk about their meeting him in this clip from Respect! Films and Sequart’s documentary Talking with Gods – a new documentary about Grant’s work.
